    Bought a new to me rifle

    In maybe a year my brother is giving me my dads rifle. He got it from the estate. Its a remington 721 in 30/06.has killed a lot of deer. My dad bought it in the 50’s i believe it was. Brother is also giving me his 308. I dont know what kind it is. Was his hunting rifle his whole life. Has killed lots of deer, antelope snd elk. But he dosnt hunt any more. Wanted to know if i wanted it. I said absolutely! He lives in seattle. When he come thru this winter hopefully he will be brinning them. Im thinking ill put a new stock on dads snd msybe even get it reblued. Just to make it look good again. Has no collector value so it wont really hurt the value. And i wouldnt care anyway. Too old to worry about things like that.

    Bought a new to me rifle

    Ok heres the deal. Years sgo the very first rifle i ever purchased for mysrlf was a remington 700, ADL, in 30/06 caliber. Had I believe at the end a redfield, 3x9 wide field scope. Put the scope on about 1980. In sbout 83 or 84,i just dont remember it was stolen. I have wanted to replace it ever since. Havent as i never found the right one at the right price or didnt hsve the money at the time. Well, i just happened to find one todsy. Same rifle but had a leupold 3x9 in weaver mounts. Gor it for $450 total. In really nice shape bright bore not a scratch on the metal anywhere nor on the stock. Im tickled. What do you think. Did i do alright? I didnt have my blue book . It got burned in the fire. One more thing to replace.
  3. Im not really in position to reload. Some of my reloading stuff i had taken to my winter house in redding planning on setting up a bench down there. But house and garage where stuff was stored is toast. Have not even be3n able to get in yet. Thst eill happen sunday. That why the need for factory ammo. Thanks for the replys guys its appreciated.
  4. I have a lady friend that will be hunting with me this year. She has a 25/06. Hasn't shot it in 15 years. Use to hunt with her ex. He reloaded everything but all his records are gone and he is passed away. She has no ammo left available to her. So i want to buy ammo and have her sight rifle in to ammo. I'm not familiar with that caliber so need help in deciding what to purchase. Thanks all.

    After getting the tikka 260 I ordered two mags for it. Or I thought that was what I was ordering. I either ordered the wrong ones or midway shipped the wrong ones. I paid $66.40 for the two mags. I don't feel like the hassle of returning them so will sell them here for $45 shipped.

    What a beauty. Hats off to her being able to remain composed enough to make the shot at such a monster. I know it would be difficult for me to do so. Congratulations.

So you tell me what i have. It says 7.62 x51 on the mag itself. As to the price i posted what i paid,.

    New to me rifle

    Meeting seller tomorrow for inspection and purchase if it looks as good as I think it will. Suppose to have only had about a box of rounds thru it. It's a Tikka T3 Hunter in 260 Remington. I'm looking forward to it. With the detachable magazine it will make for a good deer rifle. Since I don't get around too well anymore and usually hunt alone, I am mostly a road hunter. Having the removable magazine will allow me to jump outta the truck and quickly load the rifle. Trying to push rounds down into the top of the magazine in the rifle sucks. Lost a chance at a bear trying to do that a few years ago. Does anyone have any comments pro or con regarding the rifle and or the caliber. I'm thinking of getting either a redfield or lumpy for it. Probably something like 4-16x 40. Whatcha think?

    Still looking for him. He was back today but I wasn't home. He was playing with my free standing hammock. It has been turned over. Not just the hammock but even the stand. Wish I had been here. Maybe he will be back tomorrow.

    New to me rifle

    Got the vortex 3-22 scope mounted. Got it sighted in. Three rounds inside a four bit piece. Just off a front sand bag. I'm pleased. Sure makes it easier when seeing a deer to jump from the truck and load and be ready. Haven't seen anything but does and one spike. Could not put a fork on him.

    Snowmobile.

    Well I sure won't overdo moving. I have nothing but clothes to move. No furniture in the new house so have to purchase rverything. Going to be doing a lot of craigslist reading for awhile.but I will buy new mattresses. Damned if I want someone's bedbugs. I prefer my own. Most everything else can be picked up used. Save the money for other things. Like maybe a boat. I'll be pretty close to keswick reservoir. Don't know anything about it but bet it has fish. Of course Shasta won't be too far away either. So a boat goes onto the list of possible purchases.

    Snowmobile.

    Well I'm no longer looking for a snowmobile. I got the snow problem whipped. After being snowed in the last two winters decided I wasn't going to let that happen again. S I just went out and bought a small house in the Redding area. Doesn't snow much down there so I won't have to worry about it. I was just getting too old and stove up go deal with lots of snow. Just not able to hike around it it much anymore, and getting much more pron to serious health problems. If I have a serious stroke while snowed in paramedics can't get me out very easily. Hence the house. Not fancy nor very large. But will be warm and dry and hopefully I'll be able to get a shop back up and running. So all is going to be good . On a quarter acre so room for my big old dog to run around.

    New to me rifle

    I picked up a vortex 3-12 got it mounted and got it sighted in. Sure nice to have that removable magazine filled up and in my pocket. If I see something while driving around I can bail out and have rifle loaded and ready to go very quickly. Noe to just start seeing some deer. May hav gotten a hot tip tonight. A young fellow got his first ever buck today. Had seen one that got away. But he kept plodding along and this pretty little fork jumped up outta his bed and started trotting away. He made a nice shot and brought it home. Location is just about a mile or 2 from my cabin here. So you can guess where I'm going home be taking a walk. Going to be next week after my brother gets here and goes with me. I don't walk too well anymore and stumble too much when brush is heavy and it has bed. Logged. Exactly this location. Want someone with me for safety! I'm just a wimp I guess. Oh yea tomorrow Friday I go to Redding to meet the seller of the tikka super lite in 300wm. Excited about that one too.

    Need advice on what to buy

    You may also want to consider the John Deere gator. You mentioned using it for upkeep on your property. The gator has lots of equipment you can use on it. I have never driven one but just from looking at the side by sides in general.

    New to me rifle

    Got it picked up today. Tomorrow is scope mounting and hopefully a trip to the range. Bought a box of 120 grain as that was all they had. I'll try burney sporting goods tomorrow see what they have? With my poor old brain I can not remember much of anything. Do we need lead free?
