  1. Competition Shooting
    Hey guys, Im currently in the market for a new rifle in 6.5 creedmoor. The rifle would mostly be used for hunting but maybe long range target shooting occasionally. Im looking at a bergara ridge SP with the 18" barrel. I chose this becuase the 18" barrel would be a dream to have for the deer...
  2. Hunting Forum
    I've always been very interested in hunting, but rarely had the opportunities until now that I'm an adult. Some of y'all may have seen me talking about it over on the semi-auto forum, big thanks to everyone cause I really appreciate all the advice and suggestions. I'm getting ready, probably...
  3. Hunting Forum
    now this is not about a caliber war! this is about telling what is the best rifle and caliber for the areas you deer hunt in. and what is best for one person given their area, may not be the best choice for another person given their circumstances. for my area, for the most part, a good lever...

    I´ve got about an extra $300 so I´m thinking about picking up a .243 (or something like that) to go deer hunting with. Since I´m pretty much totally ignorant as far as guns go (the only guns I´ve even owned were a .22 and a 20 guage for squirrel hunting) I figured maybe someone could give me...

    I need help. There is a big, fat, smart red squirrel (about the size of a small cat) living in the walls of my house and I can't seem to get rid of it. When I first found the hole, I waited until the squirrel left and I sealed the hole with a steel plate and wood screws. Then, when I come home...

  10. Auto & Semi-Auto Discussion
    Hello all, I am a new owner of a DPMS LR-308 and so far I am very happy with it. I am of the mindset that any firearm I own must serve multiple purposes so a rifle chambered with such a good round like the 308 seemed like a great choice. Now I would have assumed that such common platform like...
