Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / ELK HUNTING IN UTAH
« on: August 17, 2015, 07:38:31 PM »
I would like to hunt in Elk in Utah in 6-7 years when my kids are done with College.  I live in Illinois should I start buying preference points or bonus points to increase my odds of getting a rifle bull tag?

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Bipods & Gun Cases
« on: December 30, 2013, 04:38:55 AM »
I recently put a Caldwell bipod on my Vanguard and now it won't fit in any of my soft gun cases.  Can someone suggest a soft sided gun case that will work for guns with bipods?

Reloading / Forster Reloading Dies
« on: August 31, 2012, 06:44:51 PM »
Anybody ever use Forster reloading dies?  I may purchase a 2 die set for my 224 Weatherby.  Plan to use Honady 50 gr V-max slugs.  Does anyone have a good load I could use?

I take my synthetic vanguard coyote hunting just about every weekend during the winter.  Taking the gun in and out of the cold, causes my gun to get covered with moisture.  I usually let my gun seat in the house for a day or two and wipe down all the exterior metal with wd-40.  I dont take the barreled action out of the stock and wipe down the bottom of the barrel or action.  Is something I need to do on a regular basis or would that be overkill and would the continued disaasembly of my rifle hurt its excellent accuracy?  By the way I have had the action bedded,

Reloading / C.O.A.L. Tolerance
« on: January 15, 2012, 03:20:11 PM »
When reloading how tight should I be able to hold my desired C.O.A.L.  I am using RCBS dies and can only seem to hold plus or minus .005 in overall length.  Is this acceptable or am I doing something incorrect?

Does any one out there have any good loads for a 224 Weatherby?  I would like to use 50 gr Hornady V max slugs.

Rifles / Straight comb vanguard
« on: May 07, 2011, 04:06:01 AM »
I have the opportunity to purchase a new in the box Vanguard with a straight comb stock.  Can anyone tell me what years the Vanguards were made with a stock like this?

Custom Shop / 224 VANGUARD
« on: March 04, 2011, 05:59:01 PM »
How practical would it be to purchase a new model or old model Vanguard in 223 remington and have it rechambered to a 224 Weatherby Magnum.  Would the custom shop even do something like this?
I have just fallen in Love with the idea of a belted Magnum coyote gun and can not afford any of the used varmint masters I have found on the internet.

Reloading / Load data for 225 gr Barnes TTSX for a 340

Does anyone have load data for a 340 weatherby using Barnes 225 grain tipped triple shocks?

Ammo / GMX versus TTSX
« on: November 08, 2010, 04:25:51 AM »
I shoot an Accumark in 340 WBY magnum.  Does anyone have any experience shooting Hornady GMX lead free bullets?  HAs anyone shot both GMX and Barnes TTSX bullets and how do they compare, accuracy, fouling etcc?.  Are the GMX shorter than the barnes bullets?
After the holidays I am hoping Santa has brought me some reloading dies and would like to start reloading for this gun.  Although I have been shooting the COR-BON 225 Barnes TTSX loads and am very impressed.

Talley Lightweight 2-Piece Scope Mounts with Integral 1" Rings Weatherby Magnum Matte Medium
I would like to put these on my accumark 340 wby mag.  Will these hold up to the recoil?

Reloading / Does anyone remember Golden Bear Bullets
« on: May 17, 2010, 08:16:09 PM »
Does anyone remember Golden Bear Bullets?  They brass pistol bullets.  Ross seyfried wrote an article years ago about hotloads for 45 colt caliber revolvers.  I bought some years ago and just got the itch to load some more.  I have searched the internet and can not find any information on the company or the brass bullets.  I have 20 loaded shells left and do not want to shoot them unless I can find some more.
