  1. I had the same rifle. I really liked it for shooting squeaks from the bench. Enjoy!
  2. Looks nice Frank. I'm sure the seats have got to be better than the ones in the Sammi.
  3. I have the Burris pepr on mine. I have no complaints about it
  4. I crimp. I've had an occasional bullet get pushed in deeper. And not just a little bit but a very significant amount (enough to see). So I just play it safe and crimp them all.
  5. I have this one and it's sweet.http://www.midwayusa.com/product/141657/bu...top-ar-15-matte
  6. I feel your pain. I have been using a Lee zip trim for a year now. It makes everything a little easier do to the fact that that it spins the brass and not the cutter. I can trim, deburr, and polish one case in about 30 seconds. check this link to see it in action. Its about a 1:10 min video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcTcD1noIKo Now I choose to run my cases through each time they are reloaded. I crimp my cases so it makes for a much more consistant crimp.The Lee zip trim is cheap too. The trimmer only cost about $15. The spring broke in mine after about 10 months and 1,200 cases later, but I repaired it and it's still going strong 400 rounds later. Yea, it broke, but it was cheap and I'm still sucking the life out of it.
  7. I had a savage 17 hmr. The rifle was nice but the round isn't any thing special to me. It's to light to be accurate in the wind and it's to small on ground squirrels to get them to fly much. It also has too much drop for any distance. If you just want a plinker, I'd stick with the old stand by 22lr. My buddies and I each had one and all three of us sold them within a year.
  8. The way I look at it, I can be right or I can be happy. I chose to be happy. The other Part of that story is this. When I told her I was buying the first gun, she said " Why do you need another gun"? I said I don't, I just want it. Bottom line is, I ended up with one more gun than I had before.
  9. Six months ago I bought a used one that was made in the late 90s at a gun store for $350. It was the trapper model with the 16" barrel. I picked up my grandpas Winchester 6 weeks later and the wife said the first one had to go. So I sold it for $400. The rifle was in generally good condition with some light rust. Weather you're loOking at the 16 or 20 inch barrel wouldn't make a whole lot of difference. I hope this helps.
  10. I've gotten a couple robin hoods. The excitement is gone now and all I see are dollar bills.
  11. That happened to me for the first time just a couple weeks ago. The bullt stayed in the case for me. i didn't realize what the problem was until I got home and pulled the bullet to find no powder in there.
  12. You cant see it because it's out of focus.
