sully didn't ya already ask about this same gun before....just buy one already....lol....you wont be sorry I promise

the factory stock does suck tho
I see you also drive a Cummins...You have good taste in trucks, as well. I do too. I just sent you a friend request over on CF. I go by AMM over there. You MIGHT know who I am over there.

My Accumark .257 Wby shoots insane, as well. I see the S2's are around $1K.....And the Accumarks now retail for over $2K.....I only paid $1,300 for my Accumark brand new, so I guess it doesn't sting so bad that a sub-$1,000 rifle is shooting almost as good! LMAO

    I hardly ever get on CF any more. I was around on it until it all started changing. Then I jumped over to diesel bombers where I later became a vendor but I'm going to let that lapse after this year. I stick with CompD any more. If you have been to any of the big diesel events in the last 2 years you might know of me and my wife. She has a super street / 10.50 index truck she calls "Heartbreaker" it was in Diesel World back in Dec in the girls gone diesel edition.

    I've kinda been slowly dying out of the diesel performance scene...Too many people have treated me like crap on CF for no reason. So, I decided it best to put my money, time, and effort back into my guns and shooting, like it was before I had a Cummins. Since those hobbies don't require me to deal with a bunch of pricks. LOL I have never been to any of the big meets, so I doubt I would have seen yall. You seem like a good guy, so don't think I'm lumping everyone on CF into that category, just a few bad apples that spoiled it for the rest of them. I haven't even joined a Mustang forum and I've had my '13 GT 5.0 for almost a year now and barely done anything to it. I haven't even tinted the windows yet...Which is generally the FIRST thing I do when I buy a new vehicle.
