    6.5 Sherman VS 280 Ackley Improved

    Another benefit of the 280AI is in a pinch you can hunt with it shoot 280 Remingtons! Fire form while you have fun!

    6.5 Sherman VS 280 Ackley Improved

    You got that right! A heavier slower bullet will out penetrate and fast light bullet! Especially for elk!

    Temp stable .270 wsm powder

    H4831SC has been a great powder and I have not had any temp issues with it. Have used in hot weather in south Texas to 10 degrees F in Montana. It has kept consistent. Best of luck

    So Will the .270 Win Overtake the CM's and PRC's?

    270 Win is the bread winner in my book for hunting over all CM or PRC. CM and PRC are great but the 270 win is a fantastic round!

    .280 or 6.5x284 for elk

    Speed does not kill! The heavier 160 AB will out penetrate the 140 AB. 160 much better for elk hunting.

    Barnes TSX bullets

    why not try Barnes 150 TTSX bullet out if your 308? Better velocity and your really not shooting that far, well 400 yards under hunting conditions at a live target is far. ALL Barnes TSX and TTSX bullets require A min of 1800 FPS to get expansion. Your SD and BC will be plenty for any animal...

    Hammer hype?

    I have used Barnes TSX and TTSX for many years and love them. Back in the mid 90’s I harvested a Nalgi with 180 gr TSX actually shot him at around 40 yards with 300 RUM. I had complete pass thru, he ran about 60 yards and dropped dead. I did find one leaf of the X in the exit hide. Total...

    Best cleaners

    You could give wipe out a try with its accelerator. No elbow grease needed. Use a few patches soaked with wipeout accelerator than spray wipeout foam and let it sit overnight if needed. Repeated until no more blue on patch. witches brew from Darrel Holland ART is another great product...

    7mm rem mag build

    If you do t want to reload I would highly recommend go with a caliber you can find ammo for just about anywhere in case something happens while your traveling on a hunt of a life time! Don't get caught up in all these new wave calibers. They are fantastic but I would recommend looking at the...

    Shoulder shots

    Lot of great reply’s. Personally I always try for a broadside **** behind the shoulder. No matter which hunting bullet you use, hydrostatic shock is how bullets kill. Putting a well placed shot into the boiler room will result in a very quick humane kill. High shoulder shots are trying to...
