I hate to throw cold water on this love-fest, but wouldn't this rifle be incredibly loud and have tremendous muzzleblast? I could live with the loss of velocity and the increased recoil but it is the increased noise that would really bother me. This is a hunting rifle meant to be shot in the field. I'm don't like even being around those who shoot magnums with ear protection. This rifle must be very loud.

Considering folks are shooting 15" 308's in T/C encores, that would give a decent answer to the muzzle blast. I have a Ruger ultralight .308, w/ the 20" tube, and its not that bad. I would highly recomend not using ball powders, as I've used them in contenders, and muzzle blast is most pronounced! <P>I would think the 140 gr X bullet could be driven at useful velocities (2700?) from the 16 1/2" barrel, and should have good terminal effects.

Lost count. My guess was 292 in 24 hours, I reckon he hit a couple hundred. We did get BB gun footage, right on que.

Ruger 44 auto would be good for trapped pigs in a pen!

If they were doing their homework I'd have a RAR in 358 with a 20# threaded BBL.


Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms.

The .260 is so passé what with all the Creedmoor and PRC offering of late. I hope I can re-read this thread 17 years from now! LOL!
