Re: Rifle suggestions

Yea like that joe0121. I like the idea of ammo availability but a couple of boxes of shells in the gun case should get yu by. Ill always have my 270 with. I just dont know what ill gain for a 3-400yrd shot over a 25 06. More over kill i guess.

joe0121,

Yes they are very similar. I think the only big difference is price.

PS: I can only fit a 1 dollar bill between the barrel & the forearm.

Joesph,

That's a nice looking rifle. But, if you point that thing at my house with the bolt closed, you'd better duck. Because I'm not waiting for it to go off before I start shooting back.

Be safe!!

Yeah, I was thinking in the same lines. I was gonna say, "I bet the neighbors just love you for setting up in your front yard and pointing the rifle at their house!" I just realized upon closer observation you even have your wind vane out. Now that's support for a sport!

Re: Rifle suggestions

No house across the road. Only put the bolt in for the last pictures.

You should have seen me with my back pack with the rifle stuffed in it with 30 pounds of sand walking 1/2 mile every day for 2 months getting into shape for Wyoming. Had quite a few neighbors cheering me on as they passed in their cars.

Re: Rifle suggestions

Well that's good. It's nice to have neighbors that support you instead of calling the police!
