    If you want to switch to powerpistol, I'd use published data as a starting point, instead of "Looking at the burn rate charts" and concluding from that "...seems that charges would be VERY close". regarding the "FILTHY UNIQUE", if you don't get...

    You should go ahead and get that 243 Thomas before their good deals expire. When I got my 308 they only had the one synthetic stock and that was the only thing I could fault on the rifle. It's flimsy, so I replaced it with a Boyd's laminated stock...

    Sounds like it was setup as a prairie dog gun. Depending on??? Prairie dog shootin can burn up a lot of ammo. As to the rifling, does it look to have sharp lands and grooves? or do they look smoothed out.
