I would have thought about Bowhunting the mule deer but I only have 3 days and don’t get to pick the guide. I am honored to go be a guest on this ranch and **** thankful that the state puts these things together. I would go hunt with a slingshot if they told me that was the plan.

How do you like the 300 prc? I thought about it but went the other way and ordered a 6mm creedmoor. I donít know why guns have become fun again but they are!

Your live hunt's are the best ones. Good luck but by the looks of your groups at 300yds you don't need any luck.
Looking forward to this one and I know we will get lots of pics.

I did it just because the 6.5 was a little questionable (for me) for moose and really large game. I also did the exact build as the 6.5 so they feel exactly the same. To answer your question- I love it, recoil is very manageable and I was ringing steel at 1250 with ease. It is by far the best shooting rifle I have ever shot, but it honesty feels the same as the 6.5 and seems to be equally as accurate. The only advantage is size. You are so lucky!

Do you mean to tell me that there really is a winner in the Grand Slam?? I thought it was an official state scam after entering all these years..! Simply incredible that it would be someone I "know" through the GS. Best of luck and can't wait to follow along.

Some hunts are so expensive I have carried rifle backup!(ex stone sheep) so thatís how it started.

Initially I had the rifle built as a 6.5-284 on a short action with extended magazine. It would cycle factory ammo fine but I had some ammo loaded for me. It wouldnít cycle and drove me nuts. I started talking to Robert about what I wanted and I didnít want to be like everyone else with a 6.5 creedmoor. I picked the prc because it had a bit more performance and everyone I talked to had been shooting lights out with the Hornsby ammo. So, thatís what I picked! I have only shot mine with the brake on but I have a thread protector as well. I love being on target after the shot and this gun does it. Itís been the best gun decision I have made and itís just plain fun to shoot!!!!
Put a can on it and you will really love it.
