Picked up a Stevens 555e sporting, hopefully get out next Friday and try it. Shouldered a couple and ended up back at the Stevens.

Yeah I figured so but thought a little more fire power might not hurt lol maybe just an excuse to buy a gun

Budman, if your looking for a reason to buy a new rifle all good.  Truth be told your 270 will kill any black bear that walks the face of the earth.  They are actually not hard to put down, I've seen many take a dirt nap with the ole 30-30.

I drew my wisconsin bear tag this year and am looking for a 300 or 308 for that hunt.  Biggest caliber rifle I own is 270.. not looking for a top of the line but a solid gun in the southern wisconsin area
Thank u

Budman What are you looking for? 

Most all of us have "Safe Queens" that never see the light of day. I have trimmed my collection significantly.

Did have a chance to fire that AR7 recently with some Rem Hi-Speed. As expected, the rifle is no tackdriver. Initially fired it at 15yds and the groups were not very good at all. Bullet impact was 3" left of POA and there is no way to adjust for windage. Seems I will need to have my gunsmith make me up a new sight after I take some measurements and send him a sketch. Not really disappointed though, it went bang.

Is it against code of conduct to ask if anyone would part ways with a particular gun? I'm going to check local gun shops but thought am all here wouldn't hurt.. thank u moderators

G-man thanks for the guidance. I'm not hunting for fur, but wouldn't mind a cool Yote Hat.

I will give the hollow points a try and will practice with some 55 grain FMJ to dial it in. 
(60 cents per round at Dunhams)

Thanks again, 
Mac

Mac, you have a 1:8" twist barrel and it will likely not handle "varmint" ammo real well as it will spin the projectile into dust. The cores are too soft and the jackets are too thin. Buy a box of std 55gr soft point ammo from Winchester, Federal and Remington. See which one shoots the best in your rifle and stick to it for fox/coyote. It will do everything you need it to do.

If the ammo, the rifle and the operator are capable, it is possible to get 1 MOA accuracy (1" for every 100yds) using a 4X optic.

Picked up a Ruger 556 AR. Got it to group to about and inch at 50 yds. Now looking to spend some time and powder at the range dialing it in at 100 yds.

Any suggestions on fairly priced ammo? Will try and knock over a Yote with it as soon as I feel I can shoot it well.

I have a 1X4 power illuminated Vortex scope on it, this should help act like a red dot at close range and still reach out past a 100 yds, for clean-kills. What should I expect to hold as far as MOA with a 4 power scope?

Thank, Mac

Stopped by a friend's home yesterday and he gave me an older AR-7 rifle, just because. It's one of the older Armalite rifles, not the newer Henry AR-7. This one has seen plenty of use and the bore is as bad as I have ever seen on a 22lR. Sooo, I just need to hunt down a disassembly video (not at all like the Henry AR-7) and give it a full detailing, front to back. Will bring back the bore with plenty of solvent and a phosphor bronze brush, as best as possible. Then, it will get a good range day with several brands/lots of ammo to see what yields a reasonable degree of accuracy for what it is. It won't be a benchrest rifle no doubt. .

I picked up a new high velocity projectile dispenser yesterday. Just a little plinker. Probably put the rail on it that came with it for a red dot that I already have. 
Ruger 10/22. Stainless barrel, synthetic stock. I've wanted one for a while and went to Bass pro because I had quite a few points on my CC.

Had one of first Ruger 77/17 rifles when they first came out. Hornady was the only ammo available and I had to test several lots of their 17HMR ammo before I found one that really shot. Like any rimfire, try a couple of 22LR brands and ammo lots to find what shoots. Then stock up on a year's supply once you find one that really works well.
