RE: M-16 vs AK-47

I've owned both and I used them for different purposes. The AR was a varmint rifle and the AK was a plinker/home defense weapon. The AR-15 is a much more versatile weapon.

RE: Which lever action 22?

I'd get a marlin. I'd also look for a used one if a new one cost too much. The marlins are forged steel and walnut. They will last many generations. My Dad bought me a 39a for my 13th birthday and...

RE: I have a scope recommendation

Jakal,
Nice post. I have a vari-x II 2-7x33 that is very similar to the vx-I. I think it is a wonderful scope for a timber rifle.

RE: Bushnell yardage pro scout range finder

I use the bushnell scout for bowhunting and it works very well. I find it easy to use one handed. Which I find useful when one hand may be filled with a bow.

My goto deer load is a barnes original 300gr fp in front of enough imr-4198 to get 2150 fps. You are right on about the blood trails and quick kills.

RE: Ruger .44mag

Go with the .44 mag. After you've mastered that then get the .480. I have a few ruger .44's. I havea redhawk 5.5" s.s. and a 7.5" blued. I like the 5.5" better as a carry/pack gun.
