      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I just bought the new 2005 900 liberty 50th anniversary Polaris RMK! This sled rocks! The seat is 4" higher. Totally redesigned front suspension, 10 position handlebars, LED altimeter, thermometer, 159" x 2.4" track, slightly lighter than last years 800, better fuel efficiency, computer chip- so no more jetting for different elevations, and oh so much more!

specialed-

 

You're on! That's the main reason I bought it. (wrecked my 2003 RMK this past spring) Of course I am a snowboarder (have a split board) yet ride with primarily skiers. Keeping up has never been an issue...

 

You have a sled up there on the east side?

 

To a long and severe winter... bigdrink.gif

No sled yet. But I'd sure as fuck like to get one ... too much sick shit that can be accessed.

I was going to get one this summer, but I bought new skis this spring and a hunting rifle, so its on the backburner for now.

What did you end up getting? I'm looking for one now and curious what you got.

If I was an avid ice climber instead of a hack the "sick shit" would be even sicker...

 

Screw the backburner. Come January you'll be regreting it...

Remington 700 Series .270. Used but in great condition. Came with an old Weaver scope. I'm going to upgrade though - Leupold makes a 4x-12x for $250.00. As far as I can tell, there isn't a substantial difference b/w a .270, 30-06, and a 7mm mag, which are all fairly similar. 7mm mag will give you a bit more range, and a 30-06 a bit more impact force.

But I doubt I'll be shooting at anything over 200 yards anyway. For dear and even elk, a .270 is a nice caliber. When I was looking for a used rifle seemed like .270s and 30-06 are pretty easy to find, since they are so common.

 

I'd also like to get a lever action 30-30 with open sights for hunting down by the rivers and in the woods. That would be fun for target practice too.

Cool, thanks for the info Pete.

 

That Leupold scope is the one most of my hunting buddies use and it's pretty nice for the price. Most of them favor the Remingtons or Savages in 30.06 or 7mm. I've recently converted from a bow after 15 years of chasing pacific blacktail through the underbrush around here and took a nice mule deer in 2003 after about 20 minutes of hunting with a borrowed rifle. I'm hooked and my wife offered to buy me a new rifle for a gift. Leaning toward a Winchester model 70 super shadow but, still unsure of the caliber.

Shit if you want to bowhunt, you can take a doe real easy out here. Muley Bucks are defenitly a bit more challenging with a bow though.
