Re: Favorite 6.5 Cartridge
Well there goes Stoky...good thing we got rid of him before he learned that there are ways to ameliorate short barrel life with nitrocarbonizing, HBN bullet coating, SMc case design i.e. long necks & radial shoulder design, 5r-3r polygon rifling, carbon wrapped barrels, holding long strings of shooting to a minimum (this ain't bench rest shooting and 10 shot strings don't kill many elk but those first couple should), giving cold barrel shots the emphasis they deserve, opening the bolt and setting the rifle vertical so chimney effect can help cool the throat/bore, using bullets with drive bands to reduce bore friction/heat, using QuickLoad to see which powders are coolest burning, ditto primers,etc..
Yep, there are just too many of us advanced LRH types (that were never young and dumb or green into a new sport) in this country trying to pull together to save the 2nd Amendment and we need to weed out those coming in below us that might replace us as we age and leave the prairie.
Yeah, Stoky we don't need nor want you on this forum. Get you as_ out of here!
Now...I feel much more secure with my favorite wildcat...but I'm not too sure about yours, just keep it to yourself newbie.
