  1. Yep, I bought the last two boxes of 12 gauge Winchester high brass 7 1/2s at Wally World, I about krapped when it rang up at 12.99 a box, but what the hell.. on a high note, I saw the first Hornady 6.5 Creed 140 ELD's at the farm store that I have seen in 6 months, they have had steady supply of Winchester 7.62 X 51 for the last month or so..
  2. Really, I'm thinking of heading out to Uncle Henry's farm pond, it was unfishable last summer with those damned lily pads.. I like fishing with a buzz bait, but it would be a Texas Rig worm right now!
  3. So does Diamond back have any word on when they might ship your upper?? Guys does this use proprietary pins like the Stag 10?? so 270win, how is your build going so far??
  4. Happy Birthday Rob,, I'll pay for your first hour of therapy,,, I'm a little worried about this group and their pant's down hugs, anyway, checks in the mail!!!
  5. My big tractor has starter issues, and the fuel distributer has a stripped bleed screw that leaks,,, fortunately my little John Deere with a bucket sips fuel, only has a 6 gallon tank. We cash rent our small tillable acres, so I buy most fuel in town in a 5 gallon jerry can, I probably use more to get my brush pile fires started, lol.. last year I had to shut my rifle range down when the corn started getting tall.. I did score another 60 rounds of Winchester xm-80 at Walmart, surprisingly enough.. on a less encouraging note, the local gun hack had a few boxes of 9 mm and 45 hollow point, I though man! turned the box over and 59.99 for 20 rounds,, 😠!!!!!
  6. Glad to hear your rifle is fully functional now, my 18" barrel with rifle gas, started out where you finished at around .082, it functioned fine, but ejection was disappointing. I went with a 5.3 oz 2.5" KAK heavy buffer, ejector and spring and briefly ran the Sprinco orange spring, I ended up at .095 to run that combination, gas block wide open, and it functioned fine with M80 ball, and ejection was much improved. (my 300 Ham'r flings them out about 8 ft in a nice neat little pile) The one issue that I found objectionable with that combination was the effort required to pull it out of battery with the charging handle, it was very stiff, so I replaced the Sprinco with the Wilson 40 coil flat wire... all good now, and that heavy buffer makes my rifle much more pleasant to shoot.
  7. Hey, you're in the People's Republic of Central Obamastan, I know you're enjoying paying a full buck more for every gallon of gas that JB snitzker sells ya, I sure am...
  8. Yep, for sure, Wilson Combat has the same faux AR-10 angled cut on the rear receiver, looks cool, but def cuts down on compatibility.
  9. I'm not surprised, I'm very happy with both of my barrels, I was shooting the Winchester M80 ball today at 160 yards, out of 6 rounds, I had two in the same hole, and two at about an inch from each other in the first group, now the other two?? I really wish I had bought the 16" in the 300 Ham'r.
  10. Wilson Combat currently has the Paul Howe 16", 18" Tactical Hunter, and 20" Super Sniper in stock, you won't be unhappy with one of their barrels, very reasonable for the quality that they produce. The Paul Howe may be next on my list in 6.5 Creed???
  11. So Jong, did you talk to ArmaLite, any luck finding the A upper Bub???
  12. Good advice 98! Sounds good renaissance,,, springco orange arrived this morning, time for a KOLD short range session, that damn thing may be frozen cause it's hella stiff!
  13. Oh we have lots to talk about, I was hoping you might become a regular contributer, now that you have had a great experience...
  14. Nice, I love that, I've got two nice fireplaces, but they are capped... stinks, I've got lots of wood at the farm.
  15. Oh dang, but no doubt the snowmobilers are having a party!
