One of my friends is wanting to pass down his 30-06 to his son for Christmas but was worried he might develop a flinch. I told him about using H4895. I found a good article on this and thought I would pass on the link. https://www.chuckhawks.com/reduced_recoil_H4895.htm

I just heard about the death of our former President. Prayers  to the family.

There was a problem and that is now I want one. Lol My friend has been talking trash about getting a .378 for a long time but claimed he could never find one in a wrong handed model.Well I found him one in great shape on GB last week and told him I would ride down with him to pick it up. Time to put up or shut up. He got the bid on GB and we met the seller at Carters Country in Houston to pick it up. It was in great shape as advertised and he got a box of ammo there.Brought it home and mounted a Sightron Big Sky 4-16 he had on it.Eye relief on it was only 3.8 inches at 4 power.With the scope mounted the combo weighed in at 9.8 lbs.All our shooting was done off the bench and he had it zeroed in 6 shots. I fired 3 rounds out of it and got right at a 1 inch group.Yiu knew the recoil was there but I would say it was like my unbraked 300 Wby.And no we were not foolish enough to try it without the Brake.  ;D The .378 is about 250 fps faster than my .375 Ruger and 350 fps faster than a .375 H&H. Picts of the rifle and one of .378 Wby round vs the .375 Ruger.

I have not been able to get to Arkansas to hunt but they are doing just fine without me. Sis nailed this one tonite as well as a doe earlier in the week with her .257 Weatherby. 100 grain Barnes TSX pushed by a healthy dose of H1000.

A big thank you to those that have and are serving.

Headed to my friends house to watch the Aggie football game late this morning and I saw Wylie Coyote scoping out some of their calves about 150 yds away in the pasture.Pulled off into the driveway that enters the pasture and took a rest off the gate post.Wylie had headed back to the woods but stopped to look back at the edge of the woods. That is when the .257 caught up to him at a lasered 328 yds. Remington 700 .257 Wby 26 inch barrel 100 grain Barnes tsx in front of 78 grains of H1000 .
Going 3713 fps.Bye Bye Wylie.

I need to buy a lightweight set of gaiters for a hunt I have coming up.Warm weather trip and need protection for stickers and thorns mainly.Not worried about them being waterproof. Any suggestions?

My nephew sent me these 2 Picts off the gamecams of 2 small bucks sparring on our land in Arkansas.Also the pict from his phone of a thick long beard from one of our stands. I may just have to make the trip up next Spring to try for him.

Optics Planet will also knock the price down to $275 with regular shipping,https://www.opticsplanet.com/vortex-crossfire-ii-3-12x56mm-ao-hog-hunter-riflescope-w-v-brite-reticle.html
