Episode-1750- 10 Gun and Ammo Combos and What they are Great At — 8 Comments

  1. Don’t forget Richard Lee’s philosophy , low pressure loading use a softer lead bullet to avoid lodging a bullet in the barrel.

  2. For the reduced .44 loads, one of the one of the best, most versatile powders is Trail Boss. It is made for the Cowboy Action shooters and can be used in anything from a .32SW to a 338 Lapua. It turns a .300WSM with a 150 gr bullet into a plinker for kids. It is on the Hodgdon website.

    Great list, 70% of these, or an equivalent (Rem 700 Mountain in 25-06 instead of the 7mm08, Henry Big Boy in .45LC instead of Marlin in .44) are in my safe.

  3. Great show Jack.
    I had an older Model 7 in 6mm. It had an 18 1/2 inch barrel. Nephew got off with it a few years ago. A another option is the Ruger American Rifle Compact. It has a 20″ barrel. I got it in 7mm-08 . 6 1/2 lbs. Accurate, cool rifle.
    I have used a REM 870 20 ga exclusively now for ten years. It is light, fits me good. Light recoil. Kills just as good. In fact turkeys are scared of that gun.

  4. 1. I have owned a Heritage 22 with a magnum cylinder for over 10 years. I have never had a problem with it. I’ve used it to teach my wife, my mother-in-law, and several other people to shoot. If you are planning on selling the pistol in the future, get the Ruger. But, if you aren’t worried about selling it, get the Heritage and spend the difference on ammo.
    2. I own both the Marlin 60 and the Ruger 10/22. I admit to preferring the 10/22. I think it is because I can easily modify it for any shooting purpose I decide to use it for. But, both are great rifles.

  5. Love the content…
    As much as I love all your sponsors,and try to support them as much as I can, I have to say that Bulk ammo is doing a little price gouging. I don’t know what ammo costs in Texas, but in Montana I am buying the same .22 rounds for less than half of what they are selling them for. The .17 ammo is about 5-7 dollars more a box. Not trying to be a dick, but I can’t really support a company with that kind of a price increase. Sorry, but I thought you should be aware……..
