Most sportsmen, including myself, are always looking for ammunition. Whether for hunting or self-defense, a lot of types of ammo just aren’t found in our local gun shops.
Case in point.
I recently learned that my 12-year-old grandson who lives in Oklahoma had drawn a youth antlerless elk tag in game management Unit 6A.
This is the second year in row he has drawn an Arizona elk tag.
Last year he was successful, but had a very tough hunt in Unit 10.
On that hunt he used a Remington Model 7 youth rifle with a shortened fiberglass stock. It fits him perfectly and is chambered for .260 Remington caliber. It was the pre-cursor to the now very popular 6.5 Creedmoor round.
I wanted to pick up a few boxes of the factory Remington ammo with the 140-grain bullet that Remington makes.
Checking with our local gun shops failed to produce any of that particular ammo. It’s no wonder, as that ammo is…
