I had an issue last year with a 5.56 rifle i took in with .223 ammo. They wouldnít let me in for about 2.5 hours. Military knew the relation from 5.56 to .223 and had no issue but dumbass customs lady wouldnít have it. They finally let me through when supervisor came out and spoke to military and he understood. Having any numerical difference from rifle to ammo will always be an issue. In the past when i have that situation i take the ammo in a box that matches caliber on rifle. Just be careful with it. Request gun permit with info on rifle on rifle barrel. The rest can be figured out.

Ok. Mine is 6.5saum on the barrel and 6.5gap 4s on the brass so numbers will match just not the lettering.

Looking good! 0.38 so far for us. It’s been over a month without rain at our place. Hopefully everyone will get some.

I do and have guys with me that do. My cousin bought my 257 STW and we reload brass in 7mm ultra mag cases. This year was the first year they questioned but got it figured out quick. I ordered 100 round headstamped 257 STX years ago from Quality Cartridge but they are shot out now and Quality Cart is out of business.

Had our first card pull this weekend. Deer are up for the most part with some of the older guys being down. Drought has been harsh. We need some rain ASAP.

Here are a few pics:

We got 2.5" Sunday night just north of PL road. Looks better than I've seen that country in years, our problem is we didn't get hardly any rain all spring. It will probably rain all fall and winter!
Does anyone know if Nuevo Leon has a early bow season?

Doesnít look like an early bow season, but there is an early doe and spike season starting on the last Friday in October

No bow season, just the Spike/Doe Season mentioned above.

If he has a Passport He Only Needs His DL. When they scan his DL His Passport will Show Up with No Problem.
