  1. KKM barrel cut my groups in half from a rest at 25 yds
  2. Love the TSX but be careful. I shoot 62gr TSX for medium sized gave out of a 22Nosler. Because they're pure copper they are longer per given weight than a lead bullet. Thus, barrel rate of twist needing compatibility with bullet length (not weight) may effect your accuracy. Just saying and shoot, shoot, shoot. Talk to "Bully" if you need bedding. Have fun, prepare well and "reach out and touch someone".
  3. I don't know how you came up with that 400 number or why you're so tied to it. You shoot small at 300 and learn to read wind you'll be better than fine. Nobody has talked about wind. Just as a matter of convenience I'm not attaching a ballistics chart but believe me wind will F' you up. Now I don't hunt long but shoot routinely to 800 competitively. I hunt pin point out to 100 but that's the area I hunt. You're gonna shoot 180gr bullets I'm sure. Practice at the CR 300 a lot. Read wind. Wind at their 300 really sux. Practice shooting off of sticks or you pack Just like you will on your hunt. Is your rifle at least 3/4 MOA? If you want to talk get in touch. As you know I'm in SC so unless your coming down I can't help personally.
  4. I consider myself an ethical hunter and if I were you this is what I'd do.... Chrono the load. Map it out (fire it ) at 100,200,300. Compare results to a ballistics chart you develop based on MV and BC and adjust. Extrapolate out to 400. Hey you better develop a ballistics chart anyway what if you get a longer shot?
  5. Surrender your firearm. Jokes/Levity? Exaggerations? Not with firearms my friend.
  6. Having just reviewed the recent results of the poll it is pretty sad. If a firearm is useless to you if you can't get a pinky on it, get some damned training and learn to shoot. I was taught to shoot a 1911 with 3 fingers. I carry a "no pinky gun" every day with no consequence. I'm not a USPSA champ, not some "Operator". Just an average guy that can shoot. I'm kind of thin and need to carry a small pistol. No pinky and a little ring finger on it. I don't want to get crazy here but, self defense involves more that hitting paper and requires a mind set. Yes my fun/target handguns have full grips. Flame on MF'ers HE said it: Carrying a gun should be comforting. It doesn’t necessarily have to be comfortable.
  7. +1 Maks !!! Only the adaptable survive. The "don't fit me" pussies will be rotting corpses. Is that too strong a statement?
  8. As you discovered you can sight down the length of the can with some accuracy. My 22lr can is skinny enough not to obscure sights and rifle cans are no prob. Some host/can combos won't require enhanced sights.
  9. Somebody needs suppressor height sights.
  10. Just a heads up and I'm sure you all are aware that there are states in which you must notify the LEO that you are CCW at traffic stops. This is the case in SC where I live. So after I greet the LEO that's the first thing I tell him. Automatically give him DL and CWP. Most recently as I was going for my wallet he asked where the weapon was. I just tapped my hip with my wallet and said "right here". All went smooth of course.
  11. Yep Hobby guns w/ 3000 rds probably gas rings if the gas key is tight. Just encountered one of these on a S&W AR.
  12. Look! There was mention of a 22lr. Dog sized game w/ a 22lr and a body shot even the heart is many times a pass through with little effect until the hemorrhaging starts. I've dispatched big feral cats with CCI Mini Mags HP head shots and even after they're down they're kicking. So body shots? When you were hunting coy I'm sure you weren't using a 22lr and were they running? And BTW 22lr HPs were a pass through. Not arguing just giving you my experience.
  13. I love animals. I love my wife. My wife was mauled by a neighbor's dog. Which side do you think I line up on? If a stray dog is on my property and I've been loosing livestock, there's only one solution if the owner is irresponsible. Five shots? Ever shoot at a dog or coyote on the run?
