There was an older, grade 1, Browning BAR in 30-06, a Howa 1500 in 7mm-08 and I was using my 375/350. No animals were harmed during the hunt...

I rotate rifles during deer season. Last week I brought my Marlin 30AS in .30-30 and my buddy brought his 300 PRC because he's never shot anything with it yet. Didn't get anything and this coming week I'll be using the Lee-Enfield #4 Mk 1 with some handloads with a Sierra 180 gr. Pro-Hunter fueled by RL-15. I really appreciate the rear aperture (peep) sights on those things and where I plan on sitting I would never get a shot past about 75-100 yards. IIRC my buddy is bringing his 6.5 Creedmoor next time around.

We don't have a "camp" per se, just a farm on the edge of a lot of national forest.

Not a whole lot of guns, but I tend to go overboard and bring three every season.

There's a Rem Sportsman 78 in .30-06, a Rem 700 BDL .30-06, a Savage 110 .270 Winchester, a couple Marlin 336s in .30-30, a couple AR15s, and my three rifles I brought this year were a X-bolt in 6.5 PRC, a Tikka T3X SuperLite .308 Winchester, and a Ruger 77 Mark II in .308 Winchester. I think there were five or six deer killed.

This weekend: Jonathan Browning Mtn Rifle .54 cal. Marlin Mountie .22 and a Glock 43x. I know , the Glock isn’t a rifle, it just has delusions of grandeur.

Our micro-camp has seen only a Ruger 77 tang in 7x57 used by my son, a 7mm-08 Abolt Micro used by son n law and wife, and a pair of OptimaV2 CVAs used by my wife and me. So far 2 down by muzzleloader, 1 by 7-08, 3 by 7x57. 7-08 is yet to be locked away.

My dad-

1. Browning A-Bolt .270, B&L 3200 3-9x40 120gr SST


Me-

1. Weatherby Accu-guard .257wby, Zeiss 4.5-14x42, 100gr TTSX
2. Seekins PH2 6.5prc, Night Force SHV 3-10x 42, 147gr ELDM
3. Marlin 1895 ABL .45/70, Nikon Monarch 2-8x36, 300gr Hammer Down
4. Ruger SBH Hunter .45 colt, Nikon 2x eer 90gr NAB
5. Winchester M70 Extreme Weather 7wsm, Steiner 3-15x50 150gr ETip

Easy to tell who the rifle nut is.

My dad is a bird hunting shotgun lover. He owns exactly one centerfire rifle. He's that guy who shoots 3 shots to confirm his 1 inch high at 100 yds each year in October then shoots 1 or 2 deer at 77 yards each deer season. Recently had shoulder surgery so he asked me for a lighter recoiling 270 load. Hit the easy button and got some Hornady Lite loads. 120gr SST at 2675. Hardly any recoil in his ABolt. Dead deer.

Most of our guys hunt with some kind of bolt action. Remington 700 30-06, 270 and 280, Savage 110 30-06, Ruger 77 280, Savage 340 30-30, Remington 722 257 Roberts, Remington 760 30-06 and one family all uses Remington 742 30-06. So far, I've carried my Kimber Hunter 308, Browning X-Bolt 30-06 and Marlin 336 30-30. I'm really liking the Kimber. I have a few more in the safe to take out for a walk soon.

We used to have 1 12 gauge smoothbore 870 with Remington Sluggers, a Mossberg 695 rifles 12 gauge with sabots, and my H&R 12 gauge Trophy Slugster loaded with Federal Premium Barnes expanders. Now, the same 3 men carry 2 Ruger American Ranch Rifles in 350 Legend, and my left hand Savage Axis in 350 Legend. More accurate, less recoil, and still deadly on Whitetails.
