First day firearm?

It's that time again...

I plan on taking a Number One in .303 British with a 1.75-6x36 Leupold on top....

Re: First day firearm?

I've been changing things up from year to year now. Normally it's my model 6 243. Last year it was my mossberg 12 gauge slug gun.

This year I'm going to take the 760 in 270. I'll take the GP100 as well.

Re: First day firearm?

M700ADL in 25-06 that I bought used in 1978, shooting 100gr Btips.

Same piece o' junk Bushnell 4x12 that I put on it almost 30 years ago. Somehow, it'll still shoot MOA after all this time?



Designated "doe gun" this year, is a Rossi M92 clone in 44 mag, with 24" oct. barrel and shooting the same 200gr XTP loads that I've used in my M629. Know how well they've worked on deer from the pistol, we'll maybe see how they do from the longer barrel?

Best wishes to all for a dandy deer season.

Either my Marlin XL7 in /06 or my gf's Savage .270. Most likely the .270 since no rain and then switch to the /06 in rain or snow.

I won't be able to get out the first few days, but the rest of the season I will be carrying my new model 700 mountain rifle in 280. I can't wait to use it and see how it performs.

A 260 topped with a 2.5x10 4200.

Now all I need then is the dumbest deer on the mountain to find me!

Weatherby .270 w/ Simmons 3x10x50. That is after my 8 year old gets to hunt the first two days. He is shooting a H&R .223 with a 3x9x32 and 64 grain nosler partitions.
