“C.J.V. – I’m tempted but I don’t need another rifle caliber, me”

Re: I Want One!

Very nice.. Wish the round was sub $1... ugh...

So load your own. You’ll have to do that anyway to get reasonable accuracy from the rifle anyway. If you don’t want to pay $30-some plus for 50 cases (See; [more]

Re: Lesson Learned?

I was splittin' a big hunk of Birch wood. I was hammerin' the wedge into the wood with an 8lb sledge hammer and then whackin' it with the splittin' maul. I was about 2/3's the way through this particular hunk when I whacked the wedge with the maul [more]
