My daughter- Model 70 7mmWSM with reduced recoil handloads shooting 120gr Nosler Ballistic Tips

Me- depends on when you catch me, lol.

When with my daughter- either my pre64 M70 in 30-06 or pre64 M70 in 270, carrying my Smith & Wesson 57-1 in 41 Mag as well. I haven't decided which rifle yet, but the 41 goes for sure.

On my own....probably just the 41 Mag or my custom long rifle (flintlock), 62-cal. I took some days off work to hunt in rifle season, and when she's in school, I will use the flintlock or the revolver.

Attached will be a liberty mystic x suppressor. For the public lands I go to with friends will be using my Remington 30-06 with 180 grain hornady .

I will be using a Remington 673 .350 Rem. mag. with 225 grn Accubond for the first shot and 200 grn Hornady SP for back up shots. I can only use the Accubonds for the 1st shot because they will not fit in the magazine well because they are too long. I load them manually into the chamber. When I unload I have to pull the bolt. They are worth the trouble. One in the lungs and lights out right now.

My number one this season will be my old Savage pump 30-30 with 150 gr. Hornandy American Whitetail. My backup will be my sportorized Swedish Mauser 6.5x55 loaded with 140 gr. Hornandy Super Performance. Usually it's the reverse but this year I wanted to change it up a bit.

Maybe the 7600 in 35 whelen, maybe the 260 mountain rifle, maybe the 280 mountain rifle, or possibly the 257 Roberts mountain rifle if the weather is really nice. Many more to choose from but at this point that's what I have it narrowed down too.
