Shotguns / Re: Anyone use the SA459 for coyote?
« on: Today at 06:11:14 PM »
I missed this.
I do not have one of those but l would think it would work good. One of my friends is a coyote hunter and he uses my H&R single shot 10 ga.

Enjoy the rifle, those take downs are really nice and way ahead of their time as with a lot of things from Savage arms

The 210 partition is a proven performer. With the 340 it should have plenty of range also

Yeah if l remember right you got a 300 in a accumark not long ago, and now building a 25-06. Poor guy, how can you stand it 😂😂

It's a tough life!! She just OK'd the purchase of a new gun safe. The one I have is pretty crowded. The new one will have lots of space. It will probably look too empty...

What caliber will the next one be, or haven't you had time  sense your last purchase to think about it 😂😂

What brand of safe are you looking at?

Lol, so your saying you don't want to live in house, eat food, have lights and air conditioning. No  gasoline to go hunting?
Am l getting this right?
Your young married with a young child, enjoy it, there will be time for hunting

Lesson here aside from what happens when you ban hunting. is don't run away and leave your friend for dead. If the biker who got killed would have stayed and helped his friend who was being attacked. There is no doubt the two could have fought the cougar off. But he freaked out and ran for it. Turning the cougars natural instinct to chase on him self. A article I read said they did nothing wrong. When in fact They didn't do anything right. They both left there friend and ran for it. Glad I don't have friends like that.  :-[

I was thinking the same thing. What happened to sticking to the end! No matter how it turns out

A young male mountain lion is  considered the most aggressive.
There are some around the area here. One likes to bury deer parts in the soft arena dirt. The ladies came and got me one day, said there is a mound by second barrel. (Barrel racers) Was a part of a mule deer and cat tracks everywhere

Sounds like a good idea. Hope they wait a bit though the gun fund is really low!

Looks like all the work is done, time to head to the range
115 grain  partition in a 26-06 is a proven load
Good luck

Rifles / Re: How many shots before serious cleaning?
« on: May 19, 2018, 06:34:47 AM »
After cleaning my .257 takes about 5 rounds to settle down and shoot good groups again
Agree with everyone that you don't have to worry about 12 rounds before cleaning

Rifles / Re: Sand bag placement for accuracy test

If you plan on using a tri-pod hunting, either use it also at the bench or at least place the sand bag under your sling stud

"Your scopes mounting screws may be protruding slightly into the rifle chamber causing closing problems"


This is the first thing I thought of as I read this post.Good call Dan

How does the bolt work without trying to cycle a round?

Would have to check but l don't think they are tapped all the way though to the chamber. There may be one behind the chamber in the front collar of the action. If your screw is to long there it would be a problem with or with a  cartridge.
Tom l think you were right asking how it cycled without a round
