Default Last evening !

My sinus’ And the weather subsided enough for me to see the regular Virginia gun season out ! Carried my new to me unblooded Mannlicher Schoenauer circa 1956 MC 30-06 Carbine and in case I get a covey of deer my also new to me but blooded Benelli Montefeltro circa 1988 . Both loaded with yuck factory ammunition. My range finder claims I’m
34-36 feet up . 52 degrees no precipitation little wind and sunshine a good way to cap the season .

I got that Benelli in October it came with 4 regular chokes and two turkey specific chokes . I also ordered SIX buckshot specific chokes for it . Choke in the gun at the moment is a Kick's Buck Buster FULL , it does very well with 00 , also have a Kick's EXTRA FULL that did great with #1 Buck . Earlier today I had a box at the Post Office that contained a Kick's Buck Buster LITE FULL that's supposed to be the thing for 000 . I should know on paper atleast in the next couple weeks . I had a double with the Benelli in mid December using factory WIN 3" #1 Buck using the Pattern Master buckshot choke , flattened two PDQ .

If I kill 10-15 deer a year for the next 10 years that might cover all the buckshot and or slug loads I'd like to try in my 10's , 12's . 16's and 20's . But that would be a TREMENDOUSE challenge as I really really like rifles as well LOL's !

Wow, Craig!

You go up a LOT higher in your stand than I do! Nice rifle, by the way! Better luck next season.

Thank you sir ! I had a very good season this year , one the last evening would have been nice . But if ya donít get one ya donít have to mess with it later . So either way can be considered a win ! Thanks on the Rifle thatís my most recent MS I have MCAís in 243 and 270 and MCís in 308 and 06 . Also have a 1908 8x56 MS somewhere in the safe . Theyíre all Mannlicher stocked carbines by the way. That 06 will most likely be my last unless I can pick up an MC/MCA Carbine in either 6.5x54 or 7x57 . That MC stock with the relatively high comb works very well for me and I can get by with the lower MCA comb , but as to the earlier non Monte Carlo stocks I doubt Iíll like them very much as Iím going to mount a scope on whatever I get .

Hello,
I don't know anything about shooting deer with buck shot but I do own a nice Manlicher mca in 30 06. It will shoot a clover leaf of three shots at 100 yds with just about any ammo you put in it. A Manlicher rifle is by far the smoothest bolt action rifle you will ever handle. Most of the time at a bargin price. You just have to be careful about the scope mounts. They are hard to find if missing.
