The scope is actually a cheap Nikko Sterling that came on another rifle(Howa 1500). I think the rings Burris Extra high or Nikko Sterling extra high rings. Thinking more so Nikko Sterling bought at Academy.

Thanks Roger and DW. I sent you a PM Chris.

Here's my little tack driver. This is a .223 Wylde with a JP Rifle Precision Match barrel and titanium bolt with ultra light BCG, Noveske VLTOR upper receiver, Anderson lower with Giessele kit and Elfman Trigger. The scope is the infamous Schmidt and Bender PM II 5 x 25 - 50mm. The stock is the MagPul PRS Gen 3 with a JP Rifle silent captured buffer in the tube. Before I realized it, I had over 5,000.00 invested in it, thank god ammo is cheap.  The fun part about the AR is not just the fun at the range but it's all the cool stuff you can do to them to personalize them. Have tons of fun with your new rifle but set yourself an upgrade budget, add-ons are addicting.

Nice looking rifle! Iím looking forward to getting out to the range with it and whack some coyotes with it.

Sent you an email

Hey guys this might be a stupid question but I bought a Remington R-15 VTR stainless in 223 Rem. I bought it as my main coyote hunting rifle and to shoot for fun. My question is what kind of scope mounts do I get for this thing? I read some might need risers for the scope mounts. ???

Pm your cellphone or email and I will show you what I have on one of my uppers. I use extra high rings.

You got the Raven crossbow right? I was wanting to hear how it performed for you. Today was my last time going out with a crossbow now going to wait until Saturday and take one of my rifles. Either 6.5-300 or 6.5 Creedmoor?


Do not have one yet. Currently shooting an old Wicked Ridge. Bow still shoots great, just not a great setup for my current hunting spots. Strongly considering pulling the trigger on the Ravin sometime in the near future though.  I was asking about it on here when another member bought one sometime back.

I went and looked at them at Cabelaís last week and from handling it in store it definitely didnít disappoint. I also called and talked to a Ravin rep and found out the R10 and R20 will be the most current model through all of 2019.  One of the big reasons I was drawn to them is the super compact design. I would allow me to bow hunt a few of my stands that I can not right now. Also really, really like the bowís performance... I think Iíve settled in on the R20, now I just need to figure out if I want to pay the extra 500+ for the sniper package. Seeing as how these things ainít cheap to begin with, Iím considering just going all in and getting all the extra bells and whistles that come with the upgraded package. -level, jackplate for one yard dials out to 100 yards (200 if you play with it, supposedly) and upgraded Vortex scope-

I thought you had one. I know we talked a while back about crossbows but got yours mixed up with someone elseís.
If you can afford the R20 I would go for it!

Take the 6.5-300, if you can get them to line up for you, you can get like 3, maybe 4 in one shot. LOL.. My 6.5-300 is amazing. My 6.5 Creedmoor is ok but I'd probably hunt with my .308 if those were my choices. In reality, if I didn't need a big caliber, I'd take my .257.

My .308 has a 10x scope. I have those 140 grain SPís sighted in right now. I only have two tags left!
A buddy at work wants to borrow my .450 so Anna will have to use the 6.5 Creedmoor. My neighbor has my .257 still.

It was a lot of work. My wife helped a lot. Last year the deer we were going to do all the extra stuff was bad. The deer smelled horrible and I shot it in the neck. Donít know what was wrong with it. So this year I wanted to make sure I was going to get my extra stuff from the get go.
How were the moose tenderloins?
That was my first crossbow deer. It came close to not happening too. I came about 1/2Ē or closer to hitting the blind and and not be able to shoot thru my window. He was about to run off but stopped behind a couple trees and I had no shot. Doubled checked my clearance and hoped he would take one step which he did. Was no doubt. He whirled nose dived, ran about 50 yards and was dead in about 3 seconds.

Iím jealous. Was really hoping for my first xbow deer this year. Super cool you got yourís! I suppose I could still go after it but when a rifle is legal to have in my hands, thatís probably what Iíll be carrying.

You saved a lot of money doing it yourself. Plus, you get to season the sausage the way you want it vs hoping the good receipe from a year ago or so is repeated. I've been cutting my own deer and making jerky or roasts and have no plans to let someone else do it.


My wife doesnít like going out with me hunting but she is a huge help when one is down.

Mmmm that sounds great. When should I pop over for dinner? lol  ;D

I will stock up on Fosters just give me a holler when you are in town

If every post you have made here wasn't about selling something, I MIGHT trust you.

That is a little harsh ainít it

WOW. Sounds like some good eating.Time to harvest a few more now.

Sending you a text

Tasty ;D

Don't know how others do it but my wife cubes the venison, and the pork, spices them and mix meats then grind them into the casing. Seems to make the sausage with some small chunks instead of a real find grind. I suppose if you were using a stuffer grinding separate and mixing would work the same.


We use a fine grind for our sausages. We usually boil them in beer and the brown them. We also use my grinder to stuff the casings. I have a sausage stuffer but we have not have any good luck with it.

Next one I want to small batch some canned deer meat. I always wanted to try it and to try to can it.

You went to work. Congrats again!
