That's the Savage Model 11 35-35. Figured it needed a name. 35 caliber bullet over 35 grains of powder, 35-35.

Barrel maker marked the barrel .357AR 1.8. Its a straight wall case with a .358 diameter bullet. That's pretty much all the ODNR needs to know.

My 257 Roberts pushing 120 gr. Speer Grand Slams to an easy 2650 fps out of an old Tanger M77 Ruger is first up, next up is a M7 Remington in 7-08. Those for deer. For feral hogs I have sighted in a Marlin 444 with the Leverrevolution 265 gr. Rubber tips and it is a tackdriver. going to have to mount a light on the scope because it bucks too much to shoot rested on my left thumb as I hold a spotlight. These are tentative decisions subject to change.

Slight change of plans...turns out I don't really care for the AR as a deer hunting rifle. Shoots really good, just not my cup of tea. Prefer single shots or bolt guns. Got the upper for sale and am ordering a Ruger Predator in 6.5 Grendel. Will be using it for deer season if I can get it in plenty of time and my current handloads shoot good out of it.

Still living under the curse, but one of these days I will shed this body, be clothed with an immortal one, and everything will be good.

Hope its as good for you it has been for me.

I had my howa out today after refitting the boyds stock. I like the Rugers allot but there lack of a locking bolt pushed me to the Howa.

I shot three differnet loads today using 123SST & 120G Sierras. Everything shot right at to just under MOA. The third bullet is my load from last year. A Speer Gold Dot 120. THAT load shot under 1/2 MOA again today.

Real happy with this lil Grendel

If I go it will depend on where I go. The entire state is overrun with deer. If I go to my friends ranch it will probably be the 45-70 Siamese Mauser, 300gr Barnes Originals at 2400fps. I haven't worked up loads for the Buffalo Classic as the throat is too short for the bullets I want to use. If walking is required I will be using the Ted Williams model 100 30-30 with the Williams peep sight. I think I will take the Blackhawk 44 Spl with the Keith loads for any wayward hogs. The 450 Bushmaster AR just doesn't seem fair. Do you think the 30-30 will still kill a deer? I hate tracking. Got some of the loads with the 170gr partitions.

A couple years ago, I decided that with approaching age, I would cut down my gun collection, so I passed 3 rifles each to my 3 grandsons.. I did save my CVA .44 mag though..along with several rimfires.

Deer population here in NY State is way up and I have my old timer's license..got 2 trnsferable antlerless permits, and black bears are increased to the point where they are visiting the surrounding villages and hamlets.

Deer in NY are on the large side, compared to some states.. I don't need the meat, but I know some folks who could use some.

Then, this year, I started to get the itch back, and with 4WD I can get closer to my hunting spots. One day, I happened by the gun dept at a Walmart..thinking Marlin 336 lever...but right beside it was a stubby Ruger.

Hmmm..450 bushmaster.. OK, it reached out and caught me !

I was a bit concerned with recoil on my old shoulder, but at sighting in, it wasn't too bad..maybe between a 20ga & 12ga single with slugs.

But that muzzle brake.. I'll definitely need ear protection.

The plan at the moment: Ruger 77/44 or TCR 87/12 ga slug barrel at home. Tikka T3 30-06 or Ruger No. 1 7 x 57 up north.
