Topics I've Started

Getting ready for this year's big game season.

Kentucky Longrifle in .50 that I built.  I pulled a Doe tag and a Elk Cow tag for muzzle-loader season this year.  I am excited. 




The barrel was "plum browned" rather than blued.  The stock was dipped in behren's cherry solution and then had 3 coats of tang oil finish applied.  The brass was hand brushed over a period of a few weeks to give it a light green patina with a vinegar solution.  Right now, I can shoot a 240gr solid lead conical and hit a coffee can repeatedly at 100 yards.  That's minute of elk/deer in my book. 


I figured that I had taken animals with high power long range firearms with high magnification optics.  It was time for me to do it the hard and more traditional way.

Picked up a well used Marlin 1895 GBL.  Added an XS scout rail with ghost ring and front sight ramp. Coupled with a 2-7x scout scope.  Stocks were in rough shape, varnish was coming off.  So today I caught a bug and went for broke.  I don't think it looks too bad.  I will be sending the 325gr FTX down range.

Starting to get my stuff together for the .223.  I am going to go a different route pertaining to my bullet selection.  I have seen so many "splashes" with ballistic tipped bullets, and quite honestly they are expesnive.  I have decided on a 55gr soft point for predators.  Does anyone have a good load worked up for this type of bullet.  I will be using CCI large rifle primers.  Any specific powder that one would suggest?  Not looking for stupid long range either.  300 yards max maybe.
