    Mountain goat bullet selection.

    I filled my resident WY Mtn goat in 2018. 6.5x284: 140 Berger Hunting VLD’s. 1st shot @ 444 yds. He went 30 yds out of sight and bedded, put one more in him to finish the job at 330 yds. He never got up. What area did you draw? My Bro-in-law drew the same tag in about luck!

    Bullet puller

    I just bought a Grip-n-Pull. I’ve pulled around 70 bullets with it. It’s works good for volume batches. It will wear on your hand a little and can scuff the bullet. If it’s for small volume, I’d go with the hammer style. Just make sure there is some felt in the nose of the hammer so you...

    Boot recommendation

    I’ve went through multiple pairs of Meidls, the IQ is a good boot. The Danner Elk hunter was pretty descent. I never tried Kenetrek, too much arch for me. I’ve been running Lathrop & Sons since 2018 and I really like em. They are not cheap, you will spend near $1000 if you have them make a...

    18" 7mm SAUM twist rate

    I'm really wanting to do a short barreled 7saum. I'm not just sure what twist rate to go with, my plan is to shoot 162 - 175gr bullets. I've read a bunch of different threads on here, as well as, rokslide, accurate shooter, snipers hide and others. What I'm finding is that none of these...

    Best pack for mountain hunting

    I’ve been using the Kuiu Icon Pro since 2018. I got the 3200 and 7200 bag along with the suspension. I normally just have the 3200 bag on and I do like it. It is nice because you can pack game bags/quarters in between the pack and suspension. I used the 7200 bag on my Mtn goat hunt and I...
