well nothing wrong with the 06 I just don't wanna lob bullets at the ranges I anticipate shooting and Im gonna shoot atleast a 200 grn pill if not heavier and one of the mags I've narrowed it down to wil push a 200 grn pill faster and flaterMy 30-06 Ackley improved pushed 180 gr bullet at about 2950fps. Who needs more than that?
This is a good point, and why I feel the 300 win with a 215 works so well for me. I can, and do, take elk to 1000 probably farther and have taken antelope to close to 1300 yards. If I plan to go much farther than that it is time to get out the 338.If you want to go faster and heavier, you should be shooting a .338.
Ok since I know nothing about brakes and I really don't like the way they look wich one do I get how about the gentry only one I looked up or what about the brakes that are made on the barrel not screwed onDo yourself a big favor and put a good brake on it before you even get started.
Read the last few pages on the "Muzzle Brake on a 300wm" thread and you'll understand why.
Even my 7mm STW's and 300 Rum are sheer pleasure to shoot because they have good muzzle breaks on them.
Out of all the things you can do to help your actual shooting in the field to me the muzzle brake is probably number one since it will allow you to see your impacts at any range with the above choices of calibers. That will make you a better rifleman because you aren't guessing and it will improve your percentages on follow ups dramatically because you can see instantly whether or not you missed and if you did what you need to do to correct instantly allowing you to put your follow up on target in ten seconds or less.
The latter can be extremely critical shooting in any kind of terrain that is not completely flat or if there is any sort of brush or trees that a missed or wounded animal can disappear into.
We have a number of sponsors to this site including Jim See and Kirby who make very nice, very effective muzzle brakes and this one here is my personal favorite. It's not even too rough on the ears if you have to make a quick shot and don't have time or forget to put on your "ears".
This one came on a 7mm STW I recently purchased and it's the best MB overall I've ever used. I like it well enough that I'm going to put it on five other rifles I own already.
Have a gunsmith thread the barrel and install a VIAS brake then you can take it of and have a thread cap and the vias while taking away a good amount of recoil also isn't as loud as some others.Ok since I know nothing about brakes and I really don't like the way they look wich one do I get how about the gentry only one I looked up or what about the brakes that are made on the barrel not screwed on
If it is not screwed to the barrel it is actually magnaporting and I would not recommend that.Ok since I know nothing about brakes and I really don't like the way they look wich one do I get how about the gentry only one I looked up or what about the brakes that are made on the barrel not screwed on
Dragman, we kinda know each other so I have to ask. Why that rude Vias brake? They are the worst brakes I ever crawled behind in my opinion. By the way the 300 win I bought from you was a tac driver well past 1000 yards with 210 Bergers. But I replaced that nasty dirt tossing radial brake.Have a gunsmith thread the barrel and install a VIAS brake then you can take it of and have a thread cap and the vias while taking away a good amount of recoil also isn't as loud as some others.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
