    35" offroad tire question

    Cooper AT3 XLT have been great tires on my Ford F150. Quiet on the highway and pretty good traction in most conditions. They have excellent sidewall protection. Cooper ST Maxx. I switched to these a couple years ago as I wanted a bit more aggressive tread. They are a little bit noisier...

    7mm 120 grain Nosler Solid Base Spitzers

    I used the Nosler solid-base boat-tails in my 30-06 (165 gr.), 280 Remington (140 gr.), 6mm Remington (100 gr.). I found the solid-base coattails held together nicely, penetrated well, and shot excellently in each of these rifles. I think they will perform nicely in your 7mm-08. I shot deer...

    7WSM Deer Bullet

    Great bullet those Accubonds. H4831 is what my father used in his 7mm Mag and all he ever used. It's a great powder and the H4831SC just makes it even better with getting more powder in a case.

    What kind of skinning knife do you use and why?

    I used a Benchmade mini-Barrage on my grizzly bear hunt in Alaska in 2019. I had a Ruana 5AD made for my guide as part of his tip. He loved the knife and that's what he used on the bear also. Attached is a Ruana 5AD which is mine. I love the knife and the size. It's not too big nor too...

    Stock Model 70 Updates/Grades

    I think I might be inclined to get a nice Bell & Carlson synthetic stock with the aluminum bedding block in the stock just to make it more consistent in groups and bring out the best potential of the rifle. I really like my wood stocks and Boyds makes some great laminate stocks and you can get...
