It’s deer rifles in the present day, each chambered for the 101-year-old .30/06, a tough cartridge to argue with underneath virtually any large game-hunting circumstances. We’ve received a semiauto with fancy wooden inventory versus a bolt-action made as sensible as potential.
Dalton’s Montana Rifle
This rifle is what I’d name the David E. Petzal particular. I’ve put the gun collectively over the past yr from an inventory of cool and attention-grabbing gear you guys overview in your journal. At first I assumed you have been paid by the producers to make use of their gear. As I started to timidly buy objects although, I came upon you are not fully stuffed with it, and I’ve been more than happy with the tip end result.
What you see here’s a Montana Rifle Co. X2 bolt motion in 30/06. It has a Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5–16×50 scope on it together with a Sandstorm Customized Rifle Sling. That is the primary rifle I’ve bought and it’ll shoot tighter teams than I can. I’m eagerly awaiting the Missouri gun opener to hopefully tag a whitetail with it whereas placing the gun by its first subject trial. I’ve few issues, because the gun is rock stable.
My Dad gave me this .30/06 Remington 7400 a few years in the past when he purchased a brand new deer rifle. It has manufacturing facility engraving and upgraded wooden. This yr I topped it with an outdated El Paso Weaver K4 in super-low Leupold mounts. These permit me to get a stable cheek weld. The outdated Weaver fogs sometimes, and it has a few chips within the rear lens, however I just like the look of the outdated blued-steel scope, so I put up with it.
This buck was in scorching pursuit of a petite yearling doe. I heard him grunting proper earlier than he cruised across the aspect of a knob I used to be watching. I used to be solely 45 minutes into my deer season once I pulled the set off.
