    Sheep rifle attributes?

    Thank rfurman24. I guess I am just a little confused after reviewing the thread. You state that you are already familiar with exactly what you want form a rifle, so not sure what you are trying to elicit from other forum members. To be clear I am not trying to stir the pot or make myself a...

    Tikka caliber?

    From what you described the 308 is what I would go with. I'm guessing your familiar with the ballistics of the 165 gr already. Cutting down the barrel to 20 in won't net as much velocity loss and the muzzle blast will not be as ignorant. You could get the barrel threaded at the same time as well...

    Opinions on a 20" barrel 308 for western hunting rifle?

    This guy put a lot of effort into answering that question. https://rifleshooter.com/2014/12/308-winchester-7-62x51mm-nato-barrel-length-versus-velocity-28-to-16-5/

    2019 sheep hunt gear list....hows it look?

    Don't listen to those that say dump the water filter if your not comfortable. I know folks who have got dysteria and it is not pleasant. For sure you can get a lesser weight filter and other items. Also Immodium is invaluable if you get the runs and weighs nothing. One of my partners spent half...

    Looking for an Alberta Sheep hunting partner

    Sheep hunting is a hard thing to get into and props for reaching out to the community. Sheep spots are fiercely protected by most hunters and it is very unlikely that your average guy is going to just drop you into his spot. If you don't have experience living off your back, are out of shape or...

    Favorite baselayers?

    For sure. My comment was in context of wearing long johns as the only layer.

    Favorite baselayers?

    I don't understand the manufacture of camo base layers. I go icebreaker merino in a light and heavy weight depending on season. Just my opinion but merino is way better for smell over a hunt. Not for animals but yourself and tent mate.

    Beauty! Although a downgrade in optics I think since this rifle rightfully sits in you kitchen space you should consider swapping to this COBRA system.

    Moving up leupold vx3i to Swarovski z3. Worth it???

    Aside from any glass differnces etc... will upgrading get you anything you feel you are missing in you current setup and desire? When you look at your rifle do you wish something else was up top? If you can't answer yes to both of these you probably won't be happy with the result.

    Looking for that Mountain Rifle out to 500 yards

    Not to take anything away from your sniper buddy, but I used to work in those circles and the focus is rounds on target. You need very little to kill humans and game is very different. All the advice you have so far is good. I will simply say shoot the cartridge you are most comfortable with for...

    Ti Goat Bivy

    Thanks for that it helps quite a bit. I use the bivy to camp out up high for chance at early morning shots. Usually a tarp is not an option as it is above tree line. Based on your feedback I don't think it would work out for my use. I currently have a surplus gortex bag and that works well. It...
