    Deer Season Tomorrow!

    Yes, Fraizer Park is southern A zone. I'm back and we spent the day in Santa Barbarba Canyon. The temps were up there, in the 90's at least. Didn't see any bucks, but I scared up a moderate size doe coming out along a river bed. She came up crossed the road and I watched her climb the hill...

    Deer Season Tomorrow!

    Hey guys, I haven't posted in quite a while, but I wanted to share my excitement that my season for rifle opens to tomorrow. The truck is packed, I'm here at work taking care of last minute details and I'll be on the road by 11:00. So, if there are any California hunters out there, I'm heading...

    Hunting w/ bthp MatchKing

    There was a previous post on the 175gn that I tried to get in on, but missed. I have been using the 168gn bthp match, but have considered going to the GameKing in 165gn btsp. I'd prefer to stay with the MatchKing. Is it a good bullet to hunt with. Federal recommends the softpoint over the hollow...

    175 Match King

    Guys, If I'm understanding you correctly, you're using the 175 BTHP SMK for game rather than a gameking in say a soft-point? Last season I was using the Factory Federal Gold Metal Match in 168 bthp. I actually switched to a Gameking, with Federals 165 btsp. The standard Vel. is only about...

    Long and short action?

    Well it looks as though nobody has opted to respond. The long and short of it is just that, the length of a bolt action rifles action or receiver assembly. Of course, the bolt coinsides with the length as well. Manufactures such as Winchester i.e. Repeating Arms and Remington for example...

    Jesse Jaymes here's your information

    Re: Jesse Jaymes here\'s your information Ric, It acts as a reactive type target which gives the shooter quicker notification of a hit. I like it specifically for the Mil-Dot training. Cut specific sizes as you stated, range and fire. Gives you the ability to range find, check your c-ups/...

    Jesse Jaymes here's your information

    Re: Jesse Jaymes here\'s your information Ric, I don't know what happened on your previous thread and I'm not here to take sides, but I think you have a great idea. I'm going to Home Depot today and cut some squares for this weekend and at least give it a shot, not pun intended. I've always...

    Leica 1200 and older Redfield 3x-9x Accurange scope parallax

    Jon, Yes I believe the scope should not be giving you that kind of varition if it was truly set for parallax at 100 yds. I pulled some info from another site that might help. Try this! Read this, it might explain the differences: This from Benchrest board. Those who...

    Leica 1200 and older Redfield 3x-9x Accurange scope parallax

    Jon, Although "Stock Lock" is very important, personally I'd be asking for their quality standards? What is their percentage of error? 3" to 4" at 100yds is subjective, one may say it's ok, but another may say different. It still seems to be a large error. How are these tests performed at the...

    Need a little knowledgeable Advice

    I don't believe that this is the same as Roys, but I just sent a stock back to be replaced because it was curved starting at the receiver back to the Buttplate/ recoil pad. Basically the stock was not a straight line or completely inline with the bore. Steve [ 11-09-2004: Message edited by...

    Survey on Scopes!!!

    Jerry, I have the 20X Tasco SS and a side by side comparison to a MK4 LR/T 6.5x20 there's a diff., but for the money and the application, the SS was a great deal. Steve

    Survey on Scopes!!!

    Jerry, I was just razzing Dave a bit. I got a kick out of the fact he put the Springfields below the toilet paper roll. I do have a couple HAKKO makes in my inventory, i.e. SA and a Hawke, but they are what they are. I mostly use the Leupold MK4s 6.5x20-50 LR/T. However, I'm looking into...

    Survey on Scopes!!!

    Hey Dave, I take it, you don't care for SpringField Armory, i.e. HAKKO made in Japan. I do have one mounted on a M1A and have not had any problems, but I don't shoot it nearly as often as the Leupolds. You're not the first person that I've heard say that thet're not very good. So, I'll...
