Hunting Rifles
22 minutes ago
For quite awhile non tactical hunting rifles were easy to obtain and not in extreme demand. But currently theres absoluteky nothing for sale, it seems little in the way of new production and ever its all expensive. Id like to know why theres such a demand on our "Fudd" rifles that were once everywhere and much more available. Why are hunting rifles suddenly in demand unlike 5-10 yrs ago?

Just wondering. Ive been trying to find some new left hand bolt guns but thats like finding a new element that doesnt yet exist. It just seems shocking to me that sporting hunting rifles are so hard to come by....

Had one almost striped on bob hall pier back in 02, probably giant greater hammer. I was using a 35lb jack for bait. 18/0 hooks straightened out. Wish I still had the reel and rod, but those 16/0 bring good money from collectors. reels nowadays have much better drags.

Had a 16/0 myself back in the day. Just wasn't running i to enough fish big enough to keep bull-dogging that big a rig.

I worked some loads for my Model Seven 300 SAUM (22" barrel) in March using some blem 150 gr. Nosler E-Tips and Superformance. I interpolated data from the 300 WSM, which has listed data w/ Superformance. Using REM brass & Fed215 primers, I went as high as 72.5 gr., reaching 3286 fps but had a little too much bolt stiff lift & primer flattening (the temp was ~75-80*F). I backed off 1.5 gr. to 71.0 gr. @ 3213 fps. My COAL was 2.800" (max for the magazine) which still gives me a 0.110" jump in this long leade chamber (factory). I shot this on a recent cooler day (upper 40's) and got 3156 fps from a cold barrel & ammo. Superformance seems to give the highest velocities with the midrange bullets weights compared to other powders for this cartridge, so I'm happy with it. And Hornady says that it is reasonably temperature stable. Not having any luck w/ the E-Tips accuracy wise though; 2-2.5+" three shot groups @ 100 yd. as good as it gets. I plan on switching to Barnes TTSX in the 130 & 150 gr. when I can find them! I haven't found this Model 7 (or another in 260Rem) to be capable of MOA accuracy; rather 1.5-2+" three shot groups @ 100 yd. frown
I've also used the Barnes 175 gr. LRX w/ 61.0 gr. of Reloader 17, Fed 215, COAL 2.80", reaching ~2964 fps. & ~1.75" 3 shot 100 yd. groups.
Hope this helps! -Mark & Belle...

Have long enjoyed the annual return of the violet-green and barn swallows. Last year, the English sparrows took over all of their historic nests. Tacked some screen over the nest holes last fall until after the VG swallows showed up a couple weeks ago but those persistent sparrows low-holed them. After a couple days of sparrow population control with my faithful old FWB 124D saddled with an SWFA 10X, the VG's are now moved back into their rightful places. Barn swallows shouldn't have any problems either when they arrive soon.

Use to only perforate starlings but sparrows are now on the same list.......

Food source is probably the difference, Alaska's Coastal bears are fat and full of the endless supply of spawning Salmon while Montana's bears spend their days scratching for huckleberries in attempt to get their bellies full.

Whatever the true reason be, Montana's Grizzlies just seem to have a bad attitude all the time.

This aligns with my experience. I, along with several biologists I have talked to have always guessed it was the amount of food (or lack thereof), but for whatever reason MT/WY/ID grizzlies and I presume those in southern interior Canada are way more aggressive than coastal brown bears, and even interior Alaska grizzlies.

I wouldn't go kick a coastal bear in the nuts or anything, but they're not in the same league as the lower 48 mountain bears when it comes to aggressiveness....

No , it doesn’t fit the ‘narrative’. 🤔

Don’t let facts get in the way, no use changing direction now 😂

Evidence out of UK and Israel indicate that without the 2nd shot in the time frame recommended ( 21 days for Pfizer , 28 for Moderna) ‘benefits’ drop of pretty steadily and quickly.

In the case of cancer patients the results were very consistent ( lack of immunity I would hassard a guess)

So even if the vaccines work, they DON’T the way Canada is disbursing them ( except North of 60). ‘Follow the science ‘ we are told ....
