    Exactly. The 6.5 Creedmoor was designed specifically to allow the longest match bullets available to be used in a 308 length magazine. It does that superbly. I predict we will see the same with the newly introduced .224 Valkyrie. The .224...

    During various panics their front page would state how long their backlog was before they even processed the order. Never ordered anything during panics.

    Sounds like a win win setup to me. ROI used to be 15-20 years. Not worth it for the ROI. 8 years ROI means 12 to 17 years of pure profit Well worth the investment Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I love going to my post office. Not because it's convenient, not because I can buy stamps and money orders there. I love mine, because the post mistress has bodacious breastial development that is always a treat to see, especially in the summer time.

    When you do that, you push the fouling down to the top of the projectile, leaving a nice place to make a corrosion ring in your barrel.

    The board will not let you start a post in S&S unless at one point in time you had the required # of posts. He is a victim. I will shoot him a PM and ask him to bring his count to 30. He has already posted 1 since this was reported.

    Remington put a lot of 10 twist barrels on the 260's. A 10 twist is too slow for 140's and 9 is marginal. I believe the VLS was a 9 twist but should have been 8 twist.
