    Default ER Lion's Club show

    What are the hours Sat & Sun of the Eagle River Lion's Club gun show this weekend? I would like to go Sunday as we're Halloweening it up on Saturday.

    Btw, I'm sure this has been posted somewhere previously, sorry if this is a repeat.

    No problem Tim, I didnt make it out yet. Im afraid I might be tempted having already spent my "fun" money on a new boring old 30-06.

    CZ 550 from the campfire classifieds. Hope it shoots as good as my last CZ (375H&H).

    I realized I had to many 30-06 components to not get another 30-06. Perfectly good logic, huh.

    Default 30-06

    Having AT LEAST ONE .30-06 should be requirment for living in Alaska - it is a heritage and traditional thing!

    At least one of the '06s should be a Win. Mdl 70 or a '03 Springfield.

    I definetly have the -06 thing covered. Hardest part is keeping the brass segregated for each rifle.

    I'm very tempted to bring home a new extreme weather Model 70 30-06. Handled one today at Sportsman's.

    What scope did you put on yours? What bullets you shooting in your 300? This is would be my first 30-06.

    Matt, you ought to try the 30-06. Its boring in its efficency. I had a M70 Classic Stainless that I recently sold to tvfinak. I hunted all over the state with that rifle. I never found the -06 wanting. I still have a pre-64 and my grandfathers Rem 760, I just dont get into the stainless/synthetic thing anymore. I have one, a 375 that resembled yours right down to the Mickey (minus color scheme).

    The new M70's sure do shoot. I bought a 270 for my son, and everything thing I have fed it seems to shoot.

    I was never a believer in the fact that you must have a stainless either, but my scope screws (the rings and screws are blued) began rusting out in PWS on a deer hunt mid-Oct. I wiped down and oiled my rifle (in low-light indoors) and didn't see the rust until it formed. What do you do in the field to compensate for ultra-wet conditions with blued guns?

    Most of my hunting has been done with a blued/wood '06 but not in the heinous conditions of PWS in the fall.

    Rings and bases are usually the first part to show rust, especially if they have a matte finnish. Gloss is actually better at kepping rust away imo, but looks like crap when rust finally gets the better of it.

    Last year I took my pre-64 -06 out to Montague Is. for Deer/Bear. Beforehand, I stripped it down, Rem-oil'd it, and coated with Johnson's paste wax. I sprayed it down everynight with an aerosol can of rem-oil, and thoroughly cleaned it when I got home a week later. Looking at the rifle now, I only see the few scrathes in the wood from my pack frame.

    When I used to take my SS guns to PWS for blackbear, I had to go over them the same, just maybe with a little less care.

    I still have a SS like I mentioned, for when hunting from a skiff, salt spray, etc. Main thing is keep them in a case when hunting around salt when you can, and rem-oil the crap out of them.
