New to me anyway lol. Just won the right to send a money order to a guy in Georgia. I found a 221 fireball, Rem. 700 classic on GunBrokers. Sent the FFL copy and a USPS money order this morning. Damn I can hardly wait lol. I bought a set of dies yesterday off E Bay. Merry Christmas you old goat, me, lol. Ed

Good for you Ed. Another remmy to your collection. Do you think you are becomming a remmy hoader? Now when the squeeks come up you better get the camera going! You need to get pic's of the squeek safari. You, the gun and ammo bearers.

Ed, Ed, Ed. Oh, Ed! Can't you find a Sako or something else that will shoot? :pot: Seriously, that should be a fine rifle. Congrats on the find.

A 221 fireball. I've always looked at that round with interest. Keep us posted on how it shoots. I may go out later this week to "manage" a few local squirrels. Photos, yes. Always good to treat yourself to a new toy.

Rod, lol Sakos are fine rifles, and so are Rugers, but I am into Remmys right now lol. As soon as I get enough Remingtons I plan to start on Rugers, then Sakos lol. Hey I am just doing it by the alphabet. A guy needs to have guide lines lol. Ed

Congrats on your new purchase, Ed. The 221 fireball is a great caliber. The .17 fireball is another great one, that I believe you already have.

Uh, why buy the rest, when you already own the Best (Remmy)? Oh wait, I shouldn't be saying that, should I?! :oops: :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

No Frank, I have a 17 rem., but the 17 fireball is on my list. I still have to get a 17 fireball, a 222 and a 243, but I need another 223 too lol. Oh and a Remington in 204 ruger so I can trade off my Salvage. Ed

:smiley-funny-post-sign: I had the wrong .17 then... The Rem 17 is obviously a great one, but for some reason I really like the 17 fireball. Friends of mine have both calibers, in Remington rifles of course ( :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:) and I really love shooting them. The 221 Fireball you just bought is another favorite of mine which I've also shot. While I've owned the 204 & 243, I am just not much of a fan of those 2 (fine) calibers. But hey, is what makes the world go 'round, right?! lol

Geez, you're a bad influence on me, Ed, and I get myself in trouble just fine all by myself. :D (just kidding of course) lol
