Season is approaching. Most of my range time is now with the hunting rifles! Was at the NCW Gun Club bright and early this morning, setting up targets at 100, 200 and 300 yards. Got the rifles ready, and at 0705, sent the first round downrange!

After some recent painful issues with my neck, I avoided shooting from prone, and concentrated on my sitting position. Marksmanship skills are coming back! My neck appreciated the mild recoil of the 25-06 rifle, but the 30-06 was tolerable. The Remingtons are both shooting very well, as expected. It's just a matter of tightening up the nut behind the trigger now.









Am continuing to use my two standard loads:

30-06, 165 Nosler Ballistic Tip w/H4350 for 2970 fps

25-06, 115 Nosler Ballistic Tip w/Retumbo for 3150 fps

Bear season is only a week away! Guy

Yup, and I often wait until that first week of September... Then make my way over to NoTellum Ridge in your area of operations to do my bear hunting...

Train up and be ready!
I've the utmost confidence in you.
So keep right on training and be at your optimum
lethality for the hunt, and be safe afield.

Here, in east Texas, the heat is oppressive. Daily highs
of 105 with a heat index of 111 are the norm. But I
continue too train early in the day if I'm up to it. So
I'm glad you're able to train in spite of the physical
difficulties of the neck that plagues your prone
shooting. Adapt and push forward. Hoo-ah!
