I doubt if a Banner scope will withstand the recoil of a .338 WM for long. I had a 2-7 Bushnell Trophy on my Ruger .300 WM at one time and it lasted only about 80 shots.

I'm not familiar with...

It's a possibility that the gun has an oversized chamber, specifically in the region of the case rim. The pressure during firing could be expanding the head to the point that the primer pockets are...

I like the look of a dark-stained linseed oil finish, such as found on many older rifles. I have found basic hardware store boiled linseed oil to work very well for a stained bare stock. I'm not much...

The 6.5 is a very good cartridge. Even if the conversion could be done safely, your friend wouldn't gain much, or anything, especially with the 6mm or .257 Roberts.

I don't have any personal experience at such long ranges, but the plastic tip on the TTSX's are supposed to ensure expansion even at long ranges, where the velocity has dropped off. In my opinion,...

So far I've only used the 300 gr. Shot 2 moose, 1 at about 75 yards and the other at about 125 yards. Both dropped in their tracks.

It's a Sako AV. Originally it wouldn't shoot worth a darn. I had the barrel replaced with a Shilen. Big improvement.

Because of the high velocity of the cartridge, you will do well with premium bullets if hunting large game, especially at closer ranges. Some good choices are Barnes TTSX, Swift A-Frame, Trophy...

Leupold scopes have around 4 inches of eye relief. Their 1-4, 1.5-5 and
1.75-6 models are widely used on hard-kicking, big bore rifles. They should also work well for your .444 Marlin. Personally I...

I generally favor cartridges that have a larger case capacity, so I can get the velocity level I want without running at maximum pressures. The .300 RUM can be loaded down to equal full power .300...

The .308 with 150 to 200 grain bullets will work well for deer and elk. Lighter bullets can be used for coyotes.

The .223 will work well for coyotes, and with the right bullet (Barnes TSX) can...

A .22 rimfire will make an excellent first rifle. There is virtually no recoil, ammo is cheap, and noise is minimal. Shoot a lot, while working on your sight picture and proper trigger control, and...

I think the .338 caliber is great for game like moose, elk and big bears. The recoil is not excessive and bullets are reasonably priced. Also the velocities of most .338 caliber cartridges provide...

I have a RCBS 505, which has worked well for the weighing of thousands of rounds of ammo. In my experience it an excellent scale for the money. It's very consistent.

I've never fired a 35 Whelen but I own a 338 RCM, which is the power equivalent to a 338-06. Each step up in bullet weight and power level will result in a corresponding increase in recoil. If you...

Since you don't want to increase the recoil level much, consider a non-magnum cartridge, that fires a larger, heavier bullet such as 338-06, 338 RCM (a magnum, but really only in name) or 35 Whelen....

A 7mm Rem Mag is a good choice, although 30-06, 308, 280, etc. are also fine. The most important thing is to shoot the rifle a lot to become familiar with it. This includes shooting from field...
