    RL 26 8 lbs unopened

    I have a new 8 pounder that I won't be needing. Got it from Bruno's a while back and have $350 into it. East Valley Chandler Gilbert area

    Access to chronograph?

    What he said... except I don't recommend them past 500. But, that will get close enough on most animals.

    CW Long Range Meet Up: January 30, 2021

    Was thinking about maybe an early May date for some shooting up north where it will be cooler. If not then, I am hoping for about the third week in August or thereabouts. September looks to be busy for me. A buddy drew an antelope tag and I will be hunting bear in CO or sitting blinds if we can still OTC archery for deer. You higher elevation guys, when do the fire bans hit your spots? When is it over? What dates do you think would work?

    ISO bow for a buddy

    I have a PSE, with whisper biscuit and new slider pin sight. 60 pound draw, easy adjustable draw length. Good strings. Not 70 pounds, so lemme know if he will consider it. PM me a number to text him.

    6mm Remington deer bullet

    Interesting, I hear ELDx failure stories too. Just shows to run what you trust.

    6mm Remington deer bullet

    I've heard reports of this. Seems like if Berger's fail, that's what happens. I know guys watch the tips of the bullets to make sure they are not deformed or meplat is clogged. Its odd, because I know guys who swear by the 6.5 OTM bullets, and they have the thicker target jackets. With my 7mm 180 vld, I have gotten expansion every time. But, you have me thinking, I may try Tipped SMK for smaller calibers because expansion starts sooner on small game with the tip. I can't bring myself to shoot the ELDX. I want the full glorious detonation and carnage the thin jacketed match bullets leave behind. I might shoot the ELDM if the tipped SMK don't shoot.

    Smart- tactical watch

    Run Garmin 701 on your wrist. Garnim Fenix has an app available called TruFlight that is a ballistic calculator. Has a simple interface for one rifle. It lined up with my Applied Ballistics solution and only was different by rounding, like .1 mil at times. Garmin released a watch with Applied Ballistics in it. It talks with Kestrel and a few LRF ad well. If I had $1200, I would buy one.

    Thanks, I will keep that in mind to watch for. Ya think you just did not get expansion soon enough on smaller game?

    Differerent strokes for different folks. With Berger, gotta pick your shot placement for sure. That is why its a double lung behind the shoulder for me. Punching a fist size hole is a good thing when it is vitals. A bonded bullet is better for shoulder shots. As far as ruining meat, I would rather have it on the ground with no tracking than rely on a blood trail. If I ruin meat on an elk it's cause I made a bad shot. Yeah, a 7 mag is way more than needed for coues. A smaller bullet like a 6mm is just fine. I think recurveman was having a different problem, cause it sounds like animals ran off with smaller Bergers.

    What Bergers were you shooting? Curious about your experience. I do understand tipped Nosler and the Tipped Sierra Match King expand quicker on penetration, typically sooner than Berger.
