Mossberg 500 JIC. Relatively cheap, reliable, simple design, easy to use, large spread, and you don't have to worry about shooting through walls.

I think we're going to buy this, I was at Walmart today and asked if they had them, I probably need to go to Diϲk's or Cabela's.

You're going to love it, have you settled on a cartridge yet...or do you hand load ?

This is way late but just saw this post. I have all of my grandpa's equipment to load my own rounds but unfortunately he died before he could teach me. My friend has been doing it for a few years so when I get some time he said he would show me the basics. 

I shot 5 different brands over the last few months. Will try some more next year when I have more time to experiment. The most consistent that I have found is Winchester Expedition Big Game which comes in 142 grain. Seems like it will be great for deer hunting. 

It's amazing what that muzzle brake can do. Cuts the recoil by about half. It's loud for people around you but it doesn't direct much of anything at the shooter.

I won a .270 Savage in a raffle a month ago. I didn't want it so I took store credit and ordered a Weatherby Vanguard H-Bar in 6.5 creedmoor. It comes with a threaded barrel so I also ordered a PVA Jet Blast Muzzle Brake. I am planning on buying a suppressor for it eventually. 

I guess Weatherby is moving from California to Wyoming so their shipping times are all screwed up so I haven't received it yet.

It's paramount to have a mentor or teacher when you start reloading, much can be learned from reading and research through many reloading sites...but learning the basics hands on is much faster & safer. If you haven't tried the Hornady Match ELD series, Nosler Trophy Grade Accubonds, Federal Premium Big Game series ballistic tip series...all worth a solid look for hunting and sub MOA accuracy, based on the individual rifle and head space/twist rate/barrel length.

Clean the barrel correctly for new break in period, then shoot it dirty the rest of the way...don't clean the barrel for best accuracy. Remember removing the muzzle break will significantly alter the sight-in impact point, anywhere from 3-6" higher approximately.

PS: Any additional details needed can be gleaned from Vert's extensive knowledge from "research", a quick PM should clear up any specification or velocity questions. :)

Hornady ELD was the recommended round by Weatherby but the accuracy wasn't there. That what I shoot for my .270. Nosler is what I really want to try. They were sold out in the area whne I was shopping for ammo. 

Prostaff 5 that I've had a few years. Its been a solid scope for my needs.

I shoot the Accubonds with 2 of my rifles 30-06/260 Rem, accuracy and expansion is impressive....usually DRT

Some of the smaller bore magnum rounds have been known to have jacket retention issues, and can lead to bullet frag....but "normal" calibers are no issues.

How many total rounds have been down the tube, since purchase ?

I had jacket separation with the ELD-Xs 2 years ago. Seems like a fairly common issue. 

I've shot around 100 rounds so far. I will shoot another box before hunting in November once it gets cold to make sure that nothing has changed. Only got a doe tag this year so not too worried about it but don't want to wound anything.

Jacket separation is fairly common with close range shots of 50ish yards or less, far less of a problem at moderate ranges of 100-200 yds. Most Weatherby V's are know to have tight throats, so 100-200 rounds will slick the rifling down for best MOA accuracy...don't give up on any potential brands you'd like to try yet, and definitely don't shoot it for testing with a clean barrel.

For real, someone give me a rifle recommendation in the $1000 or less range, please.  Like an AR or AK or something like that.

I'm looking into getting a glock & would like recommendations. Ammunition price is a consideration because i'd like to practice a lot and get pretty skilled.

do not procrastinate,  move on this Stomp - Glocks are ok, .. just find one that fits your hand - comfort is important .

9mm Glock 19 would be the first to rock, are you planning on CCW or just range work ?

There's a lot of variables in picking the right pistol, especially if you're left handed and it's a semi-auto. There's zero advantage to a polymer construction with a striker trigger, if you aren't carrying it on a regular basis.

Don't buy Glock just for the name recognition, they have their place but also will be passing up many great brands and pistols. They have a low bore center, so shoot differently than other brands, more straight back recoil with less muzzle flip...not a bad thing, just different. The G43 is a nice carry piece, but far too small for most men's hands....pinky will hang off the mag at the bottom. The G26 holds more rounds than the 19, but the G19 will shoot circles around the 26 in accuracy.

CCW eventually but range for now. I just wanna get my handling, drawing and shooting skills up because it's been a long time & i wanna be very competent and safe.

It's not just for home protection but for fun. I don't particularly care about brand that much but I've heard a lot of good things about glocks... reliability, ease of use, less prone to the elements easy to CCW etc.. Fits all the check marks for me. I fired one b4 & a few other handguns and i do like the feel of glocks. Was a long time ago though. 

I won't get bored with it after only a couple times. It's like fitness, martial arts, shooting pool or art to me. I like practice, being creative and getting good improving at things i do.

I don't know a lot about AR's. My friend has a DPMS AR-15 that has been reliable. He doesn't care for his weapons and I've never seen it have cycling issues. Range around $500 a piece.

ITR and I both already answered you in the other thread, along with pictures....no response. I gave you a full breakdown of the AK47 vs AR earlier, including technical info and Lefty restrictions...no response.

I try to give unbiased specifics and technical information for those interested, people can make their own choices based on budget and personal preference....or ignore everything I say, doesn't matter to me.

I'll just back out of the room and quit wasting my time....no problem, no hard feelings.

Where? I literally have not seen that

Only post I saw was one where you were saying that me wanting an AK-47 made no sense. I wasn't sure what I was supposed to reply to that with and I wasn't home so I didn't respond.  I'm hoping for specific weapons, not just classes of weapons.  

I've been working on buying a house, I haven't been reading the forum as closely as usual.  My apologies for the oversight.

ITR said the Colt which I saw. That is a much more reliable AR but starting around $1100 I think. 

For the casual shooter a mid range AR will work just fine.

about 1/2 way down

 

My comments on the AK47 were purely based on fact:

1) Aftermarket accessories and options are much more difficult to get,,,if even available.

2) The AK47 ammo in 7.62mm, is far more expensive that thw AR15's .223 or 5.56mm

3) You're left handed, and that's a big deal if safety access and charging bar speed matters...the AR wins. 

 

PS: I wasn't being a dikk, I was trying to save you money on a weapon that probably won't fit your needs, and won't function the way you want because you shoot lefty.

If you're left eye dominant, then shoot left handed. You won't have to close or squint with your master eye, and target acquisition is much faster and far more accurate...especially with iron sights.
