Re: Weaver Classic T24 Scope

Thanks everyone for your input. I purchased a Leupold FX-3 Silhouette 25X for my nephew. It should arrive shortly. I hope that he likes it.

Weaver Classic T24 Scope

My nephew would like a new scope for his rifle. He asked me about a new Weaver Classic T24 fixed power scope. Anyone uses one? How does it compare to Leupold's Competition in 25x? Should I mention a variable scope? However, I think he wants a fixed power scope. Thank you for you help?

Sightron SIII (S3) 6-24 LRD

Does anyone use a Sightron SIII 6-24x50 LRD? Not the discontinued SII Silhouette. Came across one at a good price. Have used a SIII 3.5-10. Very good glass at a competitive price. Thanks

Trent,
When I was on Sierra's website their .204s were back order only.

Re: 9mm Pistol Loads

Nobody?
How about a powder other than Bullseye, Unique or Power Pistol?

Re: Heavy 6mm bullets

Kevinbear,
Were those the Tubb's DTAC that you were thinking of using? When my .243 gets back from the smith I will be able to shoot them. Seems a little better than 105 and 107 bullets by Berger and Hornady.

Re: What caliber for varmint hunting?

Another Dang 9, I bought two guns for the hunt. 150 rounds a day was my average. I let people shoot my savage and Ruger AR. I also shot other people's guns. It was a great experience unless you were one of the little fellows. Trent I still feel bad because it was soo easy. They didn't stand a chance...

9mm Pistol Loads

Hello Everyone, I know this is off topic, but can you guys give me your favorite 9mm pistol loads. My uncle gave me his S&W 5906 pistol which is in excellent condition because I am restoring his old .243 rifle. Being an old Bullseye shooter I never got into the wonder nines. I have plenty of Bullsey...

Re: Heavy 6mm bullets

Thanks guys. However, my 7mm-08 also has a 260 barrel. I will be keeping the gun in .243. My uncle was happy with my decision that he also gave me his S&W 5906 pistol which is in great condition. Now I have to get 9mm dies.

Re: What caliber for varmint hunting?

Another Dang 9,
My first day out I shot about two hundred rounds. After that first day was over I averaged 100 rounds per day.

Re: What caliber for varmint hunting?

Sorry for not posting earlier after my hunt guys. Special thanks to Trent for recommending the .204 Ruger. Those little guys didn't stand a chance. I really felt bad at times. Another Dang 9 I was mostly shooting out to 300 yards. I did go out to 310-330 on a couple of shots. The gun shot superbly. ...

Re: Heavy 6mm bullets

Kevinbear, Thanks for asking this question because my uncle gave me his old 243 rifle. It needs a new barrel and possible new stock. That's why I got it. I was wondering about using it for silhouette shooting with the heavy bullets ( 107-115 ). If not I don't know what I will use it for except pract...

Re: 162 Amax available at Able Ammo

DennisC,
I understand, but the cost will continue to climb for the foreseeable future I'm afraid. I think some members are correct about casting bullets. I don't know when the madness will end. This sport could potentially wind up being very expensive to compete in.
