Re: Sig Subsonic on deer??

Congrats on the venison heading to the freezer. There’s not a lot of velocity or energy to give shock with subs, think of them as pistol rounds. You really need rifle velocity, 2000 fps or so, for any kind of ‘shock’ to kick in. Check out gds’s thread on subsonic hunting, he and others share a wealt...

Re: My First 350 Legend Kill

I found a small chunk of lead at the entrance (through the backstrap, sadly) and of course no luck finding the rest of the slug. I imagine it would still work through a shoulder, but time will tell. I was hoping for a high shoulder/spine shot, but you take the good shot you are given! I’ve see bulle...

My First 350 Legend Kill

Killed my first 350 Legend deer yesterday evening with Winchester 150gr Extreme Point ammo. Big doe, about 20 yards, walking directly away from me. Rifle height was about 20 feet above. Impact was about 8 or so inches behind her shoulder and took out about three inches of her spine. Exited just to t...

Re: What mags for 350 Legend?

A second vote for CMMG. I have two and they seem to work well.

Re: Just to honor a good man

Sounds like Shorty was a priceless friend and wonderful character-of-the-world. May he rest in peace, and cook some heavenly ‘shine for the angels.

Re: 6mm ARC experience anyone?

supersport, I also am interested in it. And no worries about posting non-300blk stuff here. We tend to be open to new cartridges here, and not openly critical of anything else like some other cartridge specific forums! I actually have a 6ARC barrel on back order from Odin. No idea when I might see i...

Re: Help Support Long Range Hunting

I’m really liking my Nightforce NX8 2.5-20. I wish it had been offered in second focal plane when I got it, but that is an option now so you can take your pick.

Re: New guy here

Welcome Mauserdude,

I can’t help with reloading as I sold my gear 25 years ago. But others will no doubt have suggestions.

Are you interested in loads for hunting, defense, plinking, target, or...?

Cheers,
