Default Crossbow forum has become SO quiet!!

I don't really know what happened but this was always such an active furum. It seems like possibly people have moved on to other sites or are too busy. It wasn't that long ago that everyone knew everyone else by name. I guess time changes things for whatever reason.Hunt hard and hunt safe....

Likely because the archery deer season is open. However, I've been too busy fixin' dumb****'s crossbows to get out this w/e. I'll be in a stand tomorrow tho.

PS Had one yesterday with the brace well below the low mark, as a result the string was thrashed. "Gee, I thought it was supposed to be that way." To which I said "Have you read the manual." "Not yet, been too busy." (For the past year!~) SPIT!

I am a guilty one for not posting near as much as I used to. I April I finally got off of swing shift and now actually sleep at night! So all my nights of being up not able to sleep do not happen anymore. Spent lots of time up at three in the morning reading all the post and responding alot. Now that I am in the maintenance group and working straight days time seems almost gone anymore.

Another thing that has taken almost all of my net time is reloading. Bought a new savage 12 in 204 and have been learning reloading. I now can get many groups to make a sloppy hole at 100 yards. But deer season is creeping up on me and am about ready to put away the reloading stuff and prioritize my time to the deer hunting. I do miss the friendship we shared on here, have not really found it on any of the reloading forums I am posting on.

I was thinking the .17 HMR but everyone says that .204 is slicker than snot on glass.
I am in the market for a yote gun but I am thinking on kicking up to a .243 just cause I could use it for deer. Ah but that .204...
It sure is a great feeling to shoot 1 moa groups at 100 yards and it must be even sweeter with handloads

Don't forget your a crossbow guy though.

Ps.. Does that Savage have the accutrigger and heavy barrel. That's one companythat has really improved over the last 10 years.

John the 204 is a great gun and you will love it! I too almost bought a .17, but was hearing to much about wind drift and it does not do much past 200 yards. I was wanting a flat shooting medium range gun. The .204 is a half inch high at 100, zero at 200, only 3 to 4 inches low at 300 and 13 inches low at 400!, that is all easy ground hog guessing to me! I first bought a H&R to decide if centerfire was something I wanted to try and after liking it, but not getting any more consistent then .75 MOA @100 somehow became addicting, which Don did warn me about. So I bought a savage 12 and have been having a blast. Mine has never had factory ammo down it, only reloads. So far it is liking 39 grain SBK's and 30 grain Berger's. Here is a few pics of the addiction Don warned me about. Both of these are three shot groups at 100 yards.
