    Kimber 84M and Talley Xtra Low

    Switched out the Extra Lows to Lows on my 84 M with Leupold VX-Freedom 2-7x scope. Bolt handle would clear the scope if run carefully, but would rub slightly if worked hard. It still worked fine, but I didn't like the contact.

    US Canada Border close to re-opening?!

    True, we have very recently swung that metric in our favour - still way behind in two dose full vaccination rate though. (4% vs 40%)

    US Canada Border close to re-opening?!

    We can only hope. As a Canadian it is disheartening see our vaccination effort lag so far behind the American plan. I spend a lot of time in the Adirondacks of NY and the Whites of NH - really missed those trips the last 1.5 years. I have heard from friends in the Yukon that the territorial...

    1st Time Archery Elk ... Max Distance

    Important to consider actual residual energy as well. Hitting the mark is one thing, driving the arrow through the vitals for a clean kill is another. Worth considering the terrain for post-shot tracking. Wide open terrain where you can watch the bull run after the shot for hundreds of...

    An "upgrade" question - my Kimber Montana / Mountain Ascent

    A question for those who have handled/used both rifles. Last year I picked up a used Kimber Montana custom chambered in 280 Remington (not AI) with a 24 inch Lilja heavier contour barrel. It's been a very nice rig. I have a chance to buy a basically new (40 rounds at the range) Mountain...

    Swarovski ATX 65 spotter tripod attachment question

    Which specific plate? My ATX isn’t marked “AS” for Arca Swiss. Is the foot shown in my photo an Arca Swiss?

    Swarovski ATX 65 spotter tripod attachment question

    Hello all. I purchased a used Swarovski ATX 65 in 2019 - it had barely been used by the previous owner. I was advised by a local Swarovski dealer that a Manfrotto tripod they had on hand would work for the scope. However, I was never happy with the security of the attachment (it just didn't...

    Montana elk hunting is about to take a dive

    *** Just found the info in the thread above - emails sent! Does anyone have the actual email addresses to contact? I'd be happy to jump in, but I'm a Canadian and you need a valid U.S. address for the BHA auto-generator. I participate in the Montana draw system and is this yet another...

    2019 Ontario bull moose hunt

    With moose seasons soon poised to open across much of their North American range, I thought I would put up this hunt story from 2019 for those who might be interested. The hunting deities smiled on me with the drawing of a rare Eastern Ontario bull moose tag (any weapon) in 2019. In Ontario...

    First backpack hunt, first archery harvest, AZ Coues

    In fairness to Sobrbiker, this thread probably wasn't the best place to express my increasing frustration with the volume of long range archery shooting (much of it very poor) I've seen photos/video of this fall. It's been a miserable week all around and this thread caught me at the wrong time...

    Pennsylvania public land bucks

    Some very nice deer. How much do big PA bucks weigh dressed out typically? Curious how they compare to other areas of the Northeast.

    Broadhead choice

    Good evening all. Canadian Rokslider here. Although I've been shooting a compound bow for 20 years, I haven't done much actual bowhunting. My first decade of bowhunting I was determined to hunt from the ground and stalk/stillhunt an animal. Anyone familiar with the "big woods" knows this is a...

    7mm Remington Magnum - 23 inch barrel

    Good evening Roksliders. An attractively priced Tikka T3x SL in 7mm Rem Mag has come across my path. The owner bought it new and cut the barrel down from the factory 24.3 to 23 inches even. It’s an enticing deal, but I am a bit concerned the shorter barrel will create too much muzzle blast...

    Kimber Montanas and Husqvarna

    Thanks everyone. I took both Montanas to the range today and was reminded how much I enjoy them. Even though I'm not able to use them afield as much as I would like, I definitely would miss them if sold. They are the perfect rifle for how I hunt in many ways. They'll be staying in my gun safe.

    Kimber Montanas and Husqvarna

    Need to crowd source some opinions here. Unfortunately, due to inflexible work commitments and short local rifle seasons I spend much more time archery and muzzleloader hunting than rifle hunting. I have two Kimber Montanas - a 257 Roberts and a 280 Remington. They are great rifles, but...

    Accessories questions - Ma Deuce / 44 Mag

    I'll be purchasing a new Kifaru setup shortly (Duplex Lite frame plus Stryker, 44 Mag, and Ma Deuce) to cover every foreseeable hunting circumstance for quite some time to come. I'm set on the bags, just have a few questions about accessories. I have a unique opportunity to set myself up...

    Top two mountain cartridges

    Well, I came across a Kimber Montana in 257 Roberts so my two mountain rifles are set for the time bring between it and my Montana 280 Remington. Until I decide I need another ...

    Montana public land questions

    I shifted gears and did an extended whitetail deer hunt in the Adirondacks instead. My wife and I both had extended time away from work and one of our shared "dream destinations" was Nepal (specifically Mount Everest Base Camp). To make that work from a financial perspective I had to shift...

    7MM-08 Non Lead Ammo

    I've used both Barnes Vortex 120 grain and Federal Trophy Copper 140 grain on whitetail deer and mountain goat. Great results from both.
