I try not to make it to Anchorage often but when I do I check everywhere I can, Great Northern Guns was about the best bet before they closed last fall but theybwould not let you pay by CC and hold it for even a day, Face to face only, I do have friends that check the normal places for me every time they go up,
Sportsmans Warehouse got some in this week but nothing useable in the 375. They did have 1 pound of BLC-2 I can use in the 308 Encore & some H-110. Since you can only purchase 1# total per day I took the BLC-2. If there is any H-110 left tomorrow I will grab a pound.
And nice little earthquake while typing, Guessing about a 5,0, You miss them? :-)

Pretty nice goat Ernie !


What part of the state do you live in?
I have lived in Spur, Panhandle, and Lubbock in the past, and my wife grew up in the Houston area.
Antelope are so unique, and their demeanor can be odd or funny-Really cool animals. They are not my favorite wild game to eat though.
Elk still gets the nod there.

I ask because of the heavy forend on the one. Wondering if that was to help with recoil.
I have an Encore in 308 that I have been shooting factory Nosler 165gr Accubonds through it but havent chronographed them. I have factory furniture & wondered how the recoil compares. I was looking for an '06 barrel when I picked up the 308. Figured the 06 would require a brake for my tender hands.


The full fore end and bull barrel is the .260. That is a fore end made for sand bags. That guns has shot some groups under 1/4". The 3006 is pretty consistent shooting 1/2" groups. It is much easier to carry. The 3006 will get your attention but it isn't abusive. The absolute worse loads in it are comparable to a .500 Linebaugh. My general loads are like the hottest 44 mag you can imagine.

I am really liking this setup and am very happy with the velocity of the 200 grainers. I am hoping that this rig will do it all from big to small.

Re: BFR Revolver Old vs. New bearskinner 01/08/2022 3:55 PM
I had a 475L BFR 15 years ago, and absolutely hated the feel and balance. Yes, at least to me, grip feel makes ALL the difference.
I recently picked up a Bisley gripped BFR that a friend was using. Huge difference. I have a new Bisley BFR now

Yes it is. I counted yesterday. I rotated 11 guns this year. I usually carry one scoped and one open sighted gun together. It works well.

Re: Scored a nasty old buck with Encore reflex264 01/04/2022 2:35 PM
Thanks guys. I passed on a 3.5 year old 8pt the day before because I saw another mature buck. It would have been nice to add another 140" buck but I am tickled with this old guy.

Re: Hunting with a 9mm Drycreek3189 01/04/2022 2:58 AM
Not much experience with a 9mm but Iíve killed several hogs with a .40 and more with a 10mm. Hogs tend to be tough if you donít hit them in the right place the first shot.

I would for sure hunt up a good bullet and shoot +P loads and restrict my shots to bow ranges.

Re: PROJECTS! gunslingerdad 12/30/2021 4:38 AM
recently picked up a ruger flattop 4 5/8" bisley in 44 special for my wife- looked all over for a mount for it as she will not shoot it open sighted at game. i finally drilled and tapped it and refabbed a weaver base to get it shooting. worked out great and shoots lights out.
project two is a savage striker rebarrel from 7-08 to 358 win. i ordered a stock from jim rockwell and a ER shaw barrel with a magnum contour. Chuck Williams cut down the barrel and put on a radial brake. still needs some stock profiling and final finish but it.

building some knives to fill a few orders so not much down time if i dont want to watch the hallmark channel
