Wasn't Grace staying with you?

She has to pass her State Boards for Cosmetology even though she would have to hold her license for a year before it could transferred down in Texas. We just want her to do that because she started it and we want her to finish it.

Shawndel, Anna and Anna’s friend left for Indy this morning.
Not coming back until Oct. Could everyone pray for us while we are apart?
I would of liked to seen Anna a little more emotional about leaving but she wasn’t.

I have kept smelling something in the truck bit couldn’t find it. Went to Walmart for a gas can and thought, “ I better get some Spray”. Well, I found the culprit while in the parking lot.
It was a package of meat in a vacuum sealed bag that had swelled to the size of a youth football and had a pin hole size hole in it from swelling. Not big enough to keep up with the decaying meat in the bag.
A buddy of mine had joked about it and I thought for sure he gave me a “going away gift bag”. He denied it but did get a good laugh of it. I used 2 cans of Frebreeze so far. Still have one can.

That is A thumper Chris. I know Roger had 1 in 338 as well. He told me he had a hard time reloading for his as well. I forget what he used in it. But it was factory ammo.

He used 250 grain Remington Green box. He is one of the reasons I got it. Told him about it and he was all giddy.

I thought I would start out with what I hoped to end up with. And that was browning bxc 185 gr
30-06
As I have said on here many times. My browning mk1 bar is real particular and shoots browning factory ammo better than anything I have loaded in the past 30 years.  So today I started with the heavier 185 gr. And after dialing it in and letting it cool down I shot my 1st 3 shot group with it. And  was very pleased with the 1 1/2" group. That's all it needs to do. It's strictly A Michigan deer rifle.
And on another good note my old BAR didn't shoot them to Bad either. With A pair 1 5/8" groups.
I will shoot them again in the fall when the temps come down. But like what I seen today.
Hurts my pride some I can't beat there factory loads. But I can live with that.

I was surprised with the accuracy I get from my BAR. I expected larger groups. The reduction in recoil is nice too. Mine being a .338 Win Mag is not a slouch when it comes to power. I can say it really reduced the felt recoil. I got lucky and found Hornady 225 grain SST Superformance ammo on sale and it shoots it well.

That is exactly how our furniture looked when we moved to GA.  LOL!!!!!  Glad you made it.


$15 and $9 Walmart folders and a $16 cooler/coffee table. That small green chair may find it’s way in a blind.
It will do for us for a while. I have an air mattress upstairs.

I have arrived and unpacked the truck minus my grill that is still in the front seat. Lucky for me the one person who transferred with is coming over to help unload it. It’s pretty heavy.
