  1. 11/19 deer hunt

    Watched my favorite kind of deer, a 100 lb lone doe, move across 250+ yds and stop 100 yds out into an opening. She took a step just as I squeeze the trigger. 168gr. 308 did what it does and dropped her at 5 yds. Bring home the meat~ ☺
  2. Norma expanding

    I've ordered small batch of Norma GT in 223, 308, and 6.5CM few months ago to try out. Put few rounds of 175gr 308 through my deer rifle after reconfirm zero with SP hunting ammo. Got 2440~ ish ft/s from 18" 1:11 barrel with low SD. Did under 1 MOA at 200 with ease. Like the ammo holder with...

  10. Third one this week......whistle pig!

    Warmth of afternoon sun brought one out. Only spotted handful of'em so far this season.
  11. Toyota engines...

    Most repairable engine failures don't come to me. Ones that suffered catastrophic failures do. Don't get to see too many normal overheated engines, often melted and seized. This one was bit painful, not the usual neglect and/ or abuse. Or end of service life. 2010 GX470 with 43k miles. Top...
