I got tied up with other things, and didn't make it out to the gun show. I usually find some good deals at this particular show. Did anyone find anything interesting and/or worthwhile?

I had fun walking the show, but I didn't find anything I couldn't live without. One fellow did have a nice '03 target rifle.

I didn’t make it out, I went to the range instead. Only thing I am looking for is about 3 different powders at this point. I’m good on primers, bullets, and most brass for cartridges reload for.

ALASKA is a "HARD COUNTRY for OLDMEN". (But if you live it wide'ass open, balls'to the wall, the pedal floored, full throttle, it is a delightful place, to finally just sit-back and savor those memories while sipping Tequila).

Ramshot Hunter, RL-23, and RL-26 at the moment.
I’m not hurting at the moment, just starting to get low.

Thanks! I started using Hunter about 1.5 years ago now, and really like it. I found out my .270 WSM really likes RL-23, and the RL-26, I’ve about convinced myself I can do without.

Almost bought the 7 years ago but wanted to hold out for the 6.5 that never materialized. Had a semi-custom 6.5 Rem Mag built back then and never looked back. Still a fan of the 7wsm...

Unless you could get a stash of brass or find some 300 WSM brass to resize to .270 WSM, I’d not buy one today. My wife bought me a 6.8 Western as well, and I’ve resorted to necking down Norma 7 SAUM brass and fire forming it. Loaded the first few last night for it.

ADG make good 300 WSM brass and now that most guys have stocked up, it's not vanishing outta stock as fast, do a search and you can find 3-4 places that have it in stock

ADG 300 WSM brass
