For last season, it was a 6.5 Grendel CZ 527 for the rifle and the 338/375 Ruger carried in the Eberlestock for the side arm. Great combo! Since I like to shoot small deer I like to use a small rifle :chuckle:



Next year will be the 338 SnipeTac rifle and pistol combo. That's what I used for bear this year. Everybody loves a matched pair. :tup:

6.5 x 55 is my favorite hunting caliber.  I've dropped everything from tiny CA Blacktails to a Maine moose with no problem.

Nice.  How do you like the scout for hunting?  Consider a writeup in the guns and ammo board.
