  1. 270 Winchester white tail/ hog bullet

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Just recently bought a Browning BAR MK3 in 270 Winchester, and absolutely love the rifle. Accurate and the semi auto action seems to eat up a lot of recoil. I've tried 130gr and 140gr bullets so far and got great accuracy from both. For hog hunting I've picked up a few boxes of 130gr partitions...
  2. New to guns and new to this forum! I need advice

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I'd like to become a first time gun owner. I want a rifle on the less expensive side, but good quality and can take down a deer with accuracy. I've shot guns before but I really don't know much about brands, caliber, and ammunition. Any suggestions? It would be much appreciated!
  3. 357 4" 686 h110 158gr FP/XTP

    Getting setup to start loading for my 686p, and I picked up a few boxes of the 158gr FP/XTP for an upcoming hog hunt. This will be my first time using the 357 on a hunt and I will be in a tree stand hunting over corn in pine forest. I doubt my shot will be over 35 yards, but I'm wondering if an...
  4. 25-06

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    The 25-06 doesn't seem to get mentioned much, but it really is a fine cartridge that is in my opinion about as good as it gets for varmints to medium size game. The round came before the 270 Win as a wild cat cartridge, and later was adopted and marketed by Remington at the time when slower...
  5. Great utility Rifle! Mossberg MVP Predator- LOVE IT

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I hate to sell guns, but I got the bug for a new rifle as we often do. I wanted a working gun for out at the ranch. I was carrying a savage heavy barrel .223 that is a great shooting gun. But it was a bit much to tote. I sold a savage .17 HMR and a small pocket pistol to raise the $ for the...

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hey everybody, I am new to this forum and am looking into getting my own first deer rifle. I have shot many calibers, and when hunting before I have had to free load and borrow either a .243 rifle or a .444 marlin from a friend.

  11. 460S&W Rifle

    Handgun Cartridges
    Indiana just legalized the 460S&W for use in a rifle for deer. I was wanting to get a 26" ported barrel for my Encore but the custom shop is closed and has no date to reopen. Will I be losing much performance by settling for a 20" barrel with no porting? Any info on this setup would be great...
