I haven't been hunting or shooting as much as I used to. Mostly because I am busy with work and 2 kids. Such is life. I had intended to do a bunch of hunting this season and actually set aside the time for it, but then got sick with something the doctors cannot agree on (e.g., Lyme disease, reactive arthritis). I was sick for all of September and most of October.

Right now, I'm working on building up an AR-10 and AR-15. After that, I'll probably buy a .25-06 Ruger MKIITGT rifle and play around with it. After that, I'm looking at some of the Volquartsen rifles in .22 WMR and the .17 caliber rounds. Don't know what I will do after that. LOL

I still have my worked up 10/22 with the Volquartsen trigger assembly on it and it is probably the last rifle I have shot.

Nice to see that one of us is out hunting and having success at it.

Yep, I have been using Barnes X bullets in my .300 Win Mag and I really like them. Once I run out of them I'll probably try the Barnes Triple Shock. They are supposed to be more accurate and cause less fouling. Nice to know that once my son is old enough I can get him hunting deer with my .220 Swift and 53 gr. Barnes Triple Shock.

Cant use anything under .230 to hunt where I am...but looks like that bullet did the trick with ease


Nice young buck, should be good eating!!

Congrats Evan. I have a client that uses the Swift on African game, even dangerous game. He is above the average shot and uses his own custom ammo. On his last safari, he took a Giraffe, 10 other plains game and a Leopard. All with one shot. Good hunting, grayghost
