    A great day at cabela,s checking everything out. only thing they never have what I want most times. wanted some 45-70 rcbs cowboy dies (no have ) wanted warn 1 inch low rings either regular or quick detach(no have ) wanted 2 boxes of 350g 458 bullets (only had 1) bought a box of 300g ones,neoprene gloves .

    went to the bargain cave an son bought a trijicon rmr small red dot originally 550 marked down to 374 an a great deal. guess I should have bought the other one as they had 2,but didn,t know I would need it till we got almost home :eek: he said I'll swing by my house an pick up your S&W 460 :oops:

    Picked it up an he gave me 3 boxes of shells,set of carbide dies,2 boxes bullets . only fired the few shells that are empties in th one box I got.I traded him the old Marlin 93 I got from him an some cash for it. it already had my leupold pistol scope on it he was using an a high dollar set of rings. I will only use the scope for testing loads then it will get a tiny red dot like my son got today after I check his out if I like it.I love new toys:p

    Way back when Moby Dick was still a minnow I had a Rem 700 in 25-06, I couldn't get it tuned quite right for some odd reason so I swapped it for a

    Ruger 77 in 25-06, still have that one. I never got bit by the Weatherby bug, they just seemed to be overkill for anything in Pa and just to expensive to shoot much.
    One of these days we shall meet, be a overnight for me cause I'm just far enough away from you guys to make it tough for a day trip.

    That was me last week, I'm doing better this week, I think I need to spend a few days on a beach with toes in the Ocean with a fruity concoction in my hand :D.

    Bruce, you are reminding me of the dumbest thing I ever did with guns with that one. As I've probably said before on here, I bought my Husqvarna 8000 ('06) with the Vari-X 2 2-7 in '76 for a whopping $225. A few years later, I was able to get a newer version of the same gun, now called the Carl Gustaf, in perfect condition, with a vari-x 2 in 3-9, in 25/06. Best shooting gun I've ever had. If I didn't mess something up, or shoot too fast for the sporter weight barrel, that thing would shoot under 1/2" with any decent load from 75-120 gr. bullets. So of course, I eventually sold it.:rolleyes: Can't say I'd really have used it much. Not many places to blast groundhogs with a 25/06 around here anymore, and I've yet to take a trip west for pronghorns/mulies. Oh well.:(

    Was talking to Brian via email, and touched on the subject of a get together. Not sure where would be a central location, but it sure would be fun.:D

    Happy and prosperous New Year to all.:D

    Yep, I hear ya. Back in 70's four of us kept a running ground hog competition for a couple of years, one year I won the First one of the Season by taking one off a snowbank in march :D. Managed to tag two Caribou in the Hudson Bay area back in 04 and that's about the last I used the .25 cal. Yep she worked good on caribou, they went down like they were hit with lightening :). I used Nosler Partition 120 Grain Bullet quite often in it or Sierra 117 BT-HP.
