I made payments on a Sako 30-06 for my first to come
deer hunting this fall. Owe 45 bucks on it, and get to
bring it home. (Has a 3x9 leupold scope, mounted
nicely.) What brand of ammunition would you fella's

I've looked for and found two public areas within
25 miles of my house I can target practice at. Took
hunter safety, so I know to make sure of my shot,
where to hit the deer, and how far a bullet travels
so I don't want to miss. If i'm not ready to hit one
I'll even wait till next yr. (After listening to how
many have been hit turkey hunting, I'm weary of
going with some of the local good ol'boys who
hunt out of their trucks.) My husband doesn't
hunt, but is willing to lug my deer to the car.:)!!

Any how, thanks for listening. Im a gal who likes
to shoot. Only handguns and shotguns at targets
so far. Just think thou...if all the women became
interested, they'd have a lot harder time trying
to take em' away from us... wouldn't they???

Nice choice of weapons Mouse, I love the fit and feel of a Sako, the scope needs no introduction here. My 22 year old niece shoots a 30-06 and loves it. Please handle it like a 12 gauge, never get happy or the recoil will bite. I am a big fan of the Remington core lokt bullets. Dont skimp on huntin ammo! buy the best and try the rest, once you find the best ammo for your gun dont change it. use the other stuff for Targets and small game till the rifle feels like part of your arm. Tell your husband he is a dear man and we commend his offer, lets see if he still is willing once you have shot a 900 lb. bull elk.:D :usa:
