    I don't Hunt anymore but if I did, I have a Ruger RPR that's good for Long Range in .308 cal.

    I don’t know how I forgot about BP! Flintlock is my favorite season here in PA. I harvested my first deer with a “build your own” .50 cal. TC Hawken. I now use a .45 Cal. Tennessee Valley Late Lancaster. It’s my ultimate deer whomper.

    This would be my choice if I was buying a new rifle/scope combo today. I kick myself for not buying one a few years back at Academy when they had Tikka stainless/synthetic at $399. Heck, my safe had an open spot just calling out for it also.
    I screwed up, what can I say.
