    Getting A Little Closer To My Lifetime Goal.

    I feel left out....I considered changing my screen name..Then I discovered that Runt, Midget, Shorty and Squirt are all taken....<< SIGH>>…..
  2. I don't hunt deer with a .223, but I wouldn't hesitate if it was all I had...I would, however use a more stoutly constructed bullet in 55 or 60 grains, like a Nosler partition or a Barnes X type... .22 centerfires are quite popular for deer for in some areas of the country, and there are bullets for them designed specifically for hunting deer sized game...
  3. I am a great believer in the old axiom " If it works, don't fix it".... I have no issue with hunting deer with a .223, as long as you place the bullets where they belong... However, it puzzles me why anyone would choose a bullet expressly designed as a highly frangible projectile for varmints ( that's what the V in VMax stands for) when there are many other more stoutly constructed bullets available for the .223.. It might make the difference in a clean kill animal vs a wounded animal should you just be a little off and hit a shoulder blade..

    At least your dog got to cool off...Looking forward to meeting him/her...I am definitely a dog person, and have had them all my life, until moving into a house on a main street in town....I miss having a dog...

    That place is good all summer, isn't it ? I could be there in about two hours...You guys would have to promise not to laugh at my lack of skill with a fly rod, however...Hehehe...
  11. That reminds me of a story... I was out squirrel hunting years ago and I ran into a guy in the woods with a whole sack full of squirrels and NO GUN... When I got up close to him, I realized he was the UGLIEST person I had ever seen..Downright PAINFUL to look at.... I couldn't resist asking him how he got all those squirrels with no weapon.. He told me " I just UGLY them to death...I sneak up real close, and when they see my face they just drop over dead"... I asked him " Does anyone else in your family have this talent ?" He told me.. " I took my wife hunting a couple of times, but I had to quit taking her...She tears 'em up too bad.."....

    My ex-wife told me I was rude, insensitive and selfish.... I told her " Honey, you knew I was an asshole when you MARRIED me !!"...
  13. It wasn't for any lack of performance by the Nosler BTs... A lot of guys on the forum I was hanging out on at the time were singing the praises of the Barnes 120 grain TSX in the 7MM08... Just for shits and giggles, I tried them, and loved the results....I just stuck with them in my 7MM08 and eventually tried them in my .280 and my 9.3 x 62, with equally pleasing results...I can't say they kill any better than the Nosler BTs, because dead is dead...I'll say that in my rifles they are as accurate, kill equally as well and probably do less meat damage than the Noslers... That said...I could switch back to the Noslers tomorrow and probably never see any difference as far as meat on the ground...

    25 years ago...chasing a Bronco

    He was just out searching for the REAL killer....
  15. They are also the first bullet I'll try for accuracy...Tough to find a more accurate hunting bullet in many rifles...
