Morning all.

If anyone wants some clear weather, we've got plenty here in California.  The caveat is, you have to give up the Bill of Rights to enjoy it.  But that's a discussion for another time.

The family made it to Wisconsin last night, so the first part of their journey is over.

I'm up to my ears in eggs right now, Roo.  8 laying hens, and I can only handle 3-4 eggs in a day. Undecided  I'm giving them away by the dozen.

Morning y'all.
Coffee is hot.

'Tis 55 and cloudy. "Mostly cloudy. Scattered showers in the morning  then a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 70s. South wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 50 percent"

Morning all.

I've got some Oceanfront Property in Arizona if you want it, Major.  Roll Eyes

Russ, they're in the La Crosse area.

Got a couple frogs last night.  I don't feel like eating them right now, so I have them in the freezer, though I might just boil 'em up and toss em to the chickens.

Perhaps someone here can help me with this one.  I'm needing a new deer/pronghorn/elk/bear rifle, and I'm trying to make up my mind between a M70 Featherweight 280Rem, and a Browning '81 Lightweight 30-06.   I already know the ballistics arguments, so it's mostly just I can't decide which I actually want.  Huh

And a top o' the mornin' to y'all! The coffee is... HOT, the weather is COOL and clear for the time being. I finished up the holster I was working on, and shipped it off to it's new home yesterday. Sorry, no pics posted, since I managed to fry my laptop. No way to upload a pic at this time.

It seems like the laptop was just a victim of a streak of bad luck, which started on 4/20. The day was going smooth and mellow, until supper time. It was feeding time for the pack of dogs, and one of the rescue mutts broke his choker and went after another dog. Got a hold of him, my boy had the other, and the mutt snapped down on my finger. Almost ripped the tip off. Got them separated, and that is when he got cocky. Figgering he was safe, now that he disabled my trigger finger, he reached up and grabbed a hold of my face. Several hours in the ER got me several stitches to a ripped lip, a few more stitches to reattach the fingertip, splint for the fractured finger, and the cute little nurse then went on a stabbing spree with every needle she could find. I also had to go through a course of rabies shots. You find a starving dog, feed it, give it a home, and this is how he says thanks.

A week later, and I'm sitting down to a HOT espresso and a movie at the end of a quiet day, and all the dogs are going off. I step outside to see what the fuss is, and I see flames in my woods. I'm in flip flops, running jugs between the well and the fire, until I realize I'm in over my head. After several minutes of spelling out the street name, I give up with the 911 operator, and hope she gets it right. She did, and a half hour later, the fire dept arrives. They decide that they can't get back there, and call the forestry people. They then spend the next two hours standing around, smoking cigarettes and dropping butts in my driveway, while I continue running jugs of water back and forth. A bunch of fat rednecks in shorts and ball caps just watching. One of them even had his wife or girlfriend there! Forestry shows up, runs a trencher around the fire, and then they all leave. I finally stopped running water to it around 2am, but was up the rest of the night keeping an eye on the flames. It finally died out when it rained a week later.

Then one of the pups got a hold of my laptop charging cord. I tried to patch it, plugged in the cord... and shorted the circuit board.

And that is why I can't post pics of the holster. But, it came out really nice! It is for a .45LC, 5 1/2" barrel. Full skirt, fully lined, antiquated medium brown, black border and liner, and basket weave tooling. If he should decide to post pics on the other board, I'll piggyback a link to them.

Wow! Time for another cup o' HOT coffee  Roll Eyes

Well, for deer I love my 30-30 lever action Winchester. Never hunted elk or bear, so I guess I'm not one to help you. The availability of local ammo would be my deciding factor. How cheap and easy can you get ammo for the 280 where you are? I'm guessing you could find 30-06 everywhere, unless folks like to stock up on it, and leave the shelves bare.

My go to rifle is a 1928 Winchester 30-30.  Roll Eyes  But, it's old and tired, and since I've got a decent chance of pulling a plains pronghorn tag, I'm wanting some extra reach.  As to ammo, '06 is $15-$40 a box, depending on manufacturer.  280 is $18 - $45, and the local Sportsman's Warehouse carries it.  Really, I'm deciding between bolt and lever. Roll Eyes  And lever is almost winning.

wellllll   
there's this:

http://www.rifleshootermag.com/ammo/cartridge-fight-270-win-vs-280-rem/

but , jeeze trinity .... unless one are consumed by the desire to tilt at windmills, I usually suggest that folks stick with what can be found at every kmart  walmart  hardware store, which is .270 or '06 .  All My one-rifle friends picked one of those and never looked back.

Unless one is overcome by magnumitis ....  or newgunitis ... in that case there's no hope except spending ...

My old 30-30 is old, ugly, and tired... just like me. It's a match! And, I was able to put 3 rds in a cigarette pack at 100 yds with just the old iron sights. Of course, my eyes are having a hard time lining up the front, back, and target these days  Cry
