    Shot before

    A kid I knew when I was young killed his first javelina with a 22 mag.

    Favorite Elk Bullet? Average shot distance in AZ?

    I wont talk bad about Berger bullets, but shot placement is key. I have killed 2 cow elk with Bergers, and watched 2 others go down from them too. None of them have exited, but most were smaller calibers. 257 weatherby and 6.5x55. I will say I would not shoulder shoot elk with Bergers, and I have started looking at other bullets for elk, especially if I get a bull tag. I have been looking towards Barnes TTSX, and I plan to try some Hammers.
  3. I need a windshield put in a 2007 Honda accord. Anyone here do auto glass?
  4. Confirmed. I am sticking with 257 weatherby. I could give up on my only quarter bore.

    OMR Barrels?

    Since nobody knows anything about this company I decided to bite the bullet and be your test Guinea pig. I ordered a 257 weatherby carbon wrapped barrel from them yesterday. 1:8 twist with 26" length. In 6 to 8 weeks I should have a barrel hopefully...

    7E Late Season Bull Elk Hunting

    7E is tough. Game and fish over hunted the unit on purpose after the peaks fire and really brought down the elk numbers. They have started to reduce the number of permits in 7E, but it is going to take awhile for populations to recover. The unit holds elk, and a decent elk can be had if you do your homework and get lucky. Weather plays a huge roll in where the elk will be as well as water. If we have a good monsoon water will be easy. If it stays warm late you could find elk all the way from the peaks to any of the unit borders. If it gets cold and snowy they will probably drop out into the more open areas to get lower and stay warmer.
  7. My dad had a stainless action version of this gun, and it was a shooter. It wasn't twisted fast enough for heavy bullets, but the 55gr were lasers and the gun was accurate as heck.

    Savage Upgrade Advice

    https://omrifles.com/collections/savage-prefits/products/7mm-rem-mag-savage-prefit?variant=30578257657902 Another prefit option. I am about to order a Howa prefit for my 257 weatherby mag from this place. Not alot of info online as they seem pretty new, but I am going to take a shot and see.

    A Garand Javelina Hunt

    I have taken my dads Garand on hunting trips before as a backup rifle for nasty weather or close quarters areas. I have not actually taken an animal with it though. Congratulations to your son. That is awesome.
  10. I had the high timber on an overcast day problem once in 19a when i was about 20. We left camp in the sun and hiked out. The clouds moved in and we got spun around. My hunting buddy and I started to get concerned. We stopped and calmed down and finally figured out a course of action and got back to camp. I have not left camp without a compass since.

    Upgrade scope from Vortex Viper HS LR

    What is your Budget?
  13. Those Burris are first focal plan. The leupold will be an good enough scope to get you by, but doesn't sound like it offers the features you want. I dont know if the VX1 have the click adjustments or are friction adjustment on the knobs. I hate the friction type. I want a positive click personally.
  14. https://www.sportoptics.com/burris-veracity-scopes/burris-veracity-3-15x50-fullfield-e1-200637-pkg.aspx 2 scopes for a good price. Sell the second scope for $150 and you are in your budget https://www.sportoptics.com/burris-veracity-scopes/burris-vaeracity-2-10x42-200621.aspx There are other good Nikon, Leupold, etc available too.
