I had honestly forgot about Browning making this pump as I had only ever seen 1 other one. It wasn't until I noticed it lacked a charging handle that I figured out what it was.
There's some real gems on there for sure. At least 3 or 4 times a week I see a comment about insurance companies and the PGC stocking coyotes. Another guy claimed he had a video of a mountain lion but the game warden confiscated it and threatened to arrest him if he showed it to anyone.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

I got a set of dies coming and a vortex crossfire. Debating now if i should take my leupold Vx1 off my ar and put it on the bpr and put the vortex on the ar.
I would be very happy with that accuracy from a factory rifle/ammo.

Good luck, Tony

I will never understand the hunters and/or firearm owners who are anti-semi? The FACTS are easy to find, and prove that semi's are not any more dangerous in hunting situations then any other type firearm. While I personally could care less about their personal (uneducated) opinions on the subject, I hate the fact that every time they write their anti-semi non-sense on the web they are supporting and/or agreeing with the anti-gun people/organizations.

Good luck, Tony

I have not taken my 300WM hunting in many years. I started a tradition that once I shoot a deer with a rifle it gets retired. Before that my 300WM was my go to rifle and I took many deer with it. The one I use is not a Weatherby MkV, it is a Remington 700 Classic. I think it was the late 1980's or early 1990's when Remington chambered the Classic in 300WM. I had always wanted a 300WM but the price of the MkV was out of my budget back then, so when Remington released the Classic it made the cartridge affordable to me. Someday I hope to have rifles chambered in all of the Weatherby cartridges. Currently I have the .240, .257, .300, .340, and .416. My next will probably be a MkV 300WM or .270WM.

Good luck, Tony

Put the new scope on it, im pretty impressed with the vortex. Im usually a leupold snob, but for 130 bucks and free rings cant say no! Hopefully it holds up. I will be loading up some 150gr eldxs and some 140gr nosler etips to shoot tomorrow. Hopefully have a better target than the factory ammo to post up! I just absolutely love this gun, it fits me like a glove.
