    Renegade for elk hunting

Having your 50 barrel bored to a 52 or 54 cal faster twist would be a good way to go. I had a New Englander 50 cal taken out to a 52 cal with a 1-32 twist. That shot pretty darn...

    Renegade for elk hunting

    Heading out to hunt

    Mt. Adams, Mt. St Helens and Mt Hood? I'm up north a bit more, just west of Mt. Rainier. The bear that left that pile is still around, good luck hunting it.

    Down the Fast Twist Rabbit Hole

    80 grains of powder, 1 50 cal wool wad and your PP bullet = tiny groups. Those Rice barrels are real nice!

    CVA .58 Mountain Rifle

    That poor "clanger" target sure took a beating! Are you going to introduce that 58 to an Elk in the fall?
