Here is Jordan's (my grandson) new rifle a Ruger Mk II 22-250 with a Buckmaster scope. A friend of mine here in Picayune gave this to me for Jordan. I am trading my 375Wby for a 257Wby Accumark and Leupold VXIII because Africa is out and even my job at this point. So I will give this 257Accumark to Jordan when he is 14yrs old if he learns to shoot and reload this 22-250 (and I have no doubt he will).
I will let him use my 22-250 load for the rest of this deer season which is a 53gr TSX in front of 39gr H380 and it will drop the deer we have in South Mississippi with no trouble at all. I will have him keep his shots with in 75-100yds until his strength and skill improve and he can prove to me he can hit past 100yds with consistency.
Here is a picture of his rifle and the round he will be using. I called his mother this morning and told her to tell him since she teaches in the school system he is in and she called back and said he was very excited. He and I will hunt with this over the Christmas holiday's.
