  1. Year 22 for me. split between NY and PA (some years both).
  2. 1. Get my ~4.5 year old son out for a sit/walk or two during deer season (if the weather cooperates). 2. Fill the freezer (2-3 deer) as fast as possible (wife is due with our third boy on 12/30, but there is no way she makes it that long). 3. Get my dad on a deer (last year was the first time in 5 years of coming to NY that he didn't get at least one doe). 4. Explore new areas to hunt (especially if there's snow on the ground). 5. Booner or bust...
  3. It also references "off-road vehicles" and "equipment operations" yet fails to define the scope of those statements... I need to kick the retirement savings into high gear and move back to my home state of PA before this hot garbage comes to fruition.
  4. my Model 70 absolutely loves that bullet. I've taken 7 deer with it. All pass throughs with the furthest making it maybe 70 or 75 yards. Wish they were a bit cheaper, but finding some for $30/box shipped to my door made me ecstatic given the current ammo situation.
  5. Found a banner deal on gunbroker for 243 barnes ttsx rounds. More than happy to pay below normal asking price for factory sealed boxes.
  6. Compared to last year's fuster cluck, I was happy to see mine in the mail yesterday.
  7. I'm in a similar situation. Places are offering me 78-80% or original sticker for a 2019 F-150 with ~35k miles. I don't really want to deal with the current car market, but with a third kid due in December I don't have a choice.
  8. Is he looking for 2.75 or 3"? I know I have a few boxes that I could spare.
  9. BAR is probably one of your best options. I know they used to make Remington 7400 Woodsman in .243. You could also do an AR build from DPMS, but you might be waiting quite a while to get all the parts you need to assemble.

    Barnes bullets

    I shoot the 250 grain TMZ sabots.
  11. Finally was able to let the muzzleloader bark Friday afternoon with the new BH209 and Barnes combo. Looked like they were just up and causally feeding along the hillside. 75 yard pass through (you're looking at the exit) and she piled up at about 30 yards. Wish I would have weighed her before I started skinning, she may have been my largest doe to date.
  12. I thought they had a fire at their facility last year and haven't been able to get back on their feet due to several supply chain challenges posed by the pandemic
  13. You were spot on in your comments. 75 yards with a complete pass through. Went maybe 30 yards from impact site with a pretty solid blood trail even without snow. You're looking at exit on that side.

    Barnes bullets

    It took me a little over a month to find the Barnes sabots I was after this summer. I will say they work as well as advertised in my only experience with them this season. Good luck finding them!
