What breeze there is has my carport full of bugs. ThermaCell is saving the day for Evan Williams on ice!  NO cigars or any tobacco  in 5 months!   ;D

I always have Evan Williams at the house. Good deal on the tobacco. I hope it isnít going to be to bad in your area.

The ammo came today. Box had a lot of paper to cushion and protect but the two boxes were wrapped together and looked like something you would see on National Geographicís Border Wars.
I thought it would have a larger polymer tip but looks like a Hornady SST or FXT but with a black tip. I didnít get to shoot any but will in about 4 days when my rotation is done.

With waiting 10 minutes in between shots. I took 7 shots today. First was with a clean barrel. Next three were about 1 1/2 inches. I liked where the vertical impact was so I adjusted to the left. Then my daughter called and since I was outside my cell service was spotty. I forgot I adjusted 4 clicks already and gave another 4 clicks left, oops. Fired and was about 2Ē from center. Then I knew what I did and adjusted 4 clicks back to correct my accidental 8 clicks left.
This was a bummer cause the next two shots were very close but since I took the first shot and was off from the get go I had a 3 shot group of about 2 1/2Ē. That was totally my dumb fault.
Grouped better than the Aframes and had less noticeable recoil. They are rated at 3304fps.

I got my SPís today. They look more like the Spire Point or Interlock SP rather than the Spitzer SPís from what I have seen with the .257 and .300.
Anyone else noticed this?

I ordered two boxes to see how they shoot. I have only shot the Hornady ammo from mine which shoots very well. I will be interested how well these shoot.

Even after shipping. Their shipping is a little high. They are usually quick and everything I have ordered from them has came fairly well packed.

I donít really count the rounds before I shoot, when I start getting larger groups than previous outing I know thats when it needs it. My .308 has only been cleaned 3 or 4 times and I have had it a few years and shot many rounds through it.
If I was thinking really hard about round counts and cleaning my Weatherby I would say 25 or so maybe? Like other say keep barrel cool. I set a timer on my phone.

I sent a pm to you

He has 3 little ones and for the most part he grows produce for his community to sell.
He ainít making a killing. His wife makes us goodies now and then. I like hunting with him and spending time over there when I can, I swear a whole lot less!
I donít know what they do to their kids but 99% of amish kids are very well behaved. They also will seem a little scared of you at first when they are around you.

I went to my amish neighbors house earlier today. I have not been over there but a few times but we keep missing one another.
He told me that he forgot to tell me he shot two more deer during deer season and he shot another coyote. That will make his tally 4 deer and 3 coyotes.
He said both deer and the last coyote just dropped where they were standing. Of the four deer three were bang flops. One deer wasnít hit too well with the first shot. All three coyotes were bang flops. Asked him if he needed more ammo? He said ďno, I still have eight more shells.Ē
He is a good guy and it really helps him out lending him my gun. Besides he lets me sneak over there from time to time.
