I'm with Don on this one. I couldn't believe I had to get to page 5 of this post before someone mentioned the 280 Rem. Virtually the same as a 30-06 except with the 7mm bullet. I got mine at Woolworth's and have never looked back.
Mine is a 7mm Rem mag because thats the only rifle i own right now. I'm thinking about putting a muzzle break on It. My shoulder gets bruised up a bit. I bought it to impress my father. its his favorite.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
