Congrats on a great looking ram! Details man, we need the story with rifle, caliber, equipment that worked and failed. We need to re-live your hunt with you! Who was your outfitter and did they perform as you expected?
Great photos by the way!
what i was expecting on this trip and what i got where 2 different things. Not all of it the outfitters faught. Do to some family emergencies the outfitter was able to push this trip back a couple of weeks for me. Thank you castlerock outfitters.
We ended up backpacking for this animal which was ok with me. The shot was a 330 yard shot. I was using a ruger m77 stainless in .270wsm. I have a leupold vx-ii 4x12x40 scope. both the gun and scope worked on the first shot.
I was impressed with cables microtex pants and shirt. Both of those items worked extremely well. I also liked my lowas sheep hunter boots. Basically a great hunt that you have to be in excellent shape and a desire to work your but off.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
