Just wondered what everybody is shooting this year i have a rem 700 in 7 mag prostaff 5 50mm scope on it i guess i will use this year i also have a 7600 rem carbine pump and a 760 rem carbine pump they all shoot excellent the pumps are a fun gun for me killed a buck last year 200 yards with 7600 have always used rem corelokts and shot a 700 since the early 70's but this spring i was shooting some winchester ballistic tips 150 grain 3006 and 7 mag they shot good and im sighted in for them so guess thats what i will use kinda leery about getting away from corelokts they are cheap but have always shot good and killed good for me

Going with a Mossberg Patriot (I know... I know... but it was cheap & it's light enough that I can manage it with my screwed up arms) in .308 this time around. Would have to go look & see what ammo I was using at the range the other day - left it in the case with the rifle.

Have used them all from 223 to 300 win mag.

Hunt with 243 Hornady 95gr SST superformance or federal fusion 95gr fusion soft point.

Not trying to start a debate but see no reason to hunt whitetail deer with anything bigger then a 243 ok maybe 270 (Jack O'Conner shout out)

Savage Trophy Hunter 111 in .308. Nikon scope that came with it.

Winchester PowerPoint in 150 grain.

Tried to get it to like the exspensive Fedrleral Nosler partition ammo, but it hated it.

Ruger American 7mm-08 with Hornady Full Boar GMX 139 gr. Worked like a charm last year for both my son and me.

Remington 700 .30-06 with Barnes TTSX 150 gr. Haven’t used it in over 25 years but will be taking it out for a spin this season. My son is old enough to hunt by himself, so he will be using the 7mm-08.
