Re: Groundhog crawl aways with .204..

I'm shooting 39 Grain SBK from my CZ Model 527 .204 "Varmint" Rifle and they really put the Groundhogs down with good shot placement...I also use my Browning A-bolt Micro Hunter .22 Hornet with 35 grain Hornady V-max bullets and they do a great job on killing Groundhogs...again take Your time an aim...

Re: 2016 Mn firearms season buck

Awesome Buck...Congratulations!


I saw a few Illinios Bucks at a Whitetail Show a few years ago that had similar holes in their Antlers,a Guy there told me it from Bugs or Parasites that get into the Antlers at an early stage/velvet and bore holes that cause it?

Re: What rifle?

Check out the CZ model 527 .204 Rifles,the "American" is a lighter easier carrying Rifle and the "Varmint" is a little heavier Rifle with the longer barrel.Both are well made Rifles with wood stocks,quality workmanship and very accurate when finding the right weight bullet!

Re: What bullets do you all like for coyotes

I tried the 40 Grain Hornady bullets and they performed pretty good,the 32 Grain Winchester Bullets did better but the Federal 39 grain Sierra Blitz Kings did the best in Accuracy thru my CZ model 527 "Varmint" .204 Rifle. So far all the Coyotes I've shot had a very small entrance hole and "No" exit...

Re: Left Hand Browning 204?

I'm think back in 2004 or 2008 at the "Shot Show" they had the Browning A-bolt Hunters in a .204,not sure if they had made any LH models?I found a RH model (Micro Model?) last year and passed on it...been kicking myself ever since and should go back and see if it's still there?Not many People around...

Re: Your Best/Favorite Deer Hunting Rifles?

I believe they can use center fire Rifles in Illinios to Predator Hunt.....makes a lot of sense to not be able to use a center fire during Deer Season using only shotgun/muzzle loader because of too long a range if they use a center fire Rifle yet some of the new muzzle loaders can reach out several...

Re: Your Best/Favorite Deer Hunting Rifles?

Valar....the .243 would be a good choice for Deer since it would have less recoil,just think the .308 would be better for those Big 200lb + Illinois Deer! :D ;)

Since You have to use Shotguns or Muzzle Loaders are You allowed to use the Center Fire Rifles for Predators/Coyotes then?
