    Need a rimfire 3P gunsmith

    Thanks for the advice J.E. Custom. I have found two smiths who are well known for building great BR rimfire guns and are willing to take on my project. I have set the wheels in motion for both of them. I am having each one build a rifle on the Anschutz 54 action. In the end, we will see which...

    Best LIGHTWEIGHT rain gear/coat???

    Hey Randy, Not accusing you of dissing goretex. I have had both good and bad luck with goretex products as well. A few years back at an elk camp I hunt at and guide at in New Mexico we had a couple of goretex guys who came and hunted with us a few times. One was one of their "scientists"...

    Lowering "RECOIL" for hunting & Shooting

    You have mentioned that you are a big guy and weight is not that much of a factor, just recoil. A heavy gun will certainly have less felt recoil and will also help you shoot better. (easier to hold steady...... with a rest or bipod that is). My 14 year old daughter has a 338 Lapua that weighs in...

    Best LIGHTWEIGHT rain gear/coat???

    I have never had any Froggs Toggs, so can't comment personally. I have heard others say they work well. As for PVC (plastic) rain gear....... I have had that, along with various types of plastic coated fabrics. Yes, the stuff is waterproof. It will keep water out, but also keeps moisture in...

    Best LIGHTWEIGHT rain gear/coat???

    Sita gear is good stuff. There is a wide range of quality with gortex. Not the gortex itself but the way the garment is made. I have a Simms goretex wader jacket and waders. They WILL keep you dry! Simms is a good way to go, but not available in camo. They only make fishing gear.

    700 yard New Mexico mulie

    Mitch, I use Applied Ballistics, by Brian Litz and also BulletFlight. I like them both and kind of go back and forth but Applied Ballistics seems to be the one I end up using when the chips are down. I am using a Droid RAZR, I think both are available on Iphone. Most of the ballistic apps...

    700 yard New Mexico mulie

    A couple of weeks or so ago I took my 14 year old daughter on a cow elk and mule deer hunt. We hunted a private ranch near Truth or Consequences in the Gila. I have been hunting and guiding on this ranch for over 10 years. A buddy from TN was also with us and had a cow and deer tag as well...

    ELR? Elk

    Whitesheep, Yes, Bravo 4 is the real deal. He is a good friend, and a great shot. If he says he shot an elk at whatever yards you can take it to the bank!! Good shooting buddy, congrats and thanks for telling the story!!

    Applied Ballistics, as well as BulletFlight and Shooter apps are all available at the google play store. I have all three loaded on my Droid. Any one will do both spin drift and coriolis.
