    Hunting

    Shouda done that when I lived there.
  3. Earlier
  4. Saw this on the interwebs the other day. Looks like a Shockwave but with CS24C speakers. I like the center of the horn tweeters. It looks like the same TX1000 remote. Iā€™m curious to know what the blue switch is for. Bluetooth maybe?
  5. that was interesting some day I will try loading shotshells.
  6. Wow that's an impressive increase Bob!
  7. Yesterday I took the shot out of 48 Federal Heavyweight BB Coyote 3" 1-1/2 oz factory loads. I plan on loading this Federal Heavyweight BB shot in some of the 3-1/2" Federal Heavyweight 1-7/8 oz Turkey load hulls that I have. The 3" 1-1/2 oz loads have 62 FHW BB pellets per shell. I ended up loading 73 FHW BB pellets in the 3-1/2" Federal hulls. It shows you just how dense the 15g/cc FHW BB pellets are compared to the 12g/cc HW13 BB pellets, there is 73 FHW BB pellets in 1-7/8 oz and there is 86 HW13 BB pellets in 1-7/8 oz. Look below at the yardage increase the 15g/cc FHW BB shot has over the 12g/cc HW13 BB shot. HW13 BB shot at 1225 fps gets 3.70" of gel penetration at 57.7 yards Fed HW BB shot at 1225 fps gets 3.70" of gel penetration at 94.6 yards.

    Scope for 17HMR

    I agree I liked that primary arms 4x16 you had on one of your Ar's you build so many I lost track which one it was..

    Well, I've heard enough to hit the brakes on the BSA...thanks fella's. Next on the list is a Bushnell 4-12 Dawn and Dusk , if that goes awry then it's back to Vortex for me.

    Sounds like me at the bar in the old days šŸ˜‚. The one that keeps surprising the Hell out of me is that 3-9x Redfield on your Tikka! I just wish it had a little more magnification. Certainly great for coyotes, but them squirrels are a little small for my blind eyes lol.

    Oh come on they are great scopes so it gets blurry when you turn up the power.

    Scope for 17HMR

    Run away from the BSA. For a great price try this. I bought one a couple months ago for my new 17hmr but ended up putting it on the .264LBC instead. I've never been a huge fan of illuminated reticles or exposed turrets, but the turrets are solid and the kind that have to be lifted to adjust. The illuminated reticle ended up being nice for night hunting with the .264. It's decent glass in a 30mm tube, and although I've had no problems, Primary Arms is lifetime warrantied and well known for super fast shipping and excellent customer service. I just bought another one last week (couldn't pass up a $100 refurbished) for the new .458 SOCOM. https://www.primaryarms.com/primary-arms-4-16x44-illuminated-mil-dot-scope-pa416x
  13. New T-Bolt waiting for optics. Did a forum search for BSA Sweet 17 scope reviews but nothing came up. I realize this is not the top end model, got a Vortex on the 223 and love it but simply cannot justify the cost for a 150 yard max shot rifle. I spied this BSA scope with the range compensating turret for 17HMR and wonder if any of you have hands-on experience with this type of turret or brand? There are 2 models...one with the parallax adjusting side turret and a less expensive model with an adjusting objective lens. I'm personally unfamiliar with this and wonder how robust one style is against the other? I suppose that the glass may be better quality on the side turret adjusting model as well as the price is significantly more but need real world opinions. Any BSA Sweet 17 owners out there willing assist?

    Congratulations on your new truck Frank! I bought one about 6 weeks ago. I ran out of windshield wiper fluid in my Toyota and had to make a decision. LOL IMG_0364 by Robert Morris, on Flickr It has way more power and gets better mileage than my Toyota Tundra did. I just drove a little over 600 miles from Williams Ca down to my house and then over to Thousand Oaks and back to my house. It averaged 19.8 miles per gallon over those 600+ miles. From Williams to Lost Hills the cruise control was set on 75 to 81 mph.

    It sounds like you made the right choice Frank. Happy motoring in your new ride.

    I bought a new truck

    Earlier this year Wifezilla decided that we needed a camping trailer so we could take the dogs camping. I bought a small 18', single axle trailer and then fixed up the 2004 GMC Z-71 4x4 (5.3 L engine) with 150,000 miles on it, with new tires, battery, hoses, belts, sparkplugs, etc. Pulling the grade over to the coast the truck wouldn't hold 50 MPH with the <4,000 Lbs trailer but it was OK. Last month the instrument cluster in the GMC went out and it was $500 to fix that, then last week my remote door openers quit working, the shop says that it's a computer problem and could be $1,500, then the A/C compressor decided that it won't turn off, one of the switches is bad but the shop doesn't know which one, one is $250 and the other is $300, then, last Saturday I noticed an oil spot on the driveway and it's right at the transmission/engine joint so it looks like a rear main seal, (my mechanic says $1,500). I was looking at spending between $3,000 and $4,000 in repairs on a 14 year old truck so I decided to trade it in on a new 2019 Ram 1500 4x4 with the 5.7L Hemi. I go from 300 Ft-Lbs of torque to 410 ft-lbs and get better gas mileage to boot.

    Aqueduct Stripers a little bigger this year!

    I used to fish downstream of Buena Vista golf course and caught some nice ones there. I need to get out more.

    LOL, It's both weight and effective muzzle brake. My 50 BMG weigh over 30Lbs. My 338 Lapua at 16.5 lbs, This new 375 Cheytac I'm building would probably in the neighborhood of 28 lbs.

    Amazing visual line up, don't know much about that higher technology of really long range shooting...surprised to see 'your' case has no belt. I'm curious, are you just a tough guy or is the rifle weight responsible for keeping recoil at an acceptable level?

    Very impressive Rommel!
  25. I have everything. Just waiting for the rifle. The 375 Cheytac (To the left of 50 BMG) loaded with 353 grain Lehigh Solid Match. I can push this baby at 3200 fps and will remain supersonic to 2,750 yards depending on the elevation.

    Very good eating. If you trim the red meat off of the fillets they are really good.
