I was burnt plum up after hanging guttering. Dad was ready to go, my boys wanted to hang around and play.
So how did all those rifle shoot? Did you get to stretch them out?

John we shot til about dark.
Tucker came down and we went to 1000.
The little 243 youth shoots real good with the 105 RDFs.
Hit the gong on the 4th shot with it.
Mark said Tuckers gun cheats, lol
Mark hit it with his 264 win mag.
The 25 hit it but I run out of adjustment.
We had a good time...

Doug, only 1...
And he shoots a sa sa saa...so I guess
No sa sa saa...went the distance at 1000.
He bought a sa sa saa...long range hunter in
6.5x284 and the front action screw was crossed
threaded from the factory. Tried to load for it and
it just didn't shoot like it was supposed too. Took it to a guy
yesterday and he run a tap through it and got it fixed. Seemed like
a threa or 2 had a burr. Got to try it again but he's done give up
on it. Told me to sale it or I could keep tring to fine a load. He said he's
done with it. He's a good friend or it wouldn't be in my building...lol


Underdog

PS...he did have a RUGER #1 2506 but didn't try at 1000
and his Win. 70 264 did make it to 1000

Salvage

That witness must be a great guy but I think that's why they call 'em Salvages, Donnie. First one I owned, a .223 12FV, had bad threads in the scope base holes. Had to retap 'em. I was told it's because they are mass production guns and sometimes the machining isn't all that good, or the tap was worn, or something. That one was the only one I've ever had a problem with the build. The rest of the problems I've had with them was all due to a loose nut behind the trigger. The last 3 I've bought are all Cabelas "Exclusives" and were $419, on sale for $319, with a Savage $100 factory rebate. Best $219 rifles I know of. :D
