    It is the Hoppes Sweets 7.62 Copper Remover that has the EXTREME HARSH Smell, Exact Same as Barnes CR-10, They are No different than a Whiff of Janitorial Strength Ammonia, will take your Breath away! :shock: Boretech Eliminator does the Same thing as these other 2, But has NO Harsh smell. I think Regular Ole Hoppes Smells good, Tho I don’t use it, there is no need for it in my Cleaning Routine.

    I think you're being gentle when it comes to "take your breath away". :wink: I use Montana Extreme copper remover in my CF's and it'll almost put you on the floor. I like the smell of Hoppe's but the wife DOES NOT. The synthetic keeps it a happy home. Now the copper remover, that's done in another building.

    Yes that Savage was a new friend back in July. Just wasn't meant to be though.Didn't blood the 7600, but I've developed an INTENSE appreciation for just how practical a rifle it is. She now has a very nice 4x Redfield Tracker SE on board. She throws 3 130 gr Barnes TTSXs into an inch, give or take, at 100. Great rifle.
    However. True to form, Herself ( my 10 year old Black Diamond 50 XR) got the job done this year. 2 down in our October muzzleloader season.
    The old girl tolerates my flirting with breechloaders, but then she shows me why she's my best girl.

    I have several CF rifles and calibers to choose from, but the one I use the most is my Rem 700 in 7mm-08 topped with a Leupold 3-9x40 scope. Worked well this past season for me as usual.

    That is a DANDY Buck!! Congrats on him :yeah:

    I shoot also shoot a 7MM-08, I killed my Buck with it this year. I have 3 Favorite Centerfire Rifles, My absolute favorite is probably My Rem 700 .308 SPS Varmint, 26” Bull Barrel with Bix’N Andy Ball Bearing trigger, that Rifle shoots AMAZING with my Reloads. I also have a Weatherby Vanguard S2 in 6.5 Creedmoor with a Boyds Pro Varmint Stock, I really like it as well :yeah:

    You CANNOT go wrong with a Tikka. I have one in .270 WSM and it's a tack driver with 150 grain Berger VLD's and RE 19 powder. It did quite well with factory loads too.

    I've been carrying a Remington 760 chambered in. 30-06 since I started hunting in 1980. I still use that rifle for tracking in snow and crawling through swamps and laurel tangles for deer and black bear. No reason to ever switch from the odd 6!

    Currently packing a Savage 25-06. I have used my dad's military sportorized Springfield 03-A3 with much success. This rifle and his military career is somewhat of a mistery. But after seeing him shoot some light is shed. My buddy called it the magic gun. I digress. Even though the 06 served me well the smaller calibers had more bang flops. The Springfield was a coyote slayer! No big holes to fix.

    Always a 30-06 until now, took the plunge on a Savage Axis II in 6.5 CM.
    I've had the 742, 7400, Axis, even an 1917 Enfield. I like the Fusion 165gr, stop n drop every deer shot. I hope the 6.5 is as effective, I have a few hayfield bucks teasing me @ 300 - 400 yards, I look at my '06 and think, yea, it can if I could. Not worth risking a wounded animal. Just get a 6.5 CM and practice.
