    Love the savages! How do you like your stockade prairie dog stock. How was stockade to deal with?

    Nice pics. I have to admit to being a little suprised that I recognized Del Tone's shooting benches and the 100 yard range in your pic!! Had to take a look at your lacation lol!

    Guess I spend too much time there

    Hard to mistake the ugly green benches with any other range. Your not by chance the guy I met out there a couple times with the lefty 22-250 savage that told me about this site are you? Im the one that made the stainless shooting rests.

    I Love the stockade prairie dog, Im actually looking into getting another. They were great to deal with, it took about 2 months to get this stock a couple years ago but that is how long they said it would take when I placed the order. I also made numerous phone calls getting tips on how to best finish the stock since I bought the out of the mold version and he was more than helpful with my questions.

    hey, how is it going !!


    once again the hottest load was the best at 9/16" group. There were no pressure signs and since the hotter the loads got, the more accurate they got, Im going to push them a little faster and hope for improvement but I can certainly live with 9/16" for a coyote round. Unfortunatly my anal side says it's not good enough.

    Oh it's going pretty good. 9/16 is pretty good ;) but I know what you mean about trying to be better. Glad to see you found the site and are exploring it a little. Lots of good guys and great infoe here. Just be warned, it is addicting and may lead to large amounts of money to leave your posession.

    take it easy, Mark.

    I'm interested to hear your comments on the Bushnell 4200 6x24 tactical. I'm interested in this scope but I'm concerned with the 3" eye relief (where most other scopes have 3.5 to 4"). Have you had any issues with the short eye relief? do you know why Bushnell puts such short eye relief on the scope and not others?

    Im in no way a scope/glass guru I just know I really like this scope. It is the highest quality scope I have ever owned and the most expensive which tells you I dont have much to compare it to. The eye releif has never been an issue with me on this scope. I mounted it to my rifle where my eye relief was the best at full magnification and it has worked great ever since through the mag ranges. Not much info for you but it's all I know.:D

    How do you like your Meuller scope? I was looking at the 8.5x25 tac., the price seems to good to be true.
