    Winter Storm

    Hopefully it will get some deer moving. But it may not be enough winter yet.

    6.8 Western

    Should find ammo for the 6.8 now. But, once the current pile is gone it may not see manufacture again for a long time, or by many at all. Extremely tough to get reloading components for too. I doubt that will get better. Shame, it is very interesting cartridge design.

    Unit 51 Elk

    Type 1 or 2 tag? I will be there near Crandall this upcoming week. Should be some snow when i get there but probably going to warm up and melt most all of it in next couple weeks. May snow again by the last week of Octobers end.

    Trying out new bullets this year

    SST bullets get an awful bad wrap from some people. I have used them for deer for years and have nothing to complain about. They almost always go straight down. Not a performer past 400yrds. though.

    Weatherby 2.0 back country

    Too many great rifles out there for less. I personally would build one at that price from a good off the shelf doner rifle. But that does take time.

    Wyoming Deer Question

    I made the mistake of thinking the deer and elk stayed high till weather pushed them out to search for food lower. Mostly because that is what I was told. WRONG.... Many mule deer will be just about any place they feel safe and have food to keep them happy. Some won't travel very far...

    Busted Bolt Handle

    Mild steel weld (acetylene torch) with silver solder. Wrapped in a wet rag and laid in a boll of cold water. Still holding and looking good. Sanded and buffed with abrasive compound.

    I would bring it home in your luggage. Wrap it up and seal in a plastic bag.

    Seeking resident hunting partner

    You can, as a nonresident, go into wilderness areas and do everything but harvest a big game animal. You can hike ,scout ,camp,hunt small game and coyotes. Just no big game...... .

    220 Swift Issue/ Question

    Douglass barrels aren't as talked about, but they do make and have installed barrels for some of the best shooters in the country for years. I believe their prices cannot be beaten. Maybe ask a local Smith about a cut and rechamber job to compare prices.

    220 Swift Issue/ Question

    A new barrel should run around 4-600 bucks installed and in either stainless or blued. That is the lower end of the scale, but shop around. Call the guys in West Virginia for the best price possible and quality work in my opinion.

    Road conditions question

    Back only works most of the time. Some vehicles don't have much clearance up front with brake lines or fender wells while turning. Sometimes ,if it's bad, all four chained up will save the day.

    Road conditions question

    The soil in many areas of Wyoming is very fine and almost like powder. I have been on beautiful dirt roads that turned into snot with a light shower of rain or snow melt. Bring chains and keep them handy.

    Busted Bolt Handle

    Don't feel too bad. I have broken two Remington bolts myself . No, I didn't use a hammer. Stuck hot load and a desperate, determined yank . I welded them back on myself.

    Breech plug cleaning

    I have used the torch tip cleaners too. But that was only after some serious crude needed to be cleaned out of the nipple and flash hole.

    Breech plug cleaning

    I chuck a shotgun bore brush in a drill. It clears the internal crude out great with hot water and some simple green degreaser.

    22-250 For Deer

    As all have already commented,,,,,, It will work, just not ideal choice. I have taken tons of kids out for their first deer. Many had .223 but by far most handled a .243 well and it does a great job of getting it done. I can highly recommend getting any younger hunter a .243 that you can buy as...

    6.5 prc

    The high ballistic coefficient bullets have definitely been a bit of an area for debate. Heavy bullets going faster doesn't equal magic. But I certainly can't claim to understand all the data and results I see for myself. Much less what some claim. So I understand the disbelievers. Many...

    Bird hunting near Sheridan?

    Thanks. We appreciate it and awfully lot. We probably will only hunt a couple days for birds. That's plenty enough of a start in the right direction to keep us busy.

    Bird hunting near Sheridan?

    We are definitely going on public. He can walk far enough. He just has trouble on steep and rocky terrain. We are not bird farm hunters.

    I am eager to put it to the test on game. The 156gr seams to really hold energy well out to 500yrds. Should be a fantastic deer cartridge for sure. I believe plenty of elk will be taken cleanly too. As long as people realize there limitations and the cartridges limitations. Should be fine on elk...

    Towed a jeep wrangler across Wyoming my last trip out. Wind ripped the fender flares off it near Ten Sleep.

    Would like to find some grouse and Hunns near the big horns south of Sheridan. Taking a disabled marine this October. Be great to have a general starting point. Thanks for any information.

    Only thing I don't like about my Howa, is the light barrel contour. It gets very hot after 6-7 shots. But the first three shots out of a cold bore group fantastic. I guess that isn't something to complain about.

    For Sale Free reloading components for kids

    Good to see some good people still post on this forum. Hoping you and your family all the best. I gave some brass to a guy I overheard trying to find stuff for his grandson, a while back. That's how I think it's supposed to work.

    Bolt wont pull back

    I would have a finishing reamer hand turned in it by a smith. Bet it won't be an ammo issue. It only takes a couple thousandths to be way too tight.

    HAVE YOU SHOT 5.56 AMMO THROUGH YOUR .223???

    I ran some through a bolt gun one day. It was no big deal. But an AR may have a hiccup or two in cycling. The only real difference is in pressure. But manufacturers load ammo at different pressure from one company to another all the time. Enter at your own risk...

    Definitely a bucket list hunt for me. Unfortunately I may hit the bucket hard before I can afford a buffalo hunt. Great looking mount. Congratulations....
