    Going from 30-06 to 308?

    I didn’t even read it all. However, All the explanation wasn’t needed. I summarized you’d cone back with that angle. Once again, you can safely summerize that my beliefs on the scientific theory matters not a lot to me. Meaning, I’ll take what I see and describe in a manner that common...

    Going from 30-06 to 308?

    I think your consideration is spot on after being there and done it. I’ve got guns that are incredibly beautiful and function perfectly. And, While I much prefer the 700’s I have over any A bolt, it’s because they are all customized to fit my desires. LOP, stocks, bedding blocks, action...

    Going from 30-06 to 308?

    You ever shot a factory loaded 20” barreled ‘06 and .308? I’m not being a wise guy but, I’ll answer it for you. No you haven’t. Your opinion and explanation says so. Call it what you want. I call it muzzle blast because it looks like a flame thrower coming out of a 20” barreled 30/06...

    Going from 30-06 to 308?

    It’s not going to be the popular choice here. But, something you need to consider. I’m a gun guy. A gun nut so to speak. So, I’m not a frugal guy that found a compromise. I was completely ready to drop thousands of dollars on my latest rifle purchase. A true custom rig for myself. I...

    How much hunting does your wife let you get by with?

    I’m saying this from a position that my wife and family understand. It goes like this. God, family, country, and myself. That’s my priorities in order of importance. If I follow that direction, everything has its place and allotted time. No need to tweek it. It does the perfect job of ensuring...

    Kinetic wood splitter vs USA made hydraulic

    Yes. Often they are loaded by a tractor that loads onto the chain. It’s is fed into a trough that feeds it to a cross cut. Tgg he e chunk you cut falls into to 4-8 wedge splitter. It gets split and belt fed into a truck fed, wagon, trailer, etc…. One of those bad boys.

    Going from 30-06 to 308?

    Maybe my point was confusing. I totally know and understand that. My point was sawing off an ‘06 barrel versus buying a compact 308 was something he’d likely regret. And, at 18 inches, he’s going go like the temperament of the 308 much better.

    Going from 30-06 to 308?

    If you cut that barrel on the ‘06, start researching a load that has a fast powder. Traditional ‘06 loads out of 22” barrels are loaded with slow burning powders. Creating a lot of waste in energy in even a 22” barrel. Be ready for a severe muzzle flash in a 20” barreled version. You can...

    6.5 creed vs 30-06

    Put a 190-200 grain bullet in an ‘06, hand load it, and the 6.5 doesn’t crush it.

    6.5 creed vs 30-06

    ‘06. Every. Single. Time. Far more versatile. If the question was a 260 everyone would say ‘06. It’s just the latest and greatest gets people suggesting the 6.5 creedmore. I love the carrridge. Just not the gun the ‘06 is.

    Concrete Question

    Wetting concrete can weaken psi in the early stages before setting. However, it won’t harm it as it starts to take a decent set. And, on large pours, needed in order to get a smooth finish if it’s hot and in direct sun and or wind. As you are fighting the clock. As stated, cracking is what...
