    Good stuff. I never do reduced loads for anything. I load to lower end of published and cross referenced load data If I want a “light load”.40 plus years at it. Stay safe all.

    Scope or Red Dot for turkey gun?

    Red dot at 45 yards. Tried both. I think in the East in heavy cover target acquisition is easier With red dot.Go back and forth on TSS and Hevi shot.

    lifetime hunt-Oryx on White Sands missile range

    great info. Suppose you had one last western big game hunt in your budget( physically and financially). What species would you older hunters pick? Elk, mule deer, whitetail, antelope, moose, exotic? Oryx sounds interesting.
