Re: Which 7mm caliber?

While some people like it, I used it for a while and found-it to be marginal on rams with 162 and 168 bullets, pushed as fast as safe pressures allowed. After losing a well hit pig with a 140 grain bullet from a 7 BR in a match in Mesa, Arizona, I had the 7mm BR barrel rechambered to 7mm-08 and neve...

Re: What 6.5 for HP Silhouette?

I use both the 260 and 6.5 x 47mm Lapua. Either one of those or the 6.5 Creedmoor will work.
120 grain bullets at 2650 fps for chickens/pigs/turkeys and 140/142 grainers at 2650 fps for rams.
Some folks even use the 6.5 x 55mm Swede and the 6.5 BR with good results.

Recommended Peep Sight for Henry .22 Lever Rifle

Well, Santa heard I got the .22 l. R. lever rifle bug and put a little Henry .22 under the tree. Right from the start, I know the factory rear sight has to go, so I would really welcome your recommendations for an adjustable rear peep sight for this little rifle. As always, your kind advice is welco...
