    Copper solvent/cleaner

    Wipeout does a great job and can be left in the bore without causing pitting that other solvents can do if left in too long. Hoppes No 9 will work, but it takes time. I will do an initial cleaning, then run some Hoppes through the bore and put the rifle away for a week or so, then pull it out...

    Quality Matters

    Everyone likes Vortex because they have a great warranty. I do have a couple. A Crossfire 2-7 on a shotgun set up with a slug barrel and a Diamondback 2-7 on an AR. No failures yet, but I have my fingers crossed. For Leupolds, I have a few VX3s and would not even think about any of the lines...

    Rifle pic

    Here is a Ruger No. 1 that I customized this past year. I had PacNor install a 6mm CM barrel threaded for suppressor use. I got the stock set from MPI and had to do some modifications to fit it and bed the forearm. I also did the paint job. The scope is a SWFA 3-15. Local gunsmith milled the...

    Got to tour the entire factory back in 2017. The basement range they have is pretty cool.

    A Word Of Warning Regarding Deer Processors!

    On the flip side, I took some trimmed venison to a KY processor to get ground and packaged and the guy ahead of me had a deer rump (both side still attached) and two whole back-straps and it was all gray and nasty looking. The folks were not too pleased at accepting it and I think they added a...

    Chigger increase? Chigger repelent for deer hunting?

    Tucking pants into boots actually helps a lot. Back in my Army days we tried everything to ease the itch of chigger bite. The critters are long gone once the itching starts. the best thing we found was to use was extra strength acne medicated wipes. I think the cyclic acid in it helps clear up...

    Dead Air Sandman S

    Nice, I have the Hybrid-46 that I run on a 308, 6.8spc AR, and a pair of 223 ARs. I also have a 22 suppressor. I tested out the Hybrid on my g-19 that past few weekends and realized that my 147 XTP load is right at the sub/super sonic range as some were silent and some still had the crack. My...

    AR-10 Upper and Lower

    Last time I was at KY Gun Co in Bardstown, they had some AR-10 lowers for a decent price. You can find the upper receivers easy enough online. Barrels will be the trick to find. One thing, you have to watch is you really need to match the upper and lower by manufacture as there is no standard...

    Remington 700 ADL .308 quick review

    Get either the Trigger Tech or Timney Trigger for it. I have a stainless 308 bedded in a Bell and Carlson Alaskan Sporter stock and love it. Manners are very nice, but above my budget. As for scopes, I have a couple of VX-3 scopes, but would not go below that level. Leupold are not what they...

    Spotting Scope

    I have the Vortex Diamondback. It is ok, but not great. I mainly use it to look at targets 100-300 yards while testing loads. It is good enough for that. I have had it out west elk hunting. Spotting elk 1k yards away, it does ok, but the picture/glass quality left me wanting a better spotting...

    Idaho Disabled Veteran Hunt

    Vets with 40% or more disability used to be able to get Idaho tags at resident price, but they are limiting those elk and deer tags now so it is very hard to get them. They can still get a regular hunting lic at resident price, but those tags are hard to get since they changed the system for the...
