    Talk to me about .243 Winchester

    My buddy has excellent results with the 87 gr vmax on top of Varget. Very accurate and great killing performance. I’ve had great luck with 100gr hornady interlock on top of h4831

    FN Mauser 98

    You could always just leave the stainless barrel silver. Wilson makes great barrels. I like Shilen and x-caliber as well.

    Successful Hog Hunt!!

    I will let you know how it turned out! I labeled my boar differently than his sow so that I can tell from each.

    Successful Hog Hunt!!

    My dad and I have been blessed and have shot a hog each. I shot mine with my 7mm Remington Magnum using a 140gr Federal Fusion over H4831sc and a CCI 250 and he shot his with his 6.5 Grendel using factory Hornady Black ammo.

    What does your sheep gun weigh?

    I lost 40 pounds over about 9 months and other than my knees don’t hurt like they used to, I can’t really tell any difference. But, I definitely tell when I carry my 12 1/2 pound 7 mag vs the sub 8 pound 7mm-08🤣🤣

    Thompson Center Barrels

    I’m curious if anyone knows if the barrels on Thompson Center Venture and Compass are button rifled or hammer forged? I called and asked but they wouldn’t tell me. Only thing that they said was that they were in a machine. I looked on the search bar but I didn’t find anything about that.

    7mm or 30 cal? Just for curiosity’s sake

    I love the 7mm, I have a 7mm Remington Magnum, 7mm Mauser, 7mm-08, and I used to have a 7mm SAUM. The only 30 I have is a 308. I also have 2 270’s!!

    Hogs are still only in a few select spots here in the panhandle. I’m waiting for them to invade though!
