    Smokeless build

    Same load basically that I'm shooting. You're not running that out of an Omega conversion are you? What action, Remington 700 CF, 700 ML, or large shank savage? What ignition are you using? I'm still using 209, it works just fine for me and is simple. I know the trend lately is to use LMRP module ignition systems. Just curious.

    Smokeless build

    I agree, I would skip the sabots they are nothing but trouble with smokeless pressures. Honestly for what you are trying to do smooth forming would be my suggestion. It's very easy to size them and loading is a breeze as well. I'm shooting a 275 grain Parker just over 3000 FPS. I could push it harder, but there's really no need. This load is a little over 5000 ft-# of energy at the muzzle and the ballistics are really great.

    Smokeless build

    I built one using a Remington 700 ML action a few years back. It has a Brux barrel and radial brake on it. It's on the heavy side, but is one of the best shooting firearms I own. I think next time I would skip the break, as it's a pain to load through and the noise is awful... I used Luke at Arrowhead sporting goods for my barrel and other parts and he was great to work with. What are your plans for bullets? Are you planning on still using sabots, or are you going to smooth form or full form your bullets?

    Corn and deer

    I think the points made about corn being bad for deer are valid in the Adirondack areas and southern Catskills, in central and western NY where it is primarily ag country it's a moot point as it's part of their regular diet.

    What About a Limited Draw?

    I feel this should be covered by what is called a habitat stamp (in many states). This habitat stamp would be part of your regular purchase of a hunting license. What this would do is require others that use public property to help fund it by requiring they have a habitat stamp. As it is, the majority of the money that is used to fund public property is funded by hunting license sales, however there are many people using public property without a hunting license (ie. hikers, skiers, bicyclers ect.). I'm not saying they shouldn't be using public property for these activities, I just feel they should be helping to fund it like the hunters are. As far as the other part of the conversation about adjusting deer hunting regulations. I feel if they changed to a 1 buck limit without attaching it to any implement, along with reducing the length of firearms season (maybe a split season) and moving it out of the rut, then you would see some gains in age structure of whitetail buck. Just my $.02

    New rifle.. What scope??

    I'm a fan of leupold as well, but would also consider a 3-9x40 trijicon for this rifle. You can get either a standard type duplex or a post type reticle, and the glass is pretty nice in them.

    Crossbow string mishap

    Interesting, I had that same model and decided to upgrade. Sold mine to a friend and he had the string break as well. This xbow hadn't been shot more than 30-40 times either...

    The Neighbors Corn Pile

    So you're saying that someone can fly a drone over my fenced in back yard and spy on my sun bathing wife and there is nothing I can do about it? I don't think so...

    The Neighbors Corn Pile

    It's actually illegal to fly drones over peoples property without permission, so that's out too.

    The Neighbors Corn Pile

    Serious question, is the deer feeder you can see one of the automatic feed ones? Did he maybe use that to throw feed to said chickens daily instead of having to dump a 5 gallon bucket?

    The Neighbors Corn Pile

    You keep stating "what's right is right", but you have absolutely no proof that they did anything "wrong" you have totally assumed that part and have gone as far as comparing it to abuse of children. All you have done is heard second hand information about your neighbor and used that information to assume the worst of your neighbor. With the other statements you've made about them on hear it really sounds like you are jealous of them and are using that and your assumptions to justify calling the police on them for something that may or may not have even happened. I really hope I never have neighbors like you...

    The Neighbors Corn Pile

    On this one, I feel if you saw the bait in the field either from a property line or however it would be justified. Based off the information you have provided, you have no proof of wrong doing and really no justification for accusing the person of wrong doing. All you "know" (from a second hand source) is that he bought some corn from a local farmer, this happens all the time. Are you sure the guy doesn't have a couple of pig, or beef cows he's feeding? As stated, does he burn it for fuel? If myself and family had a cold and I went to the drug store and bought a bunch of cold medicine and you saw me are you going to call the police accusing me of making meth? Just asking...

    Vacuum sealers?

    I also have a vacmaster chamber sealer, it's night and day compared to the standard type vacuum sealers. I use the VP215.
