    Thanks for sharing Alex.
    Didn't realize the dasher had been around that long.
    I have a new barrel that will delivered to Dan very soon..... yes it will be a 6 Dasher.

    Enjoyed this very much. Thanks. I am sure Schatz could add another chapter to this. His first trip to a Colorado 1,000 yard match with the new Dasher is another great story.
    Thanks!!

    One of the best stories is Richard's first trip to Deep Creek with a Dasher. If you get the chance, ask him about it. Without him, maybe we'd still be shooting 6.5x284s?

    I wish we could still but custom 6mm's for fifteen cents a piece. See Getners ad On page 2. I paid double that for a box of his bullets recently and still thought it was a good buy ??

    Great article, but what the heck is the Green-X lubricator?

    Amusing seeing on p19 that optical rangefinder. Another example of how lucky we are with the modern gear.

    Thanks for sharing. I love the 22 Dasher for my Groundhog hunting.
