What Gun Are You Going To Use?
« on: November 01, 2011, 09:05:19 AM »
With a lot of the gun seasons for deer getting ready to start (and already started), what kind of gun are you planning on using?  :?
 
I try to use a different one each year just to spread things around a little and get a little variety in things.  Got out my "list" last night looking for a different caliber than what I've already used, and preferably with a scope.  Saw a Marlin 1894 lever action in .45 Colt with a Leupold Alaskan scope on it that caught my eye.  :)   Got to digging around in the safe and found it and put it in the front.  I've got some .45 Colt ammo, but I'm going to go today to get some more.  I looked through the scope and it looked like the crosshairs were off a little, so I'm going to loosen the screws up and get it straight.  We'll have to see how it shoots in the next day or two.  O0
 
So what about the rest of you?  What are you planning on taking?  A tried & true meat getter or something else you've acquired recently?

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

I've killed more deer than I care to count with my .270.  O0   A girl that I work with, her husband is just getting into hunting, so I offered my Savage .270 to him to use if he wanted to.

I will be using Ole reliable......... Ruger M77 in .308.   Still haven't finished building my .270 from last year.  I will also be carrying my Marlin .44mag with open sights.

My big push this year is to start using cast bullets, my own or commercial for the 45-70 Govt.
I've got one set up for local conditions where ranges start at 20 yards and won't get beyond 75.

The other 45-70 is destined to go to Maine and that one is still a pita >:( to get a decent load with cast bullets that are above plinker level.

That rifle has a jacketed bullet load that will rock your world when you touch it off. :shock:

Standby for this year is Rem 742 in 30-06
