    Caliber selection for small frame hunter

    A very effective but light recoiling cartridge is the .350 Legend. Kicks less than the .30-30, .243 and 6.5 to my shoulder. We have killed about 10 deer over the last 4 years with them and they are completely adequate for deer size game.

    Keep .280 Rem or sell for something else?

    My .308 is the only real lightweight. It is a Savage UL, under 6 lbs without the scope and I have a light fixed 6x on it.

    Keep .280 Rem or sell for something else?

    I have a 7mm-08, 6.5 CM and .308. I love the .280 but as much for the rifle as the cartridge. Mine is a Cooper and shoots spectacularly. The others are great too but if were to go after bigger game, like elk or moose, I would probably reach for the .280. I have handholds specifically for...

    Do Thermal and Night Optics Have a Role in Home Defense?

    Home invasion - likely not. Home defense, i.e. roving mob - I think it very well might have a role there.

    A good electronic powder dispenser/scale.

    I have a RCBS Chargemaster and like it quite well. Much faster than hand weighing.

    Bullet seating depth question

    Maybe get a bullet comparator for your micrometer and make your handloads the same as your best shooting current load.

    308 Hunting ammo for AR10?

    Get hunting bullets, not match bullets. As suggested above, buy several different loads and see which shoots the best in your particular rifle. Inside 300 yards, if the tip is a bit deformed from loading, it will not matter.

    Trifocals for shooting open sights?

    The shooting glasses from SSP work well with a magnifier in the top instead of the bottom of the glasses. And not very expensive.

    Win Deer Season XP - thoughts and initial performance

    I agree, we have taken about 8 deer in the last few years with these bullets from the .350 Legend. Accurate, inexpensive and effective.

    Respect (or lack there of) for older Gun Writers

    Interesting thread. I have read/own a number of books from those "old school" writers and still find their information and experiences interesting. Are there new techniques? Sure. Does that mean everything that has been previously written on shooting and self defense is obsolete, I don't...
