    Advice on new scope purchase

    I have the V-4 you’re considering, excellent glass and tracks well. The only down side is the thick cross hairs.

    Non waterproof boots

    I’ve had good luck with Danner Tanicus hot weather boots. They aren’t America made but a better quality and fit than Danners Reckoning

    Accubond bullets

    I’ve ran into a similar problem with AccuBond where the tips are deformed. I’ve gone back to the Partitions for that reason. Had the same issue with Hornady ELD-Xs

    Which barrel manufacturer to go with?

    I just had my M-70 7mmRM rebarreled with a Shilen. This is the second Shilen barrel I’ve had done. The first was on a MRC X-3, both are great shooters. 26 inch chrome moly.

    Advice choosing hunting reticle

    I’ve got a V-6 in the #92 and a V-4 with the #94 reticule. The MOA changes with magnification. I just dial up elevation and don’t mess the hash marks. Zeiss scopes track great. Red Hawk Rifles offer some pretty good deals on their demo optics

    Spotting Scopes

    Ive got the Razor 27x60x85, it’s a great scope. Glass is very good, but it’s just to heavy to pack

    Wet Tumbler

    I de-prime, wet tumble with stainless pins. Size, trim, square primer pockets then use corn cob & Nu-finish to polish before loading

    Hornady ELD-X 143gr or Berger Ellite Hunter 140gr

    I killed 2 animals with the ELD/X one was with a 6.5X55 and the other was a 7RM just past 250 yards. Both bullets blew up and wasted a lot of meat. Good bullet out passed 300
