Savage Model 10 Predator in 22-250 with a eXplore optic 4X16X50 with Target Dot Reticle. The target dot is so small that it makes a coyote look like a German Shepard at 300 Yrds. I use Berger 62 gr. VLD HP.

I own a Thompson Center Encore, 223 with a Nikon Buckmasters 4.5 to 14. I haven't worked up a load yet and am new to all of this, so I'm listening very carfully!

I always carry way more gun than I need. The most important is carry none that are larger that you can shoot good, accurate shots will beat out bigger gun that you are afraid to shoot. The other part of the equation is get plenty of practice in the off season as well as the hunting season. Follow what the loading manuals say for bullet weight, length powder charge size and primers.
