    I have an sig cross in 6.5 creedmoor it has a helix 6 18” carbon barrel 5/8x24 threaded and a vortex diamondback tactical 4-16x44 ffp moa on it weighs 8.5lbs roughly scoped 5 rd mag. I have it listed for 2k with everything but I’m negotiable if it helps get a kid out hunting. Has less than 100 rounds down the barrel.

    Thanks. Really wanted a .308 but this is very tempting 


  2. I took my boy down to the desert to help a couple of buddies on a javalina hunt. On the 5hr drive down all he could talk about was wanting to kill and eat a rabbit. As luck would have it mid morning Friday this guy changed shade trees on the ridge right by camp. A few shots later this sucker was on the camp stove getting cooked for lunch. Not my favorite but that lil guy was so proud it was amazing.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but  i think they're are both Sonoran and chihuahua sub species 

    The five recognized subspecies are American pronghorn (A.a.americana, Ord 1815), Oregon pronghorn (A.a.oregona, Bailey, 1932), Mexican pronghorn (A.a.mexicana, Merriam 1901), Sonoran pronghorn (A.a.sonoriensis, Goldman 1945), and peninsular pronghorn (A.a.peninsularis, Nelson 1912)

    Maybe Mexican?

    Do you know if the 30a lopes are the chihuahuan subspecies?

    I think you mean Sonoran? I don't think they are. I believe those are all west of I10 but I might be wrong. I do know that access can be tough on that hunt.

    This place has gotten as bad as FB with guys sharing wrong, bad, and even dangerous information. 😒

    Not even close! I posted a picture of a vacuum canister on a FB jeep page asking what it did. I had a ton of messages letting me know how stupid I was for asking a question. 99% of the guys that answered were 100% wrong. Lesson learned

    My $0.02 would be get a box of the federal hi brass top gun # 8 or 9 lead shot and open the crimp up and change out the lead for some #4 or 6 steel shot of the same weight.

    lve started doing that for lots of my 410 loads, It’s worked great…

    It is a pain in the rear no doubt but the only consistent option I’ve found, and you can also experiment with corn meal as a buffer, in my experience it’s worked well…

    good luck

    it might be easier to go this route and roll crimp


  7. Good luck finding some. I just went through this with my 9yo son. I ended up just buying him a 20ga semi auto. We haven't got to shoot at any ducks yet but there is a huge difference when shooting other small game. I can also get target loads for $9 a box instead of $30 a box for .410. He likes the 20ga over the .410 and handles the recoil just fine. Wish I could help with what you need I just never found anything other than TSS turkey loads and they were $10 per round. Maybe call around to some pawn shops and see if they have any older stuff on the shelf? The best deal I found was at the feed store in Williams but it was all lead shot.


  8. Just a heads up. I bought 100pcs of new Winchester Brass for my 270 wsm. After prepping and loading I found half of the cases would not chamber in my rifle. After a lot of back and forth with winchester I got it replaced only to find the same issue with the new brass.

    I always wanted an older Toyota, 4runner or pickup to hunt from.... Until I got a rzr. Only down fall is the heater!

    The heater on late hunts, dust in the summer, and mud on the spring turkey hunts.
