Trying out the ML before next weekends hunt.First pict is 100 yds and second is where it hits at 50yds, both Picts needed to be rotated 90 degrees.The Wolf with the no tools needed breech plug is great and using the Blackhorn 209 powder it cleans up easily with Hoppes No 9.The Hornady SST sabots are the easiest I have ever loaded.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Getting deer camp ready
« on: October 14, 2017, 01:59:44 PM »
My nephew texted he was going down Friday nite to get the deer camp going to hunt this weekend for opening ML hunt next weekend.Great I told him.I get this text picture about 11 am today.Now my idea of getting deer camp ready is making sure feeders are full,working,shooting lanes shredded,Cameras out,stands ready,trimmed around, etc..Oh well, we will be watching football if nothing else with the new TV.lol.Hopefully he gets around to the important stuff.

Looks like Nate has New Orleans in its sights.It floods enough there without a tropical storm or hurricane. Looks to be tracking on up into Mississippi and Alabama.Stay safe all.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / New barrel ordered for Pdog gun
« on: September 23, 2017, 04:40:17 PM »
I ordered a new barrel for one of my Pdog guns Friday.For a Savage Model 12 LRPV in 204 Ruger.It has a 26 inch barrel that is  1 inch at the muzzle and has started to lose a little accuracy.Just not one ragged hole anymore .Not bad for the number of rounds down it 3000-3500.I thought I better go ahead and order a new barrel in case it does suddenly go bad.I have had great accuracy  with  Shilen  barrels and decided to go with them again with a 32 inch barrel.Not cheap but what I wanted and hopefully worth it.3-4 month wait and maybe longer with the the long barrel and the match select choice.Hopefully it is fast and accurate.

Pulled out my ML tonite to get it ready to do some shooting this weekend for an upcoming hunt the last of October.Yep,no scope on it.Forgot I had robbed the scope off it to put on the 17Hmr I bought.After some looking and shopping I still think a Nikon Prostaff 5 is still the best bang for the buck scope out there.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Huntn Bear in Minnesota
« on: September 11, 2017, 11:37:12 AM »
First day bear hunting Sunday. High south winds and 75.High winds equaled no mosquitos and also no bear during shooting hours. 11 hunters no bear seen.Guides ran baits this morning and checked game cameras.Left stand at last legal shooting time 8:10. One showed up on camera at 8:15.Sooo I will go to same stand tonite and hope bear comes in early.Guide also warned me that a sow and 2 cubs showed on camera at 2:30 AM.We caught a few small mouth bass from the bank and pier at the cabin we are staying at.No cell coverage at the lake . I can only get online in town at Guide's place.Pict of stand I was on last nite.Trees starting to turn colors here.Sorry not letting me post Picts right now.

Should have been hunting black bear in Minnesota Friday and hopefully would have had one by now.Ole Harvey reared his ugly head though to put a kink in plans.lol.One of my friends from Louisiana was going on the hunt and Harvey made the turn for his home area and it sure didn't make sense for him to leave his family for a bear hunt.We decided to try to reschedule so we could all go.The guide said he was fully booked and we said we understood no problem.He talked awhile and then said it sounded like we were having enough problems already and that he would work us in if we could reschedule everything to finish a  hunt before Sept 16.Flooding in La where Miko lived but he had no major damage and his sons stepped in and told him he better go shoot a bear they would take care of things there.Our hunt is rescheduled for Sept 10-15.The airlines were very understanding due to Harvey and also the motel we had to cancel on.They were booked but helped set up a cabin for us to rent there instead.Sooo the hunt is back on. ;D

I had asked about this trimmer several weeks ago and decided to buy one.Since this weekend I have trimmed about 800 of 204 brass and 250 of 22-250 brass.Have been very impressed and my hands and wrist really thank me.Yeah, I am tired of sizing,trimming,chamfering,deburring,and priming.Price you pay though when shooting a lot.On to prepping some 223 WSSM brass tomorrow.The trimmer sure makes it easier and highly recommend.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Hornady 1 Shot Case Lube
« on: June 26, 2017, 04:13:09 PM »
I have always used Imperial Die Sizing Wax as a lube to resize cases.Probably a year ago I found some Hornady 1 Shot spray on sale when making an order.I had never used it but decided to give it a try last weekend.I was very happy with how it worked and will switch over to it.It is not as economical to use as the Imperial wax I applied with my fingers to every brass each time I put a brass in the sizer deprimer die but I felt the spray was faster overall and not as messy.It is also been reported to be a great release agent when bedding barrels.

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Heating Up
« on: June 14, 2017, 01:40:33 PM »
Headed up to Lubbock Texas area for a hunt Friday. Forecast high Friday is 106f and the high for Saturday 108F.Only good thing is low humidity and winds in the 10-12 mph range rather than the 20 mph range a few weeks ago when we went.That should make shooting a little easier.Forecast calls for a cool 98f Sunday.Anyone else having this early heat?
