Deers? LoL where u from?
Quick patrol tonight netted this young one.
From a struggling immigrant family originating from a far off land and determined to enjoy the fruits (do real good) of the American experience. I suffer from an occasional cultural hiatus now and then, especially when involved in reminiscence of critical and exciting events like shooting deers. Would the smack of a .224 62 Speer Gold Dot kill deers better than deeper trauma inflicted by a .224 62 grain Barnes Tipped 3X shock bullet at the same velocity?
"ten dollars sez he picks his nose"...Caddyshack.
Another fine Bill Murray film.
Nice shot Reb

I own a 22-250 and a 22-250AI. Awesome predator and chuck round. That said, I don’t have the necessary barrel replacement funds to use a 22-250 on colony rodents.
Do they always sleep outside of thier dens belly up like that ?????
"I got twenty sez he eats it."
Once them kids graduate, you can fill that gun safe back up !
Or build the car that has been in storage waiting since 1985
Haha...ya that's just about as enjoyable. I sold a 1971 R/T Challenger back in 1995 a year or so after my son was born. It was a young man's dream car I purchased in 1978. Had the infamous 426 hemi w/cross ram manifold (twin 4x4 carbs) and looked like it just rolled off the showroom floor. Purchased it from my uncle. Figured time to sell it with a family starting. Could use the money and didn't need the extra maintenance. We'll, it's a move I regret to this day. Can't Imagine it's value today but as important, my son would have drove it on graduation day and it would be a great summer toy. At least I have the memories.
6XC zero freebore, small rifle primer.... Coming soon!!!
Ya, I have a similar habit. I sell guns I regret, keep ones i shouldn't. And I sold the Cuda, kept the Firebird. The firewall of the Cuda is worth more today than the Firebird. i always pick the wrong ticket, the wrong car. And a few weeks ago my daughter got a call from autozone. Asking for me, on her phone. She says, sorry, wrong number. After hangs up, remembers she entered me in a sweepstakes for a 2019 Camaro. Yep, the drawing was that day. i have rotten luck.
What kinda Firebird?

I have a 69
Enjoyed the thread. I'm waiting on an 8-twist 22-250 Ackley barrel from McGowen to build my first 22-250. Ya'll have me really pumped!
I have a number of McGowen barrels, including a 8 twist .22-.250 that has some 2800 rounds thru it since 2012, my wife shoots steel with it using the 68 grain Hornady HPBT & H414. Great performer but now up for a re-barrel job. No rifling for first 1/4 inch or so but still shoots MOA @ 300.
Just when I thought everything was settled with my load - 55 gr Sierra Varmiteers at about a 1/3 minute of angle - my buddy gives me 53 grain Vmaxs. We have been toying with a new secret squirrel powder. He also sent me a pic of how they perform.
Thats at 265 yards.
So at loaded 3 and went over to his place to try a group at 200 yards. He trotted up to see how I did, came back and said you're done. Mine is the group on the left in the circle. This is one hummer of a factory gun. Curious the Hornady manual states that they aren't stable in a 14 twist, they are in mine.
Picked up a Cooper 22-250AI 2 years ago. The recipe is 55 grain VMax's pushed by a stout load of RL17. By far the most accurate rifle I've ever owned. Looking for a good place to hunt ground hogs.
