    Rut winding down?

    Going strong in the top of the White Tanks. Saw 8 different bucks today, all with does. Watched a big boy at 1000+ w. 10 does, dogging one hard, and chasing off a smaller buck. Had a dumb one at 40 yards, just hanging with the does.

    Lazzeroni 7.82 warbird

    Lazzeroni 7.82 Warbird is a beast of a cartridge. Somewhere in the .30-378Weatherby/.300RUM plus area. 180 @ 3500fps. Brass is proprietary, and expensive. So are dies. Loaded ammo is outrageous ($140/20 rounds) and very hard to get other than directly from Lazzeroni. Barrel life is very limited as with any huge capacity overbore magnum. I would think 800-1000 rounds MAX. I know Lazz made some of their 7.82 Patriots on Savage actions. They have their own actions for current rifles. Not sure if any early rifles were made on R700 actions.
  4. I have never used it. So no first hand knowledge of it.
  5. WMR 8 (Winchester Magnum Rifle-8#) Between RL19 & RL22 or H4831 & H1000. Use a magnum primer with ball powder. I bet you could sell it for more than you paid for it. Discontinued powders in sealed cans can be valuable to the right person. http://stevespages.com/308_7.html

    Youth Rifle Recommendations for Big Game

    To be honest, I would buy him something like a Savage Axis, Ruger American, Etc. in 6.5 Creedmoor (as much as I hate saying it). Recoil will be manageable, and ammo (or reloading) is fairly cheap. Then, have him shoot....a lot. Practice on shooting form, and stretch him out to 500+. A 6.5 is enough for elk. But keep the distances realistic. 6.5 is about as perfect as you can get for deer-size and down. When he is fully (or almost) grown, THEN buy (or build) him a nice rifle he can use for the rest of his life. You won't have to skimp of cartridge choices then.

    Scope

    If trades are welcome, I have a half box of tissues, some used chewing gum, and a rusty bottle cap I would consider letting go of.

    Which scope?

    The SCR is a great reticle. .2 MIL subtensions are fantastic for accurate wind holds. But, for $1500, I would look at a used Steiner T5Xi upgrade over the Burris XTRII. 5-25×56 or even the 3-15×50. Unless you plan on shooting tiny targets at 1500, a 3-15 is plenty. I was shooting out to 1558 with some 3-15 & 3.5-18x scopes this weekend and was not underpowered. Especially for a hunting rifle. If you want to stick with FFP, do so. All I shoot is FFP. But that leaves out a lot of suggestions here. Look around on LRH & Snipershide for some amazing used optics in your price range. You can find a LOT of better scopes in your price range that way. I have purchased 6 or 7 used scopes with zero issues for about 55-75% of their new prices.

    Question about temperature affecting the shot

    210 HVLD @ 2960fps, 4500'AMSL (25.37 BARO) From 30° to 70° variation, without powder velocity change, you will only see 3.1" difference in drop at 800 yards. 7" difference at 1000 yards. So, by going with a middle temp, like 50°, you cut your error in half. Meaning 1.5" @ 800 yards, or 3.5" @ 1000 yards. 800 yards is still "minute of deer", hold center of body and squeeze. 1.5" low at first light, 1.5" high at midday. 30° 70°
