My daughter shot her 1st elk last year with a Rem model 7 in 7mm-08 275 yards cross canyon one shot. One happy kid.:smile: It all comes down to how well and how comfortable you are with your model 7. They are great little rifles. Aim for the vitals shot placement is the key. good luck gunslinger
I have never used that rifle, so I can't help much. But I do have a question.
You mentioned you are going hunting on an Apache Reservation. Being that reservations are sovereign, does that mean the tribe controls who can and can't hunt, when and where? Just curious, since it occurred to me that Indian tribes should/can control hunting rights as private property.
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
