    What do you do with the Carcass?

    kstrick You are right, the creek is not a good idea. I should ask where to discard of the carcass as stated by blipelt. And if there is no where recommended then I should make a suggestion of some where far away from the hunting and grazing areas. I hunt just south of Selma and around the...

    What do you do with the Carcass?

    I guess I should drag them off and dump them in the creek to keep the smell away from my hunting area.

    What do you do with the Carcass?

    Quick Question, This year will be my first try at coyote hunting. I have no need for the hide but I wanted to know what do must of you do with the carass after you shoot one, bury it, leave it, ...? Here in Alabama on land where we hunt whitetail I have been seeing increasing signs of coyotes...

    Expected accuracy from 458

    Stormrider, No offense taken but your reason is pretty much the same reason I plan on using it for deer and boar when I get the opportunity. I originally want a bolt action 45-70 but the 458 was easier to do. With the 458 I used the same boltface as a 7mm rem or 300 win mag and didn't have to...

    Expected accuracy from 458

    Thanks for the reply. I don't plan on shooting pass 200 - 250 yards MAX while hunting Whitetail and the occasional boar. I want to be able to reliably place the bullet in the vitals at this range. The recoil isn't so bad. I have it in a Boyd stock with about 2.5 - 3 pounds of lead in the...

    Expected accuracy from 458

    I know this is not a long rang cartridge but I am trying to put together a good load for my 458 Win Mag. it is built on a savage action with a Douglas barrel (27"). I want to make sure that I am trying for realistic results. I am using 350grn hornady round nose, Winchester cases...

    Scope base choice 0 or 20 MOA

    Thanks for the advice on using the inserts. I did order the Burris Z rings along with the base which should be here today. So what you are saying is that I can use the 5 offes inserts on the front (muzzle side) and put 10 or 20 inserts on the rear (butt side) and get the same results as using a...

    Scope base choice 0 or 20 MOA

    I just picked up a Nikon Buckmaster 4.5x14-40mm scope that I am putting on my 308 and was hoping for advice on the the scope base. I ordered a ferral base with 0 MOA yesterday and wasn't sure if this would work for a shooting distance of 500 yds or so. How for can I expect to shoot before...

    Go / No go gauge???

    I built a 458 win mag on a Savage action and used a case to set up the headspace off the belt. I inserted the case with the barrel loose and then closed the bolt. I then tighten the barrel by hand until it came to a stop and wouldn't turn any more unless I applied more force. Next I locked the...

    Thanks, I will be getting me a long action savage in a couple of days since it has been confirmed that the 308 will work in the long action. This opens up so many more option for a later date. Thanks for the replies.

    308 in Long action....

    I am building another rig based on a savage/steven action and have found a long action savage. My question is will a 308 work in the long action with out problems? Problems such as cycling from the magazine or poping out? Thanks in advance, KBB

    SOLD/EXPIRED WTB a Savage short action

    I am gathering all of the parts for my next build and I need a Savage short action with a bolt face that fit the 308 win. I am looking for the action that has the staggered Magazine not the new center feed.

    another Savage

    Great Job!!! Is it still a 308? looking at the picture it appears to be a long action. What are your thoughts about the SS scope? I heard they were goning to make a variable scope this year.

    Opinions & Suggestions on New firearm?

    I haven't shot it in the field yet. I have only punched paper with it so far. I must say for the amount I like to shoot I am glad it weighs a ton. Sitting at the bench I can only take about 15 rounds. If I am standing I can go through 20 to 25 rounds while shooting the 223 between groups. Below...
