It sure looks like you are well covered for everything else, D!  O0 What are you planning to hunt with it?

I have one Mauser left, an 8mm but it is straight military. You want something with some more punch, looks like.

Firearms / Help me out here do I need a 8mm?
« Last post by D45/70 on August 18, 2019, 04:04:04 PM »
8mm Remington Magnum.
17,204,223,243/6mm, and 45/70

I have nothing in-between .

30 calibers, 270's, and the current hot shot 6.5's are boring to me for what ever reason.

I think I NEED a larger game caliber.

Boy and his wife have most every thing up to 458.

BUT no 8mm.

Humm sounds like I NEED to fill that hole.

What about a 8mm Remington Magnum?

I looked at brass and it is out of sight.

But it looks like 7mm mag or 375 H&H brass is more in line and not to hard to rework.

I have a 7mm mouser action in a stock,I could get for the asking and do a barrel. The more I reed the more I feel the need for a 8mm Remington Magnum.

Any real time experience or first hand knowledge?

Anything that can send a 220gr bullet out the end of a 24" barrel at over 3500 fps has my attention for sure.

 Finishing 2 weeks of vacation at home, honeydo's, a little knife work, and some cat fishing. How is the Waterbug coming along, D?


Exactly 2 weeks until hunting season opens. My .17 WSM swears squirrels are going to die, along with some rabbits and varmints.


I have some rifles that are in dire need of a range outing. I stll have that Mauser 8mm I have not shot since I got it as a gift last year.  :sad:

Deer Hunting / Granddaughter shoots again
« Last post by D45/70 on August 02, 2019, 07:20:13 PM »
I took Rudy , the deer target, out to our 100 yard mark and dead down wind, it's only 10 mph but If I can get it right I do.

I can't get her to shoot a 3 shot group yet 3 in a row is just to much. But we got two first set.



Second set.



We found a full can of Prego soup some dumb a$$ tried to shoot and left it. We set it on the ground at 75 yards and she shot one last shot.



Way easer to carry back now

 O0 Am very glad to hear you live in a pretty much clear area, D. It is not uncommon to see coyotes and foxes here without any hair, severe cases of mange.  :sad:
