I had a case of Federal Gold Medal Match for use in competitions and this was some left from that case. I use case lot Match Ammo for matches as it's too much reloading to keep up for match shooting. I'm about to pick up another 2 cases, one of Federal and one of Black Hills.
Nice bears Dave. Glad I don't have to drive that far for a bear, but you scored I struck out this time.
I almost had a shot at one 620yds away but as I was setting up from below I noticed two hunters about 300yds below the bear to the right. I rode up around the corner to get a clearer view and two young girls were sitting on their wheelers tellin the guys up there wich way to go with radios. They knew it wasn't leagal, but just kept on talkin anyway. The bear moved into a thick draw and dissapeared from sight. We could have took him then but didn't, they never did find him after that. I got my eye on a big brown that's in my moose hunting area for this fall.
7! SEVEN! Bear ain't as small as you thought, is it Dave! They just wake up a little skinny in the spring, thats all!
Have the same scope on a 300 mag. If you don't mind me askin, how much for 'em? (the rings) How do they compare to Leupold's tactical rings?
