    Terrible being a southpaw

    I’m also a southpaw and my first left-handed rifle was a weatherby markV in 7WM back in 1986. The gun shop had two other left-handed rifles in a Remington 700 BDL 7RM and a 30-06 savage. The Weatherby was a great shooter but I had to rebarrel it about 14 years later. I still have it but...

    Best long range 6.5mm/.264 caliber for hunting deer sized animals

    264 mag using 140gr Berger’s (barely under 3200fps) with a Krieger barrel 1:8.5 twist. Last 2-shot group at 500yds was 1”. Deer usually drop immediately.

    Do you name your rifles?

    This one my gunsmith stamped on the barrel D.O.A. meaning dead on arrival. It's my Krieger barreled, McMillan stock, 264 mag. It's also been a good one.

    Do you name your rifles?

    I named my Weatherby Mark V, with a Krieger barrel, in 7 STW the "Legion of Doom". When I had a gunsmith rebarrel it he stamped that name of the side of the barrel. It's lived up to it's name.

    New barrel time ?

    I’d say the 375 could definitely take on anything anywhere.

    New barrel time ?

    Same here. My 7STW and 264 mag work well for my current hunting areas. If I hunted an area were I had potential shots over 800yds I might invest in a fast 338.

    New barrel time ?

    How about a 338 mag or lapua to extend your range if needed?

    New barrel time ?

    Best I remember the smallest group ever shot, world record, was with a Krieger. My last 3-shot group at 500yds was 1” with my 264 mag, Krieger #8 contour 1:8.5 twist,140g Berger hybrids, McMillan HTG stock. Scope on 22x.

    Diet

    if lifting weights, consume 0.8g of protein per pound of bodyweight and 0.5g of carbs per pound of bodyweight to stay lean. If you're not satisfied with your bodyfat percentage, should be less than 15%, drop the carb intake to 0.3g per pound of bodyweight. I'm still the same pants/waist size...

    Why would you not sight in at 100 yards?

    I can use my 3rd mil-dot below center for my longest shot on that high-line stand. It’s quick and accurate. No guessing. My trigger is set at 2.2 lbs.

    Why would you not sight in at 100 yards?

    If I'm lucky I'll have time to use the range finder on longer shots....greater than 300yds.

    Why would you not sight in at 100 yards?

    On this deer stand, the high-line is only about 20yds or so wide. Shots can range from 50yds - 650yds and they're usually always walking. By the time you see one they're half way across and you only have time to aim and squeeze. No time for dialing in this situation. Electrical poles are...
