    MT Chambers, Whether loaded HOT or loaded DOWN to below .22LR velocity, the 5.56x45 NATO, .222 and/or .223 are better in every way that the Hornet OR the .218 Bee. = As I said, unless you already have a Bee and/or a Hornet (as I have a Hornet), I...

    Harter66, MAYBE I'm NOT the right person to ask as I have both a .22 Hornet & (at least until my Darla "adopted it" & now calls it, "My little carbine",) a Model 7615P Remington pump-rifle in 5.56mm NATO. The Hornet in 2018 can be up-loaded...

    Mr. Sheesh, YEP. = Believe it or not, I know of a couple who bought a huge quantity of diapers in the run-up to a hurricane. Trouble is that they have no kids that are young enough to need diapers. = Their youngest is 13YO. (Turns out that they...

    Petrol & Powder, Fwiw, what I'm looking for right now (as you've doubtless guessed, I'm a collector, as well as a MB driver) is a PRISTINE/one-owner straight-6 mid-80s W126 sedan AND a 500/540/560 SEC in similar condition. In the event that you...

    Love Life, ' While a free citizen is certainly FREE to buy up things that he/she do NOT need (It's their $$$$.), IMO it's STUPID to buy things up "just cause" if you have no need for the items in that quantity. (Yesterday evening I went to our...

    Mr. Sheesh, I regard a "hoarder" as a person who buys things in quantities that they don't need, have no place to store & really cannot afford to buy. = Like buying a pallet of toilet paper to prepare for a rainy week OR buying a case of cans of...

    To All, WISHING that I could find a suitable barrel for .32 S&W & a Aussie cadet (or another small-size) receiver, as I'd LOVE a .32 caliber squirrel rifle for our BIG Fox Squirrels & other small game up to coyotes/foxes/jackrabbits. (I have a...

    Tackleberry41, I have NO idea where you are but around San Antonio/Austin, the old diesel MB 123 sedans are VERY commonly for sale, cheap. (IF you decide that you want one, I'll find you a NICE & rust-free MB 123 sedan/coupe for about 2,000.oo...

    To All, I couldn't resist a .30-30 single-shot, that was probably made by Mossberg (I think in the 1950s.) & sold by OTASCO Stores, for 30.00 at a recent garage sale. - It came with a "no-name" 2.5X scope (other than the OTASCO marking - MAYBE...

    Personally, I like .22 sort HP for busy-tails, as they (out of a long rifle barrel) make little noise & therefore are stealthy. I've taken, on occasion 5-6 Fox Squirrels, while remaining seated under the same pecan tree. yours, tex

    megasupermagnum, I AGREE. = I would NOT risk an antique/heirloom rifle with "hotter than necessary" loads, as you cannot kill a deer deader than dead. In fact, where I hunt most often here in south TX, I would bet that that PBCB at 1200FPS...

    ak_rob, You didn't ask for my advice BUT nonetheless, IF that nice antique rifle was mine I would load it with the REALLY OLD-SCHOOL .32-40WCF "standard factory" 165 grain PBLFN bullet at 1440FPS for ranges to 100M+ OR the "high speed load" 170...

    Petrol & Powder, MY experience too, since about 1980. = I've owned well over a DOZEN 123/126 diesels & had good luck with all. - Otoh, I wouldn't have a 350SD/SDL if it was a gift, however. (Their downfall was RUST from copious salt on the...

    elkins 45, The following comments are an ADDENDA to what Petrol & Powder said above. ANY of the PRE-1988 diesels are FINE & certain other years of the 300D are OK too. (AVOID the post-1988 S-class diesels with the 3.5 liter engine, for...
