    Ebay issues

    This wasn't even the scope, it was just the mount!

    Ebay issues

    I'm not really sure where to put this discussion, but figured this was a good as any and wanted to get the work out. So I had some optics laying around that I didn't really need anymore an figured I would sell them to fund other items that I would get more use out of. Long story short, I put an ad on Ebay selling a vortex one piece offset scope mount, the type that hooks to a picatinny rail. I had this on one of my crossbows to get a little more eye relief. Anyway, had the ad up for 5-6 days and had many bids on it and then get an email from Ebay that the ad is canceled and has been removed! Look further into this and it is stated that since the item could "possibly" be used on an assault rifle that it violates their policy and that is why it has been removed! I beyond annoyed... so i called the assistance line and got into a true pi$$ing match with a lady on the phone over this. I asked her if they will be removing all scope rings, optics, ect. since all of them could "possibly" be used on an assault rifle, didn't get much of a response on that... Needless to say, I will not be doing any more business with fleebay and hopefully this word gets out to a few more and they will do the same.

    Tonight’s Powerball

    You have to turn the ticket in in the state it was purchased and pay the tax due for that state. The reason I know this is last spring when the powerball was big, I was in Florida on vacation and bought some tickets. When I got home and checked I had won a decent amount of money. I ended up taking another trip down later in the year to fish and turned my ticket in.

    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?
