Posted in thread: My new tackdriver Rifle/Lyman Deerstalker on 08-05-2008 at 05:43 PM
I owned a Lyman deerstalker carbine at one time myself and as I recall, it was not only
accurate with round balls, but several conicals and some sabots. It has to be a BEST BUT in the

For my money, it is one more thing to go wrong. I believe, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".I
like the 209 primers, they go bang every time. Dan

IF your main reason for buying the rifle is to hunt whitetails, the .270 WSM is a superb long
range whitetail rig. For that matter, so is the .270 Winchester as made famous by Jack O'Conner

Posted in thread: Opinions needed on the 7mm Rem Mag on 04-11-2008 at 06:24 PM
I agree with other posts. It is a great caliber, that shoots slightly flatter than the 30-06
and hits a little harder (160 grain 7MM (vs.) 165 grain 30-06). Recoil is similar. The 30-06
surpasses it i...

For the money, the Bushnell 3X9X40 Elite 3200 with rainguard is a great buy. It is NOT fully

At about age 7 as I recall, I got a Mossberg, bolt action clip fed .22 and I think it was a
340K Rock Chucker or something similar to that. Killed a few woodchucks, crows etc. as a kid
with it. Back t...
