Frank,

What's the story on the mule deer? Looks like a Mexico buck



Actually the 3 deer you see all came from Sonora ol' Mexico- the 2 mule deer and the Coues on the bottom. The 2 shown I shot back to back with one of my Weaver Pre 64 28" & 26". I shot a third one the following year (same rifle)- a nice 7 x 5.

18.5". I've only shot a box through it but it does pretty good. Going to work up some loads with a faster burning powder in order to try to get more complete ignition.

Kinda funny story on this one. A friend bought it at a gunshow I was working a few years ago. Brought it over and was so excited about it. I asked him,"why would you want that gaudy thing?" After handling it a few times, I couldnt believe how well it fit me, and the lightness of it! Long story short, its mine now. Its a 70 fw in 270, 1954. Mounted a Leupold compact 3x9 on. Have not shot it yet, but I think / hope it will shoot fine!

A few weeks ago, I asked for help from the Campfire members to find a good Model 70 in 300 H&H. I advertised in the classified as a WTB.

Well, I had a few offers from the members who owned 300 H&Hs, but didn't see anything that that really excited me.

I had several members refer me to Perry County Fireams in Central PA, and I gave them a call. They actually had several to pick from and I chose a 1955 with a raised comb and in 95 to 97% condition.

I also had a member offer a couple of boxes period W-W 180 gr Silvertip Ammo that I accepted.

Thanks to all that contributed.

Have a look.
