    shelter in place

    That is not the only logical conclusion at all. Another logical conclusion is that people in this country enjoy being independent so they're just continuing to do whatever they want … even if the virus is real and they're being foolish. Remember, ya can't fix stupid!!

    280AI or 28 Nosler

    I think the honest answer is we don't "need" any of this at all … it's just all fun to have so we "want" it.

    280AI or 28 Nosler

    When I shot my Bear and Buck with it last year it kicked so little I actually stayed on them in the scope and saw them react to the bullet impact. I never saw that before, my scope always jumped off the animal with my old 30-06.

    280AI or 28 Nosler

    I have a muzzle brake on my 28 Nosler and it barely kicks at all … it sure is loud though!

    I think you're right. I suppose that's why rich people can make money during times like this.

    Work from home dudes

    Yeah, I also have an Irish Wolfhound and a Golden who are happy to sleep. But my Lab will chase his stick all day long. My elbow hurts right now … I think I threw it out yesterday tossing that stick for him!!!

    Work from home dudes

    I'm working from home now and set up a temp office in my work-room downstairs. My wife is working in our office upstairs as she works from home a lot normally anyway. Kids are grow so no problem there. The only real issue is I can't figure out how to get my Yellow Lab to understand that I can't...

    MT Mule Deer over $600?

    I agree with you Hilltop. I'm willing to pay the cost of a nonres tag even though I don't like it much. It's worth it to me. I also think Mallards makes a good point that our kids will probably think very differently.

    MT Mule Deer over $600?

    I think Jim nailed it. There are plenty of people who will pay the higher costs so that mean's they can charge it … and still sell all their tags.

    Rifle Review Snowy Mountain Rifles

    For what it’s worth, I’m happy with my rifle. It’s kinda like a buying a Swaro spotting scope, pay now and enjoy the benefits for a long time.

    Rifle Review Snowy Mountain Rifles

    The 28 Nosler is a pretty awesome caliber. I had a little apprehension when I bought mine but Fortunately I really do like it’s performance. I believe you’ll like the performance better than your 7mm ... but maybe not enough to justify that much $$$. Could you sell your 7mm to help pay the bill?

    280AI or 28 Nosler

    Good points ... I considered that as well. I immediately bought plenty of 28 Nosler brass so no worries there. I also have a 30-06 so no worries of running out of something to shoot.

    280AI or 28 Nosler

    Yep I went thru the same ballistics drill as Slugz. I settled on the 28 Nosler because I’m starting to shoot out to 1,000 yards on the range with the guy who built my rifle. He competes in matches at 1,000 and 2,000. I think it will be fun to shoot that far ... at paper & steel. I don’t plan...

    62 years old but I’m not sure that means much. I keep in shape and can typically get around like I’m 40 or so. Of course my brain often still thinks I’m 21 ... usually with bad results. I flew helicopters in the Army for 20 years and then got into Aerospace ... ran the NORAD operations center...

    280AI or 28 Nosler

    I agree with Jim. I recently looked at both the 280AI and 28 Nosler. I had a 28 Nosler built because I preferred its ballistics.
