    What barrel length was your 6.5 Grendel on the rifle you used to take this buck. At that range still pretty good shooting and impressive bullet performance for an A-Max that far out.

    All of these fell to the 100 TTSX this year:

    My 7 yr old got his first 2 deer, both whitetail does, at 65 and 90 yds with my Grendel.




    With the Grendel, I took my first pronghorn


    along with 2 whitetails and a coyote.

    Here is one from last year taken with the 120 gr Nolser BT

    I used my 14.5" bbl carbine, it is a Colt Lower with A2 Stock, AA enhanced bolt, G10 FF tube, custom tuned trigger, WCI brake pinned on, it has a 3.5-10x44mm Scope with stadia lines. It is a Pentax.

    Nice deer and very impressive results for a 14.5 inch carbine IMHO! I have a 16" and I really like it. Can't wait to take it hog hunting.

    It's a damned shame we can't use rifle for deer in Illinois.

    I mean what is the difference, shotguns can reach 250yds easily now.

    Those Hornady SST are accurate like large caliber rifle at 200yds, I have shot them and get 2" groups at 200yds.

    My Benelli M1S90 Tactical with the rifled bbl on it shoots like a damned Beowulf, only the ammo is twice as expensive as a Beowulf.

    Some are modifying a WSSM case to make it legal for Illinois. Dtech is making uppers. I think the 458 socom is legal too.

    Olympic Arms already makes WSSM uppers. What needs to be modified? I understood you could use pistol calibers in Indiana, is that not also the case in Illinois?

    What weird laws!!!

    Washington has its weird ones too. You can legally buy and own suppressors, even attach them to weapons, you just can't FIRE the weapon with a suppressor attached. Makes sense, Huh?

    That is Indiana, Illinois does not allow rifle for deer, unless muzzle loaders.

    http://www.dnr.illinois.gov/hunting/...TrapDigest.pdf

    See page 10

    It is not only illegal to use rifle for deer, but it is also illegal to even possess a rifle in the field during deer season for any reason.

    Illinoistan, where the progressives feel at home.

    Classic case where 1 or 2 counties dictate what laws are for the rest of the state. A concealed weapon bill just passed out of committee to the house floor this week. I bet the bill has a chance of passing in the house, who knows about in the state senate but I wouldn't be surprised if our Governor wouldn't veto the bill. A lot of Illinois gun laws are because of Chicago/Cook County and the far Northeast of the state. In reference to allowing people to hunt deer with rifles in Illinois I guess there is a concern some idiot from Chicago might shoot some farmers cows from a greater range than they can with a muzzle loader or shotgun.
