Post up your hunting rifle

The Armory seems to favor tacticool guns and whatnot, so why not get a hunting rifle thread going?


Post your deer/elk/whatever gun!



Heres mine, it s Kimber 8400 Chambered in 300wsm. I put a leupold VX-III on her. I love it, but my shoulder doesnt.

Not bad [relatively speaking... it's still a 405 grain solid .45-70 round]. I have a Pachmayr pad on it. It's a much lower impulse than say a 30.06 or something of that nature.

It's a popular caliber for reloading. I've read more than one story of people making some hot loads and ending up needing root canals.

They can be ridiculous and extremely long range accurate weapons. Especially the Sharps.

Shooting @ Rustic in LBK...

Two friends were shooting ARs at some metal pendulum targets at 200 yds. They were putting rounds on target and getting a *plink* and the plate would move a little...

First shot I took w/ the .45-70 (keep in mind a flat-tip 405gr bullet moving slowly needs a 3+ft holdover at that distance) made a *clunk* and got the plate swinging in a 2 ft arc.

Next shot just knocked it over


(plate stands are just up/right and up/left of the crosshairs)

That's crazy - I love .45-70's, ever fired a .45-70 revolver? But as far as long range accuracy, I've seen some 12" groups at 1250 yards through iron sights on a sharps.

And while browsing my photobucket page, I found this sent to me by sonic93, so I guess it's his "hunting gun".

.45-70 is becoming popular again as a great brush gun. My dad has both a Sharps and a Marlin guide gun. It is amazing what that round can do. My dad shot at a piece of 1/4" steel @ 75 yards and not only did the bullet go through but it actually tore the steel in places.

A friend of mine who has been on African safari hunts saw a guy take a .45-70 and kill two Cape Buffalo as the shot went through one and into another. IMO there is nothing on this planet that can walk through that cartridge.

Some of us prefer the advantage of semi automatics for hunting. They all have the same purpose. I intend to make some nice wooden furniture for my AR some day, whenever I can find the time to work on my own gun for once.

I like AR variants as much as the next guy, but If I took one to my deer lease then all the traditionalist old guys would frown upon it and give me some shit. I like the idea of a semi auto too, but most of my blinds are set up within 100 yards of the feeder so one shot from my WSM anywhere to the animal will be a kill shot within reason. I do believe that your AR10 is a perfect hog gun though.

If I was going to buy a semi for deer then it would probably be a BAR like in the above photos. Those things are absolutely beautiful!

I just built it for hogs, I wouldn't deer hunt with it. Rem 700 for that. I could care less what other people's opinions of me are. Let's compare them in the only thing that matters - accuracy and effectiveness at hunting.
