My Nosler M48 TGR Custom 7mm08 is coming in October :)



The real big stuff I will opt for my 300Win mag and either the 180gr NF or the 220gr Partition. I need the spot that the 7x57mm was going to fill which the gunsmith is not able to do until late spring of next year, so he and I will do something else after at that time.

I have two important deer hunts one in Tennessee in Dec and one in Louisiana in January and I want to take a 7mm on these hunts. So I am going with the Nosler M48 TGR Custom in 7mm08. I had a custom 7mm08 20yrs ago, built off a Sako action and it was a tack driver. I remember one hunt in the delta of Mississippi north of Vicksburg, where this deer kept sticking his head up above a fallen tree at 205yds from me so I started counting and timing when he would lift his head. When he did it the third time I put that bullet right at the base of his head where it joined the neck and I dropped him right there in his tracks, that was such a cool shot through those woods. So, as I said, I have a M48 TGR in 7mm08 going to be shipped to me in mid October, in time for my load work and have it ready for my hunts.

More on "Options"

Oh to have the $$ to spend on options such as that . . . . . . .

Will have to be "content" with having to choose between the .300 Savage and the .270 this year. Too many choices . . . . . . .

I would say different guy need different scope.



I got a ZOS 10-40X60 E-SF R6 MilDot Tacticle Rifle Scope from "WelcomeGet" last year and it work well on my gun. That stuff cost me $140.



Magnification: 10x-40x

Objective Diameter (mm): 60


I'm not sure if this scope fit other hunting guns.
