Got a chance to go shooting . She still shoots like a charm . I enjoy sitting steel targets at different yardages and shooting fast and drilling my targets dead center .

Glad to see this topic still rolling. I have been shooting a few times but wont get to hunt till probably late November early December.

Yes, I too like shooting a few different loads too but I just am not good enough to get that dead center shot...lol

I love shooting my 73 . And I enjoy shooting at Targets at different ranges . And when I hit the center , it makes for a Great day . I haven't shot a cowboy match in several years but I gave it hell for 20 years .

Might be buying some property with my son soon that has a ton of whitetail sign on it. There’s got to be a big buck on it. The rub is that my daughter in-law is a big animal lover. I also am an animal lover, venison that is. Venison is an animal right? I hope that I can twist her arm and harvest at least one off of it. Ones aplenty. I don’t think that I’d use my ‘73 but maybe my ‘76. We’ll see.

Thanks for the encouragement but I would have to actually work up real hunting loads as opposed to cas loads, very different things imo. Accurate with power loads as opposed to easy shooting minute of sass marshal at point blank range loads. I was thinking more about using the ‘76 or ‘95 or maybe my Krag for the extra power and range. My last deer rifle was a .25-06 Sendero but after selling it I did harvest a few deer with my M1. Having the much larger acreage to stretch out my rifle range will allow me to do some ammo development this fall. Couldn’t do that on an acre and a half. Used to go to my company’s 100 yd range at their employee center but the new owners have closed the range down.

We bought the property. Should become a nice homestead if I live long enough. 11 acres field- 23 acres old hard woods- newer pine woods that butts up to something called Flat Swamp. The peanuts are gone now and the farmer is doing winter wheat next, soy beans in the spring I’m guessing. Plenty of room to sight in a rifle or two. Working on cleaning up the overgrown old house sight that’s on it. House is gone just the footers, trash, fireplace, pump house and shallow well left. Exactly one hour away from me. Hoping the strong winds from the leftover hurricane took down two dead trees on the house sight yesterday.
