Other Big Game / Re: Selkirk Caribou Herd officially declared extinct
« Last post by Bob33 on Today at 04:54:05 PM »
This herd has been struggling for quite awhile. They just werenít long for the world. I donít see how you could pit this as wolves vs caribou. Predation was the final straw but with consitantly low numbers in the herd it was just a matter of time before something got them. I donít think that they have numbered over 50 in this century.

Historically, within the lower 48 states, woodland caribou were once distributed from central Washington State to Glacier National Park in Montana and south to Salmon River. Additionally caribou were found within the Great Lake States and New England States such as Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. It is not know how many caribou were found within what are now the lower 48 states, but it is likely the numbers were in the thousands.

Today, woodland caribou are found in only one location south of Canada, which are the Selkirk Mountains of northern Idaho and northeastern Washington. This small population, which historically numbered in the hundreds of caribou, has been reduced to less than 15 animals. The habitat for this small population is contiguous with adjacent British Columbia and the animals move freely across the international border.

Hopefully Idaho opens back up the snowmobiling in that area, used to be a lot of nice trails out of Priest Lake.

might as well, nothing much left to protect up there.

Try shooting the G40 before you decide. A few more ounces and you have a much easier to shoot platform that still fits easily on your chest in a gunfighters Kenai holster. I wear mine under my bino harness with easy access and no issues. Iíve got over a hundred miles hiking with the gun binos and pack straps and have no complaints. I do use the vortex harness instead of the giant bino cases people seem to like.

I got the same setup,  Kenai holster under a vortex bino holder, but I've got zero miles with it yet, glad to hear I'm on the right track with that setup  :tup:

Agree.  My take on it as well.  Wolves or not this was going to be the outcome.

How exactly is a primer flattened? Pushed out to the bolt face? Just expanded in the primer pocket?
 I still have normal resistance when extracting these primers.
The gun has shot 20 of these rounds and still no hard bolt lift at all, gun hasn't come apart and still shooting great groups. I still plan to run this load for spring bear unless someone that is known to be trustworthy on here tells me at any point the gun will come apart or I will die.
The only way to know if the primer pockets are loosening from overpressure is either they blow out when you shoot or the case just not hold a new primer. If there a bit loose going in next time maybe drop it a bit but that would just affect brass life.  :twocents:

Roger that.
I'll nstall a new primer in the tumbled brass and see what she feels like
