Its a reload.....
Reload of Dec 8th show...
I saw this in the gun store the other day. I think I want it.
What do y’all think?
Maybe with a 4x-16x scope?
Sweet! Definitely needs a scope. It’s be nice in any .270cal, .308cal or .300cal Win-mag. What cal are you looking at?
Saturday I took my ccw 4 hour renewal class here in Kern County CA. Had a shockingly pleasant surprise.
Instructor said we can now 10 handguns on our permit. It has been limited to 3 for at least the last 15 years.This is just in my county. Most the others won’t even issue permits. This is great.
The only one they had was in .223. I’m not sure if the other calibers are still available. They’re not a current production model.
You should be able to carry whatever you want.
I can, but it has to be listed on the permit. Don’t forget, this IS CA.
Wow, from 3-10! That’s good news. How’d that happen? Usually in blue states, they’re reducing everything firearm-related. Here in PA, there’s no limit for handguns or long guns.
“Instructor said we can now 10 handguns on our permit”
You could do the lead role in a “Mummy” picture carrying that many.
.223’s all they have on GunBroker...
Good deal or no?
Here’s one in .270 at ArmsList:
Nevermind; that ArmsList was a “Want To Buy” listing, instead of a sale.
I like the stainless look on that .270.
Here’s the original Browning description on the x-bolt varmint special.
Good deal on a Nikon for $199? Yes.
This one’s also intriguing, too, with the quick-adjust turrets:
What calibur are you looking for? What are you wanting to do with the gun? Varmints, paper, other?
This Vortex has some good reviews.
From what little I can find, the .273 model was produced for the Shot Show only; can’t find anything about .308 or .300 WM, but it seems there just aren’t many for sale. Probably now collector items, and appreciating in value.
Shooting for fun. Maybe an occasional varmint hunt.
No prairie dogs in these here parts, though. Probably have to head out to the panhandle for that.
That’s what I was thinking. The .223 is not going to be a precision long range gun, but would be fine for small varmints and cheap to shoot.
Then you have lots of choices. More if you reload. 243 is a good all-round caliber. It's a tack driver with various offerings, including deer pills.
I like those big turrets.
Cabelas has 22/250 and 308 in stainless.
Man, that’s a nice rifle.
Hey, Ted Nugent will be over in your neck of the woods for a good cause.
But the stainless is ~$200 more than the one I was looking at. 22-250 is kind of a hot round, ain’t it?
I’ll have to keep that in mind.
Looks like the libtards are not happy (read comments)...
I know nothing of the 22/250. Wish I did though.
I guess I’ve read it’s kind of a hot rod round, but I’m not sure.
E. Arthur Brown Company is having an end of year sale.
Whoa!,.......that’s a rocket huh?
I just ordered 5 add’l cases of MRE/ Yoder’s Canned Bacon. I ate the first case in BLTs, and gave some cans can away to family & friends. Delicious!
...and 1 case of MRE/ Yoder’s Hamburger-Ground Beef
Both have a 10yr life, and are going into the basement shelves’ preps.
I might just get some of the ground beef.
CCW here in Colorado is not tied to a particular gun. I would be leery of providing the statists any gun serial numbers.
How is it different that a an AR? Except it’s purdy and won’t scar the Libtards as much?
I can see why it would be a popular varmint load.
I probably won’t be doing enough of that sort of thing to justify the extra $$ & effort.
Canned bacon? Do you cook it or heat it up?
Yeah, they get up and MOVE!! One of my favorite cartridges for the roll yer own hand jive. My usual powder/projectile recipe gets ‘em out and about to right around 3975 fps. I’ve had ‘em faster but no need for it really. Just a fun all around smaller Cal. round in my opinion.
It’s going to be way more accurate than your typical AR. Varmint shooters will typically use lighter bullets, longer barrels and a slower barrel twist rate.
You can trick-out an AR to be a pretty good varmint shooter, usually with a 20 inch or longer stainless barrel with a 1:9 or 1:8 twist.
The one I’m looking at has a 1:10 barrel twist for shooting lighter weight bullets (higher velocity).
I guess I don’t understand the concept of barrel twist vs. velocity in long guns.
Is a a 1:20 twist more accurate vs. 1:10? Wouldn’t that need much more powder?
I only bought the AR and SCAR because 0bama was going to take that right away from me.
Give me a shotgun and I can knock the eye out of a burglar at 10 feet...if my contacts are in.
But I used to have my way with dove and ducks though.
It’s a good, solid round...
No screwdrivers, no taking your eye off the scope; just dope it in. I like the solid adjustment “clicks”. I like mildots, too.
Ditto; it looks ‘sleek’.
The longer the bullet, the faster the spin rate needed to stabilize it. That means heavier bullets need a higher spin rate, 1:9 is faster than 1:12 (one turn in 9 inches vs. one turn in 12 inches). But a light bullet spun faster than needed is less accurate than spinning at the least rate for stability. That is why varmit rifles often have a slower spin rate...because they are made for light, explosive bullets.
Heavy bullets need a faster twist in order to stabilize. Otherwise they will tumble. A longer barrel will typically give you higher velocity - more time for powder to burn. You can use a slower burning powder. I’m not sure, but guess that would give you a lighter recoil too.
Sloppy Joes.... mmmmmmmmmmm!
That bacon is delicious and has 50-60 slices/per can x 12 cans, and is a far better buy than bacon by the pound. No muss, no fuss, just warm-up and make BLTs and grilled cheese/ham and bacon, with a large bowl of home-made ham & bean soup, all day long. Woo-Hoo! Life is good.
