    For the last year I have been getting into hunting. It all started with archery. Now it has rolled into quail and duck. Now I am dying to take a deer and javalina. So I called my dads uncle last week (he used to be an avid hunter) and started discussing caliber with him. It seems that everyone wants an all purpose gun to hunt everything. He starts telling me the differences between them all. The one thing he did say though was shot placement. You can take almost anything down with a good shot placement. What I am getting too with my drawn out story is this is what showed up today. My dads uncle is the best ever!!!!:D :D :D


    Jimbo from CK5 sent me these snares!!! Thanks again Jim!:D
    The first one is a winchester model 70 .270 caliber. I think I am going to love this one!
    Second is a savage 300.
    Third is a marlin 30/30.
    I would love to tell you what the last one is but there are no marks on it at all telling the brand but it is a 30-06.

    .41mag is a sweet round. Congrats on the new arsenal. I am hoping to go hunting next year in AZ if I can get drawn.

    Haven't shot it yet but shot the .270 and it was awesome. The bad thing about the .41 mag is finding ammo:(

    throw up some closeups of the action and floorplate on the '06. Somebody ought to be able to give you a pretty good idea of what it is.

    If you are going to shoot often you need to invest in a reloader. Even a single stage press like a RCBS Rock Chucker would do great for the calibers you have. I reload all my rifle & revolver ammo on the RCBS Rockchucker at my dads house. It saves you money if you are shooting on a regular basis & it gives you control of what your gun digests & is 100% tuneable.

    It is pretty easy. I taught myself how to reload when I was 13 years old with a couple reloading manuals.

    Thats the plan. Have a free one coming for the 20 gauge. I always pick up my brass regardless if reloading or not. I don't like to litter where I hunt!:D

    More pics of the top of the last one please. Looks like a sporterized "something", Mauser, maybe? I love used guns, the come with character. I just picked up a used Ithaca model 37 12Ga for $200. When I got it home, and cleaned it up, I was surprised at how 'clean' it was. There was a tiny spot if surface rust under the slide on the barrel, but I took care of that, and the thing looks brand new! I hope I can knock some quail out of the sky with it.

    Nice Savage 99, too. I've got one from just after the turn of the century that was my grandpas. Ditto on reloading. I've been reloading since I was a kid. Once you get into it, it's awesome to tailor a load to a particular rifle, and have it drive tacks.
