Re: the wait is killing me!
What a time that was waiting for my 24" 6.8 upper to come in. It was a while ago, and it was about the only place that sold them. I don't recall how long it took, it was a while back. I do know it was worth the wait. There's no cutting/crowning my 24" its fluted, and chrome lined.
I had loads all tuned up for my 18" and was getting over pressure, and sticking cases in the 24". Ended up witching powders entirely.
There are only two seasons: Hunting season, and Getting Ready for Hunting season. -DAD
