Winning Team 2013 deer contest


« on: January 15, 2019, 08 :52:22 AM »

I acquired a new  member to the family over the weekend. Browning A Bolt 3 in 6.5 Creedmoor with a Nikon 4-12 Buckmaster. I have not done much research on this one yet, but I will get to work on what it likes and see what it will do. I had bought a Sako .338 win mag a few years ago that was a bargain and kept the scope off it and put on another rifle and traded the gun for this one.  I have been told that the military has been looking at it to take the place of the .308. I don't know this to be true or not though.

Lord, make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who seek to destroy me. Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to do harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be, if only I had a gun, and lord, if today is the day you call me home, let me die in a pile of empty brass

Mainly critters but if the 2 legged varmints don't stop their prowling around at night we will go look for blood in the day light. It is getting bad again around here with people stealing stuff. Someone here in town has video footage of someone breaking into their truck and taking a shotgun out of the truck. The cops are asking for info on who it might be. I used to not worry to much about it but I am keeping a shotgun close by incase we hear something during the night. If the yard dog comes unhinged during the night I'm going to check now what she is upset about.  hunttt hunttt hunttt

I have not heard anything about the military dumping the 308 but I did read that there is interest in the possibility of the 5.56 being phased out. The article I read mentioned the 6.8 SPC as a candidate or a starting point. The taxpayers have lots of money so no doubt they will spend some.

After digging on the internet some I ran across this article about the 6.5 vs .308 and it talks about the military moving to the 6.5 in 2019 and the reasons why the 6.5 is growing in popularity now.
