    Want To Buy Donor Ruger No. 1

    If you get one with a good trigger they can be something. I used to have the bug bad. The only one I have left is a black pad 300Wby. It is a solid 600 yard gun and it is beautiful. It is a nice weather gun though like most. When it's gonna be a tough hunt or the weather is crap I grab a...

    One “Do it All Cartridge” - All of NA

    Yep, just a different class of animal. A punch from Ray Leonard would really hurt, a punch from George Forman may kill you. You punch Ray Leonard it might smart, you punch George Forman he asks who left the window open, he felt a draft.

    How fast did weapons and ammo technology really advance and when did it happen?

    How fast did weapons and ammo technology really advance and when did it happen?

    Anyone using light monos in a 300 RUM?

    You be careful on that Cow Pasture river. Those land owners and their low-water bridges are not bashful about pointing a gun at you. Looks like you found a piece of heaven.
