  • The first guns my wife ever shot, the first guns she ever even touched were a Suppressed MP5 and full-Auto MAC 11, also Suppressed. She enjoyed shooting them both, but I can't help but think that every gun after will be a step down in regards to the experience she has.

  • Make sure you only shoot for groups instead of zeroing. Find the best bullet then zero the scope. When you get into longer ranges make sure to try and lay down with tour feet laying down to the ground and have as little amount of your hand on the rifle. I do a ton of long range shooting/hunting so those are things that definitely help.

    Dylan HarrisDylan HarrisMuaj më parë
  • With a rifle like that you should really put time into load development. Find the perfect load for that rifle. Takes time and isn't as cheap as box ammo but it will be worth it.

  • As for the bullet reference, I have done very well with Nozler Partition and Hornady ballistic tips. They do very well on elk and muley's. I also reload my own rounds. If you would like to learn it's not very difficult.

  • Hey Justin! I’ve tested a lot of types of ammo in my 308 and 300wsm but my favorites are Federal Premium with Berger Hybrid bullets and Hornady precision hunter ELDX. But as you know every rifle is different and you should experiment with multiple brands.

  • That's just un-American not to have a bolt action hunting rifle

    Mr. Unknown UserMr. Unknown User2 muaj më parë
  • I always had a poi shift down with my can. I would zero with it because 98% of the time I shoot suppressed. Plus federal match Ammo is kind of crappy. I would choose a couple different loads and you will see a tighter group.

    Mark GossMark Goss2 muaj më parë
  • The can shouldn’t open up your group. You should be zeroing with your can.

    Mark GossMark Goss2 muaj më parë
  • You can’t beat Hornady for the price of good quality ammo. I shoot long distance in 6.5 Creedmoor.

    James HarrisJames Harris2 muaj më parë
  • Try Hornady, light recoil 127 grain loads plenty of power for deer and hogs, a lot easier on the shoulder but avoid the military .308 ( 7.62X51) ammo as your tight tolerances will cause the brass to swell making removal of fired cases difficult.

    Ernest ClementsErnest Clements2 muaj më parë
  • I shoot a .308 for hunting as well. Started off using Hornady Superformance SST 150gr. Now I shoot Hornady Black 155gr. Much better grouping and performance but it all depends on the shooter and gun

  • Hey lfg, when it comes to a 308, the sweet spot for almost any rifle chambered in 308, a 168 grain bullet tends to shoot the best dont ask why but 2 of my rifles shoot best with that grain bullet

  • Hello LFG and OSG, Saw your last lake life family video. To help with those mosquitos ,have you considered building a bat box? I built one a few years back for a neighborhood couple. It actually helps alot on cutting down those mosquitos. Build a bat box and bats will come. Those bats will eat thousands of mosquitos in one night. Just a suggestion.

  • My .308 win LOVES the 168 ELDM from Hornady,in the 12 years I have had the gun, I keep trying new stuff.. and keep going back to the 168. I'm talking tight groups. .540 6 shot group at 200 yards.

  • Should have built a 6.5cm. Half the recoil, better ballistics, and a lighter bullet hits harder than a .308 due to bullet sectional density. The gun looks great. I had a .308 and made the trade! Get into reloading next! Another fun hobby that’s rewarding. Actually make your own ammo that the gun loves for a 1/3rd the price per round.

  • Love the looks of your rifle. My son in law bought a TC venture and shot sub Moa groups with it. He is budget conscious and I was skeptical. Time on the range changed my mind. I bought the venture II 30-06 24" barrel and with corlokts was shooting sub moa and that's with a Burris fullfield 3-9x. I don't think accuracy is affected much by short barrels but trajectory or bullet speed could be an issue at longer ranges. I have several rifles and shotguns in the $2k + range but this year I'm taking the $500.00 rig for deer and hogs. The main thing is that you are happy and should be. Beautiful.

  • Instead of leaving the eggs in the nest put a golf ball or if you have plastic Easter eggs close to the same size put them in there with a little dirt in them so they have a little weight. Make sure you glue the Easter eggs shut.

  • The New Zealand government is doing a major cull of tahr this year. They will just shoot them and leave them to rot on the side of mountains. It's not a very popular activity with the hunting community, as I am sure you will appreciate! :(

  • That is a beautiful rifle! One piece of advice I would give you is; do not lift your head off the stock between shots. You will get much more consistent results. Keep your cheek tight against that riser. Also Try lots of different ammo types. Every rifle is different!
