When I  order(win) a new caliber gun, I order loaded ammo, brass, dies and bullets at the same time. In this case, I have a scope and rings on hand. The amazing part is all look to arrive on the same day for once from four different sources. Midway, Midsouth and Graf's for the parts and Fur Feather and Fin for the Ruger 450 Bushmaster!   ;D  Being 100% cynical, I'll believe it when it happens!

I was just reading an article about a bear attack near Naples, Florida. It's just about across the state from me, maybe 75 miles.   :)

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Christmas Card

My now retired Elk outfitter and longtime friend sent me this card. It's a photo from John Fandek of Mountain Zone Photography in Cora Wyoming. I think it is a cool picture.  "An Unlikely Pair" :)

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Reloading Manuals

I was just loading Speer bullets for my 325 WSM and noticed my Speer Manual #14 is getting a bit dog eared. It is almost 11 years old. I just emailed Speer to see if #15 is in the works. I don't remember them going this long before and my library starts at #9 .   :)

Every 6 months, I "oil" my knife collection. 2 reasonably expensive knives I used to open taped packages needed to have clean the tape residue from them.  Over 100 year old Hoppe's #9 came through perfectly!

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / Lesson learned
« on: November 15, 2017, 03:21:55 PM »
While mounting my new scope, my GSD on the carport went ape shit crazy. I heard a voice say "Oh SHIT" In the very few minutes it took me to get there, the dog has hackles raised, ears laid back and is totally wound up. The front gate is open. Nobody around!  I put a pin in the gate as the dog would chase cars,unless he grew thumbs, not possible for him to open it. The dog never left the carport. I did check for a blood trail. I have signs warning of the dog's presence as the power company had to read the meter inside the fence. It has been done remotely for a few years. The only meter reader that comes by is the gas company and that meter is outside the fence and the guy knows the dog by name. I wish I had a video of that dork loading his pants!

 Funny, but it works! My hunting good luck charm is a buck 118 "personal" knife my dad gave me in 1966. What's yours?

Around the Campfire (General Discussion) / scopes

After some serious shopping around for a specific scope and finding the same price everywhere, I chose the most reliable seller, Midway! I ordered a 6.5-20X50 Vortex Viper to upgrade on power for my 6.5 Creedmoor Savage BA10 Stealth from a 3-10X50 Vortex.
