    New rifle..... 7mm 08......

    Yeah that's right Jim. That 120 grain is the biggest factory load for the .257 and slowest also. I'll be shooting the 110 grain Nosler Accubonds out of mine at 3460 fps. The Barnes 80 grain TTSX bullets are flying at almost 3900 fps!!! I think those would take a deer no problem as well.

    I'm still waiting on a .257 Weatherby Magnum Vanguard Accuguard that was bought back in December. I've heard great things about the .257 Weatherby Magnum cartridge . It's lights out on deer and a laser beam out to 500 yards or more. From what I've read recoil is about that of a .270 or slightly less. Don't have the gun yet so I can only go by what I've read. Negatives are it's only available in Weatherby and Remington 700 guns I believe. Also the ammo is extremely expensive and extremely hard to find and has to be special ordered cause no one carries it. Not a deal breaker for me because I won't be shooting it much I'll be lucky if I shoot more than 5-10 rounds a year after sight in.

    Good deal flybuster! It really is the best knot for tying on a leader it won't ever come undone if done correctly. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Might not be perfect but I pulled on it as hard as I could and it would not break! I put the braid on the rod & reel and held the tag end in my mouth. Even though the rod was held in place the braid had proper give because of the flex in the tip of the rod. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Yes see what happens! Because braid has no stretch if you have it really tight the wraps will not form correctly. But from my understanding the braid cannot be too loose either. I've been trying to do it with the braid still on the spool not the reel with heavy pressure on the spool so it won't move and tying off the tag end of the braid to my fishing backpack so there's no give. How are you guys getting the right amount of give in the braid? I tried putting the tag end in my mouth but I couldn't get the hang of it. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Having the braid too tight does make a lot of sense Justin because if there's no give in the braid it can't form correctly if my understanding of this knot is correct. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I thought the braid was supposed to be tight though??? I'll try to loosen it up. What's happening and where the problem is occurring is after each wrap the line is binding while pulling it straight before the next wrap. I have to really finagle the leader line back & fourth a few times to get it to wrap correctly. I'll actually feel a click if you will when the leader line goes where it should and gets harder & harder to do the more wraps there are. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Ok this is what's happening my loops are going sideways instead of towards me why is this happening??? I'm pulling the line straight after every wrap and wrapping over then under the braid what the hell am I doing wrong here? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Thanks for the video flybuster! Maybe my problem is having the leader and braid too tight? From all the videos I've seen they said to have the braid tight and didn't really mention how tight the leader line should be I'll try loosening things up.

    Nj flybuster that's how it's supposed to look! I think I tried 8 & 10lb test but maybe I'll try something a little heavier. Did you keep a lot of tension on the leader line while doing the wraps? Also you went over the braid then under it right? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
