A Well Regulated Militia...

That's a nice looking rifle, BD!  I would have guessed sportorized Mauser, not Ruger. I like the rear sight much better than the leaf-spring sight. That would be a lot more accurate.  No Glass?

 

Not on that girl - she is a field marksmanship rifle... that may do a little freezer fillin' along the way.

 

Now, her big sister...?

 

In 9.3x62...?

You guys are killing me with these pictures!
WTH do you live, BD?
I want to come shoot with you

 

Current Project has me in the nicer weather version of Hell.

 

When I get back to Free America, and the Great State of Louisiana, I'll invite you down for a shoot - and maybe a little fishin' out in the Atchafalaya basin.

The 9.3x62 is an interesting cartridge to shoot.

Looks about like a 30-06.  What's so interesting about it?  Personally, I really try to stick with easy to obtain cartridges when I purchase rifles.  I don't do any big game hunting, though. And, I am trying to stay away from hand loading.   Been there, done that - ends up costing me more money, time and space than its worth.

The 9.3x62 - is an elegant cartridge that brings enough energy and penetration to kill a Cape Buffalo, in an 8.5 lb scoped Std. length action rifle and a cartridge slightly bigger than a 30-06.

 

And it's shoot-able - but just.

 

PPU loads inexpensive ammo for it that works fine for practice and hogs. - that is re-loadable for serious hunting.

I've never seen a Cape Buffalo around these parts!  Just Deer, Coyote, Rabbit 'n Turkey.  Oh, and occasionally Black Bear when they aren't being skittish eating our feed.   I mostly use a 30-06 for hunting - it does the job (a little overkill ) and it's easy.  I just figure fancy cartridges cost fancy money, especially when you are trying to get a feel for the gun and sighting in your scope.  Then you have to get into hand-loading, and I avoid that like I do Covid-19. 

 

I used to reload 22-250 cartridges when I used to shoot a lot of that.   Several things I've learned since then:  More is not better.  Brass does not last forever.  Super hot loads turn bullets into led shards upon exiting the muzzle.  The shoulders of necked-down, high powered rifle cartridge cases really deform beyond being reloadable but I didn't care.  Remington 700's can take a lot of stupid abuse without blowing up.

That was great!

Possible.

 

More likely the advice of Creepy "shotgun" Joe.

 

Ha!

Idiots buy stuff just because it makes them feel good about it.  Most serious gun owners have enough ammo to last their lifetimes and most of their kids' lifetimes too. It's all stacked up next to the toilet paper.

no sir you are the exact opposite 

 

You seem to be a large font ignoramus.

 

But even a blind squirrel gets lucky on occasion.

 

So I will patiently wait for an actual fact or truth from you.

 

As you will not recognize it, will be sure to point it out.

And, neither of them has the 2nd Amendment.  I'm sure those Arab Israelis are glad Israel has a well regulated militia of the government and not of the people!
