This is awesome - hope you run into a good one with rifle in hand.


Thanks Skane, there's more, the old Man's son is still alive, i'll give him the powder and primers along with the 13 bullets I have left his Pappy gave me 30+ years ago, will advise him to load those in his Dads other '06 he still has, with that, i'll ask if we can hunt whitetails on his Dads parents place they homesteaded back in the early 1900's, I have a key to the gate, but want to hunt it with him, this has the makings of a very cool, but reverent and memorable hunt. smile


That’s damn cool Gunner. You’re a helluva fella, no matter what they say about ya!

Hell yeah! I love them pump guns! Remington bolts aren’t my thing but their 760/7600’s are a deer hunters rifle.

Yes Sir, have heard up your way they call em amish machine guns! laugh I've never fired the rifle, the corn cob? pump handle looks kinda cool, iirc the old Gent told me it was made in the early 50's, he bought it brand new when he got home from Korea, that can of IMR-4831 powder he gave me has a price tag of $6.95 ; ]

Dammit! There's a CZ 550 FS in 9.3x62 in the used rack whispering sweet nothings in my ear every time I venture in the store.

I'm such a pushover....

Not only do I not plan a new rifle before next hunting season, I have a Savage 111 action and stock waiting for a new barrel. Bought it a year ago and now an wondering why - I need another rifle like I need cancer.

Right now I'm spending my time building ammo for firearms I already have (something I commonly do this time of year) and, when I find reasonable prices, buying more components. Not that I need them now, either, but I don't see the shortages ending within the next year, maybe two.

No, I'm not a Ruger bigot - just an unabashed fan of their revolvers, M77's and #1's.

A good .30-06 is a 99% solution.

Doubt I'll ever buy another gun.

Have more than I can shoot and keep up with now.



I have a journal to keep up with all I have as far as round count, etc.

I’ve got a new Christensen Mesa in 300 WM that I may try to hunt with if I can hunt out of state. If not, I’ll probably hunt with a new M70 in 30-06.

No plans for anything new unless a deal pops up that I might have components for. But one never knows. Do one?


The old Dutchman once told me that fate watches over fools, drunks, & handloaders. Since getting on the internet, I'm pretty sure he was right.

I recently picked up a Barrett Fieldcraft 6.5 Creed limited edition with the #2 24” barrel. It’s going in a Kimber Montana stock, and will get a set of custom steel rings so I can mount an SWFA 3-9 mil dot nice and low.

I will run it for a bit, and other than perhaps nipping an inch or two off the barrel won’t change anything else.

It should be a keeper.


Anybody who seriously concerns themselves with the adequacy of a Big 7mm for anything we hunt here short of brown bear, is a dufus. They are mostly making shidt up. Crunch! Nite-nite!

I’m interested to see how the Fieldcraft in the Montana stock works and how much modification it takes to fit it. Let us know when you’re done with the projects and post some pics please.
