    Default Dead Eye - Just For Fun :)

    My 358Win is a real thumper indeed. I love it, 2556fps with a 225gr Accubond out of my Ruger Hawkeye :mrgreen:

    Beartooth, Are those battle scars on the stock of your gun? I'm kinda hoping they are cuz then I'll know I'm not the only one who gets them.

    The 358 Winny.......kind of a little giant...a little package capable of doing big things!

    Yes, those are battle scares from Black Bear hunting in the mountains of Arizona and deer, hog hunting in the pine forest of Mississippi and the swamps of Louisiana. I think it gives my rifle it's due character, and like medals on a soldiers uniform.

    Well done BT! I think some of the gun or ammo companies need to hire you to do some photog work my friend!
    When asked what state I live in I say "The State of Confusion", better known as IL....

    No rifle (or hunter for that matter) escapes hunting Arizona without some battle scares. Where did ya go and howd ya do down there? Bear in Arizona ain't an easy thing to find let alone bring home.

    Very nice, and good deal taking that lip stick wearing deer out of the population! Nothing like 225 grains of smack-down through the lungs to put em right out!

    I hunted just north and west of the Clifton and Morince area. Man you said a mouth full when you said, "No rifle (or hunter for that mattter) escapes Arizona without some battle scares." Yes, I have been there six times and got one bear. It is a lot of work to spot and stalk a bear there but it is a lot of fun in such a beautiful place.

    LuJon, you are so right, I like how you put it " smack-down through the lungs" that is what it did.

    Ah yes, Coronado Trail, one of the best parts of Arizona and little known even by Arizonans. I have a cousin that has lived near Eagle Creek over 30 years . . . awesome country over there and like most of the State rough as a cob. Treasure that little Arizona bear not many ever get one of them unless its over bate, congratulations on that one.

    I saw a very large one on Coronado trail and I tried two years to cut him off and get a shot. I hope I get to try again and you are so right about the land scape being steep and rough as a cob. Fell off a leg and destroy a scope. Good thing I had a back up rifle which I always take when I go there.
