Very nice!!!!! Pulling 50 and hunting with 45 will make a big difference in your accuracy.

I can probably shoot 270, just havent had the chance to. 30-06 is too much for me right now.

Okay, I will chime in. You don't need a 30/06, not even as an adult. Why not just get a 308 and be done with it. Or a 243, which will take anything in Texas.

.30-06 isn't ideal for texas.

you'd be better off with a .25-06 or a .270.

sell your .22-250 and get a new rifle

My host from GA who is pretty much my uncle said he'd give me his Browning A-Bolt Meddalion if I keep a 3.6GPA thru HS. And dad wants a 270.

When you take physics in a couple years you should try to prove or disprove that theory.... your going to be highly unhappy if you try to prove it

LIke the grouping was maximum 2" without adjustment. That will kill a deer. Okay more than 80% of THF shoot dime diameter groups with 223s adn 308s at like 500yd but i dont care for that and im still just a kid. Let me try to get a pic.
