    The only statement that is correct is that it is the internet. The 6.5 Creedmoor is the brain child of the partnership by Hornady Senior Ballistics Scientist, Dave Emary and Dennis DeMille, the VP of product development for Creedmoor Sports for NRA...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 6.5 Creedmore - NOT in Factory Rifles
    Running the long bullets in the .260 for magazine feeding requires the bullet be seated in the donut area of the neck. This creates issues since most competitors don't want to inside neck ream. They much prefer to outside neck turn. The 6.5...

    Well, it seems that many of you have came up with the same ideas that I had plus several other ideas. None of which I can say, yes, that must be it... Whatever it is, it doesn't bother me or scare me. I just wish that I could ID something. As I've...

    Yes it will feed the very long bullets used by the long range competitors out of a 308 length mag. With the .260 using the same long bullets the mag runs out of space.

    LOL, it's not me. The only time I catch these lights or whatever they are is when we are gone from home several days.

    Yup, Thought about the wind chime about 6 months ago. Tried to make it reflect light, tried to make it duplicate with lights off and camera on, no luck.

    This is what that end of the patio looks like looking from the opposite direction. Tell me how a light gets to all the places on my deck, ceiling, and wall.

    I live on a lake. But there is no way a light could reflect down on my deck. It's not regular anymore since I moved back home. These only occurred when the wife and I were away at our place in Houston.

    Well, one died in the house but I doubt it is him. No dust, no mist, the camera is mounted well out of the weather. Plant pollen, I doubt to form a perfect circle like that. The images were recorded of a period of at least 8 months. As I said...

    There are a few spider webs being picked up, pesky spiders. Are you watching the full video? Sometimes the light or whatever it is doesn't come up until closer to the end. It's not a bug or bugs either. I have four cameras outside and I have plenty...
