Starting on this again

I'm coming around to this project again and am interested in any newly developed loads and experiences with a 6mm TCU, 6x45 (223) or 6x47. I am particularly interested in trying this as a big game...

Nice!

Nice work. I've got one in the freezer that I need to get to the taxidermist. I didn't shoot it though. It was given to me by a friend, but is a silver, sort of like that one.

Most of my Sako's are worth more than I paid for them. I have only sold one, and it was probably the biggest collector of all I own because it was a pre-Garcia Forester in a 243. I bought it for...

Thanks Chuck.

With my eyes and open sights, I think I'll be happy with those sort of groups at 50 yds.

I looked for the Martini's. I'd really like one, but I don't want a project gun right...

If you decide you want to go with 25 gn for fox, you might consider slowing it down. Lighter, faster bullets don't necessarily mean a smaller crater.

I like the 30 gn for coyotes, but still,...

Funny you should say that.

I have or had a 39A. I got it for sentimental value because I had one of those as a kid that was stolen. It's just not the same as having the actual gun. So, I sold it and the guy is supposed to...

I have to agree with Sicero. Every squirrel I've shot with my 204 sent squirrel components into the branches of the trees. For coyotes and the like though, I like the 40 gn Berger. It isn't as...

Thanks for the advice.

I want something I can throw 22 shorts in pretty easy, or else I'd go with a bolt action. For varmints I like my 17 HM2 or HMR and so don't need a repeater really.

Please excuse my ignorance on this, but are you pulling bullets from live rimfire ammo to get the cases for reloading, or is there somewhere you can purchase primed cases?

Glad no one was hurt.

There's a lesson in that for the grandchildren too.

Thanks.

Those are nice. A little pricy, but very nice work.

I like the switchbarrel 22LR and 45-70 model.

That's a combo you don't see everyday.

Definitely getting closer. But, I think you are right. I don't think it was made in a rimfire.

You should just buy that one and re-barrel it to a 17m4.
