I am glad my favorite rifle manufacturer is being led by someone who cares about the products, the company, and the workers. I have always wondered why any business would stay in that state. WY is a great move for them, and I wish them all the luck in the world.

Worth looking at. Thank you for the info!

I really miss the .338 200 grain Hornady bullets too!

Best of luck, go get em!

I have actually had very good success with Barnes TTSX bullets in all of my rifles. Yes, they are picky about how you load them, and you have to put in a little work. I have found though, maybe a fluke, If I load 1 full grain under max, that seems to give me around a 1 inch group. Like I said, maybe just a fluke, but that is what I have found.

I still like to taylor my loads for the best accuracy though. Fun to experiment just a bit expensive. It can pay off though!

Sorry Blackbear3. I lost my Dad 2 months ago. He was the one who taught me how to love the Lord, hunt and fish....and everything else. This will be my first hunting season in 39 years without him....we'll see how that goes.

Awesome guy! I hate to hear that.

Danno- It was in Eustis Florida, just north of Orlando. It was a two day hunt. No feeder but they put out some corn in the morning to draw them out cause it is so thick. The smaller hogs would come out and in just a few minutes the corn would be all gone. If you were patient, and not shoot the smaller ones,  the larger hogs would come around mostly in the evening before dark.
