I just took the Leupold Vari X 2 off my Rem 700 308 and put it on my Savage 220 so the 308 is out of commission until I can get new glass for it. If I can’t get the 220 sighted in before season starts I’ll just use the Rem 700 in 7mm Rem Mag. I’m sure the deer won’t have much to say about it afterwards...For deer I’ll be using a Savage 220 slug gun with 3” Remington Accutip slugs. Shotgun is topped with a Nikon Prostaff 5 2.5-10 scope. This slug gun will really shoot well. I’ve been very impressed with it.
My Muzzle Loader is still charged for our late December M/L season.
Same here too. The furthest shot would be within 200 yards or less. All of the Deer I've taken averaged <75 yards, but did take one @ 150 yards one Season.Mine too. I may pull out the little NE single shot 270. When I use it things drop dead. Whatever the case you don’t need something that “will reach out and touch one” where I hunt. Too thick, and well, too crowded. Not a fan of gun season myself, at least not that opening weekend.
