    Thanks to another LRH member, I became aware of a gun of mine being sold on another site and I did not post it there. Here is the link. Beware! It is a scam! I don't want to see anyone get ripped off.

    ARMSLIST - For Sale: Winchester 70 338-06 AI Ackley Improved TRADES?

    Maybe the member who discovered this will post and validate my claim.

    The same thing happened to me as well on Arms list. I reported the false add and it was erased in a couple of days.

    I too experienced someone trying to scam a sale on arms list. I was the buyer and noticed the pictures were the same, but the price was different. Definitely a lot of scammers out there, buyers beware!

    Man, this world keeps getting worse and worse......These scammers need to get a life and get a real friggin job and leave those of us who work for our stuff, alone!

    Seems like everytime I turn around there's some new scam out there...

    That almost makes me not want to list anything on ArmsList, or even inquire about something on there if it's a potential scam...

    I am having some fun with this tool, asking him a bunch of dumb questions, making him look up reloading data, etc....I will start trying to work him over on the price pretty soon.

    Good morning pls are you still interested if yes when are u making payment?

    I am, let me make a bank transfer.....Monday morning ok?



    Do you remember the guys name you bought the rifle from?


    ok i will be expecting you. and i cant remember those names ok

    Pretty cool you have this rifle. I have never shot this caliber before. What bullets were you going to shoot out of it?

    A Sierra Bullets

    I like Sierra stuff too.....what weight are you thinking? Powder charge? I have no experience with the 338-06.

    Frankford Arsenal DS-750 Electronic Powder Scale 750 Grain Capacity and i tired high BC bullets of 125-150 grain weight

    How did the 125 gr bullets shoot? what powder did you use with them?

    well hitting a 8 inch round steel plate at 100 yrds off hand, is good enough for me. using 2400 powder.

    You are using pistol powder in a rifle ? hmm,.....never thought of that

    are you still interested or not

    Yes, VERY much. I am just trying to get some info. I assumed you knew a lot about this cartridge and was trying to get some more information about it.

    well you need to buy it then do that your self ok so what are your next plans

    are you there why quiet ?

    I was hoping you could help me by answering a few questions.....this is a LOT of money for me and any help I can get re: bullets, powders, etc is greatly appreciated.

    ive told you all you need to know ok what else again now.

    Did you ever shoot any heavier bullets? Like Berger 300's?

    What scope did you have on it? Is the scope for sale? maybe I could buy both?

    I've tried mostly Berger bullets, 168 and 185 gr. and i have on it a Leupold VX-3 3.5-10x40 mm Rifle Scope for sale making it 1500$


    I tried to make the fonts different to make it easier to read, but it is still pretty easy to follow.... LOL. I will see how long I can string him along.
