  1. I think you'd like that set up. Check out the BCM RECCE 16 Precision Rifle. The barrel contour on the Precision Rifle is a little heavier (not much though) and it has a 1 in 8 twist instead of the 1 in 7 for the standard RECCE rifles. (The slightly slower twist could help with accuracy for the light 55gr bullets you want to use.) That rifle with a LPVO starting at true 1X up to maybe 6 or 8 along with an offset red dot could be really versatile for any where to "crap, there's a yote in my lap out to the maximum effective range of the .223. All BCMs are hard to come by nowadays though so it might be a bit of a wait.

    Ammo Increases Coming in April

    I was in Cabela's last weekend and the feller stocking the shelves said their ammo deliveries were getting bigger and bigger. Still, their supply was flying off the shelves but at least their deliveries were increasing. That's some progress.

    Burris Riflescope Delivery

    Hi Doug, I have a Burris XTR II 1-8 illuminated FFP scope that I bought from Camera Land and I love it. I think it's a great scope for the money. I was looking to buy another one and you are sold out as is every place else that I've looked. Has that scope been discontinued? If so, is there any speculation as to whether Burris will replace it with another FFP LPVO? Thank you. -Jimmer

    Arizona

    Great list! Very informative. Thanks for posting. Maybe time to add another "C", for computer chips or maybe circuit boards with all the companies making them in AZ?

    The virus

    What makes this country great is that we're each entitled to our own opinions. But we're not entitled to our own facts. So the stats I saw in the United States show about 105 deaths per day by motor vehicle accident while we've been averaging over 2,000 COVID deaths per day recently. Maybe I'm missing something though.

    SOLD - SLIK small ball tripod head - SBH-400AS -$20.00

    I think it's SPF. But you're 2nd in line. Will trade for complete BCM RECCE-16 MCMR Precision.
  10. SOLD. Thank you. This SLIK ball tripod head is new. I only opened it so I could take these stunning and somewhat provocative pictures. It retails for $49. It came with a SLIK tripod I bought from Outdoorsmans but I can't use it (hence the 60% off retail price). Buyer beware though. It's a small tripod head. It's like a tripod head for ants. It could be great for photography or maybe for a child with small binos. It will not hold your BTX 115s.

    What caliber should I buy?

    Fun stuff to think about so thanks for posting. It's interesting to see people's perspectives. Consider buying the latest edition (16th) of the book Cartridges of the World by Frank C. Barnes. It's really informative and has commentary on the application of many of the cartridges. There's technical data in there (which I don't understand) but it's also good overview and includes historical context. I like the introduction part of about the cartridge naming system. (Our American way of cartridge naming seems to be based on tradition, not logic.) And it's reference manual not a novel. You can hop from cartridge to cartridge to compare them. It's widely available (Amazon usually has them in stock). Here's a link with info about the book: https://www.gundigeststore.com/product/cartridges-of-the-world-16th-edition-a-complete-and-illustrated-reference-for-more-than-1500-cartridges/ I think you're on the right track. I like the .308 Win. and the 6.5 Creedmoor. I've seen both take large elk humanely at 400 yds. (The jokes about the 6.5 Creedmoor are based on it being new and young hunters adopting it. So people joke that it's a cartridge for "hillbilly hipsters.") The machining of today's rifles and the improvements in powders, bullets, and understanding of ballistics have improved accuracy and effectiveness for hunting applications. Maybe you can't "do more with less" but you can certainly do the same with less. I think it was the late Jeff Cooper who said "Very few problems that a man can't fix with $700 and a .30-06". (If I got that quote wrong or misattributed it, please correct me.) I love the .30-06 and appreciate it's place in history and the great cartridges that came from it. (the .308 is based on a .30-06 that was shortened and the .243 is basically a .308 necked down .243) but I can't imagine a scenario where I pull out the ol' aught six for a hunt again. May the modern saying could be "I don't see how an Arizona hunter could ever need more than $150,000 and a 6.5mm Creedmoor." : ) Let us know what you end up with and remember there is no "one to rule them all." You're going to end up with more rifles and calibers so you can select the perfect (or almost perfect) one for the specific application. Looking forward to your post about which optic to put on it!

    Elk Processor in Payson

    I've used Round Valley Processing (just south of Payson) for my son's boned out bull. It was an older bull but it came out great. The # I have for them (928) nine seven eight- 239zero. Good luck.

    Compilation of Arizona Trail Cam Footage

    Excellent video compilation. It's cool that it was all one camera in one spot. You captured the diversity of the area. It's why we all love Arizona! Thanks for posting.
