Bummer on the scope but it sounds like the rifle will be a good shooter.Hopefully Leupold will do a quick turnaround.

Mark: I use the Remington's in my 257s and 300s Weatherbys.My nephew uses them also.Never any problems and some very accurate and fast rounds.

Nice find Mark.I am sure your grandsons will enjoy it.

That came out good DW.Hope you get that whitetail this year.

Dan: You would have no trouble after you did it a few times.I use 15x50 IS binoculars for finding them initially and then the problem is moving the table and gun to find them thru the scope with the narrow field of view if you are shooting much magnification on the scope.I had a bunch in tall grass this time that you could only see when they stood up.I would take the scope down to 8x to find them and then dial up the magnification to shoot.This new Shilen barrel shoots the Fiocchi factory 40 vmax so well that I have not even developed a load for it.I was already shooting these in the AR so it worked out good not to have to take different ammo for each gun.I bought 5500 rounds at a real good price and when I sell the brass it is as cheap as I can reload for and that is not even taking my time into consideration.

WOW.You done good.Congrats and thanks for the Picts.

Brett:My farthest kill was slightly over 650 yds going by the 46 clicks of elevation on my scope with a 200 yd zero.Not a lot of these kills. ;D The wet conditions made it really hard to spot your shots to make adjustments.

Our hunt was with Pahapesto Guide Service in South Dakota https://huntbadnation.com/tags%2Flicense-info . Great guys, friendly,nice lodge,an over abundance of good food at every meal.Mother nature messed with us some but you cant control that. First day of hunt we woke up to rain. We made a 1 hour drive to try to find an area with  no rain  but to no avail. Pdogs are not out in any rain or usually even if it is cloudy and stormy looking. We went out at 2 to hunt that day. A full day of hunting the next day and then on the last day we hunted until 10 when the rain came back. We were able to get back to hunting at 4:30. On the second afternoon I spotted a head that had stripes at 300 yds in a mound. Yep badger, there were 2 but would only occasionly play peekaboo. Never got a badger and wanted one bad. I spent a lot of the afternoon checking to see if they came out. I did no shooting any where around them an didn't shoot at any dogs where the shot would go over their den. We loaded up shooting benches guns etc at 8, and as we were doing this, Jay our guide, told me to get my gun because you could see one .He wasnt showing much but I shot off the truck hood and we all heard the bullet thunk.We went to check  as we were leaving and he had made it into the hole. I will attach a pict of the mound and hole.They have a tunnel dug I so they can come in from
the side withut going over the top.Bones all around. We both shot 600-650 rounds. Best shooting should be better earlier in the year but he was booked up early for next year and all through the dates we were hunting this year. Attaching a few picts of what the area looked like also. Beautiful country.

Congratulations. As Ron said we saw some big Muleys in that area.Sure you will get a big one.

I would want a 4wd to climb over downed limbs,trees,rocks etc. easily.If the Tomcar didn't have that it would be a deal breaker for me.

Ya got most everything covered with the rifles you have.Why not a "just because" rifle in the 375. :o

After a thorough cleaning like that be aware you may need a couple of fouling shots before the barrel settles down. I would try the 2 you have now before getting the 140's. Good luck.

I'll post some more Picts and some more about the hunt tomorrow when I get on the computer.Cell service sucks in weather here and I keep getting kicked off and can't load any Picts.

Ron I checked out that Yamaha.That is one big machine.
