A 3-12 Burris BPlex makes most of those rounds good to 500 yds. Highest velocity will shoot the flattest. .30-06 is probably the winner.


Since I bought my 30/06 Encore Pro Hunter in 2009, it has become my #1 hunting gun, edging out my previous favorite, a Savage Super Striker in .308 Win.. You will definitely not go wrong with the 30/06 topped with a Burris 3-12 Burris Ballistic Plex. Ammo is universally available at competitive prices.

You've just done what I did years ago. I tried a 260 & a 7mm-08 out here in Colorado for deer and antelope and stuck with the 260. Seems to always have better penetration on larger bodied muleys.

I just got notification from MGM, my 7.62X54R barrel is about TWO weeks out from shipping.
My 6-hole Scope Base and THREE Forend Hangers are getting close to shipping from Bullberry per todays e-mail.
I stopped by Hunts Long Range this morning to pick up the 4 Gill Muzzle Break, but he was not open.
I picked up a new set of RCBS Dies from The Missouri Gun Company. Picked up 100 pieces of brass and a Shell Holder from Cyrus Carter's Gun Shop.
Mike Russell "Legacy Gun Cases" will be e-mailing me some pictures of build options for my new gun case for the Encore.

Things are coming together with about 75 days left until the Missouri Deer Season.

Hey Bob I have a MGM 7.62x54R I had mine made at about 18? but I really like this barrel. I would have to check but I believe mine is also a 1-12 twist but I haven?t gone above 165 gr bullets. I shoot 150 Nosler AB in mine and it loves these bullets but to be honest I didn?t go down to 125?s. I am running the Lapua brass and using Varget powder and in my setup its a REALLY good combo. I can tell you that I was a little surprised at the velocity I was getting out of this setup, its closer to the 308 in a rifle than anything else, and what maybe a overlooked point but something that I can tell you is really nice is the fact you can get ahold of those rimmed cases with your fingers to pull them out a lot easier than the rimless. I have had a barrel in 308 and 7mm08 and while they were also a good chambering, I would take 7.62x64R over either of them based on that alone.

30-06 works well.

NeHunter I am glad to see someone else thinks the 7.62x54R was a good idea. Reading what Mike Bellum has to say about it, I believe with a .308 bore it might be more correct to call it a 7.62x53mmR Finnish.

I got an e-mail from BullBerry today telling me that my Scope Base and Hanger bars have shipped.

My two weeks are up since MGM told me the barrel was still two weeks out. I suspect it will show up shortly.

Bob

Just checking back in with you Bob, how?s that barrel working out? Just got back from a Wyoming antelope trip with mine, one shot one animal! I have only shot a couple with those accubonds but they are still continuing to impress me hope you have as good as luck with your setup as I?m having with mine.

NeHunter I just checked in with MGM. Andy informed me that they had ordered a Special Reamer for my build. I sent in a couple dummy rounds. A 150 BT and a 125 BT both seated to the same depth. I am guessing that the reamer they had on hand cut the throat too deep for my bullets.
I should have the barrel in the next week per Andy.
I have my 4 Port Muzzle Break on hand, ready to install when the barrel comes in.
I still have 52 days until the Missouri deer season. Plenty of time to work up loads with the 7.62X54R.

I may hunt with multiple handguns during the season. I have several hunting handguns that need love and attention.
