Thank you so much for the info! I just sent an email to the gun shop where I will by the gun to see what both of those accessories would cost (installation of the new pad as the unknown).

Pertaining to the Remington 700 discussion, I have 6-8 and they are a good solid action. I have done a pillar bedding job on each stock to enhance accuracy and I believe all calibers I have are under 1.33" 5 shot groups at 100 yards. I'm in the process of rebarreling my 700 in .17 Remington, this one wears a HS Precision stock. It shot .7-.8" groups prior to the barrel job. It will be getting a new Shilen barrel. We toured the Shilen factory on the way down to the Pond Boss conference, great people with a great product.

The picture below is our son Grant with his first buck this year on our place, a small 8 point. Thanks.

Never had a Vanguard safety problem that I am aware of.

Hey Pat,

We like the TC, I can't remember what the stock is though. Thanks.

Picked up the Tikka T3X and ordered rings, scope, and Limbsaver recoil pad. It seems like it shoulders high, but it is hard to tell without a scope on it. It is very light so I am glad to have the replacement recoil pad ordered.

What caliber did you end up with? Let us know how you like it after you get it all setup and broke in.

Too cold to sight in (for me).



Pups think so too! Dark guy on the couch is almost 10 months old (Sherman - the tank).

This season my trophy was a white-tailed deer which I shot from 500 yards. My Primos Group Therapy Bench Anchor Adjustable Shooting Rest helped me make my shot more accurate and linear. However, it is very heavy to take it with myself so I want to replace it with Caldwell 336677 Lead Sled Dft 2. I learned about it from this review https://under-the-open-sky.com/best-shooting-rest/. Guys, what can you say about her?

A successful 500 yd shot is tremendous! Tell us more about the deer and gun please.

We picked up the collars at Menards. They hold up well (seem to be made of the same material as old army belts). I grew up with German Shepherds and my wife and I have had them for over 30 years. These 3 are some of the best we have ever had. The young male is just under a year old and we are hoping his size does not come with any orthopedic problems. He is the stockiest shepherd we have been around. We named him right "Sherman" - "The Tank"! The best part of this pack is that we can let them out on the farm and they never go far from the house unless we do. We got them in sequence and the older one trained the rest. Heaven help anyone raising a hand to my wife!

Maybe this collar? Not sure on size.
