Hi, new member in central PA
I figured I'd join since I was finding a lot of answers here for my searches. Still going through the archives... trying not to keep re-asking the same questions. A little about me:
Retired Air Force, Airborne, intelligence collection, codebreaking, linguist/translator. Spent 16 of 20 years overseas.
I've shot out to 1,000 meters but have never taken game past 400m.
Recently started building my own guns. A couple of AR15's, re-barreled a Savage 340 (that got me hooked on Savages), re-built a Savage 10FP, then stripped a Savage 111 (30-06) to the bare action and re-built it as a .300 Win Mag (consistent 3" groups @ 500m).
I reload my own ammo, do as much of my own gun smithing as possible without a lathe (but I do have a small milling machine).
Current projects to build: A light-weight long range hunting rifle for moose/elk, a 1911 45ACP, a long-range AR10.
