    Scope and hunting ammo for 460 S&W?

    I just acquired the 10.5" 460 VXR. Mounted a Leupold 2.5-8x. Will be testing several loads including Hornady Handgun Hunter ammo, FTX, and a couple of Federal Premium offerings with Barnes and Swift A-Frames. Plan on taking this rig to Alaska in June for black bear. Good luck with your 460.

    Nosler m48

    dogbuster0006, I've been shooting the Nosler pistol since it was introduced. Actually I was working on a proto-type before introduction. They are very accurate rigs. I've got three now - and many of my friends and family have bought one. No complaints from any of them and they all are...

    375/06 help

    Several years ago I took a big brown bear with the 375/06 JDJ. The bear squared an honest 9' 10" with a skull measurement of 27 5/16. I was using a load recommended by JD with Hornady's 270 gr. Spire Point. Shot was 82 yards and this cartridge rocked him. Good luck with yours.

    Freedom arms vs BFR on accuracy 454 casull

    I have owned and shot both revolvers in .44 Mag. For a pure hunting gun, both will suffice. Comparing a FA with a BFR is like comparing apples to grapes - not a fair comparison. You seem to be focused on accuracy (and who isn't) There is a reason FA revolvers did so well in silhouette...

    Thinking of a new build and need advice on caliber

    I've enjoyed success in the field with a 15 inch Encore barrel in 338 Fed. Federal Premium ammo provides a factory load with Nosler's 180 gr. AB. Velocity was 2516 -- and I wouldn't use anything less than a 15 inch barrel. The 180 gr. Nolser AB works well and I've taken Shiras moose, boar, a...

    Nosler Model 48 NCH

    I changed the AR grip (Hogue) that came with the gun to a Royal Arms grip. It's a target/tactical type grip with more of a vertical angle. Really like it.

    Nosler Model 48 NCH Nolser has just introduced their new single-shot, bolt-action handgun. I have been shooting this handgun for some time now -- in both 22 Nosler and 6.5 Creedmoor. The handgun is extremely accurate and will be a welcome addition to the handgun hunting...

    Day One Camouflage, Window Camo pattern

    Petro712, I bought two pair of their pants many years ago - in different patterns. I've worn these pants on countless hunting trips and they are still in good shape. Patterns are a matter of personal preference but I can say my experience with their pants has been great.
