    Men and boys, the only difference is the price of their toys.

    What's the goal?

    My current project is a lot cheaper but I'm not looking to win matches.

    It's only "green paper" and you can't take it with you when you pass on. :eek:

    The guy who wins in the end is the one with the most "toys" or in my case the most ground hog safari's.:rolleyes:

    I don't know but I don't think I would spend that much on cleaning and reloading if my motivation was "because I can".

    No knock intended, I'm just curious and I hope it does it for you, however you define "it".

    JMayo, the only thing I see missing is brass and a hornady modified case for measuring chamber. Next time give more details about the build. I always like to see what other guys spend their cash on parts. I’m assuming it’s a benchrest rifle, not fclass or high power. Good luck with your build.

    Some have a Harley Davidson in the drive.
    I have br rifles !
    The brass will go to DJ soon.
    I'll measure them after shooting to get the shoulder bump.
    Details about the build ? I'll let Brian do his thing. It'll be a shooter I'm sure of that.

    .....and 10k really isn’t that bad if compared to a motor cycle, boat, or god forbid a race car!!!

    If it floats, flies or wears a skirt.....it’s cheaper to rent!;)

    A friend tried to get me to join his Country Club when I retired. I suck at golf. They wanted a $50,000 (non refundable) down payment and $2000 a month fee. I got into shooting instead. I think I’m saving money. I’m definitely having more fun and the people are nicer!;):);)
