    Meh. There is not really a good reason to put up with extra recoil for just bench work. Go with the .223. If if just have to have more umph get the .308. There are more options and parts on a short action rifle.

    I've been meaning to ask you how things are going with your MVP? I'm pretty happy with mine and I barely got it done and sighted for the SE shoot. I dropped a Timney trigger into it and I'm glad I did but I changed my mind about swapping the mag well. The plastic factory one seems to be fine so far. I did find that it liked 62gr bullets better than 55gr but I haven't tried 75gr bullets yet. The only issue I have with it is that it made shooting at 100yds boring.:tooth:

    I agree with the guy from Oklahoma. Ick. Can't believe I said that.


    Can't argue with either of you. What you say makes sense, which is why I'll probably do the opposite. Only have a few months left to buy the ammo if I go with anything other than 223. As my momma always says, It's time to sheet or get off the pot.

    I like it a lot. I did the Timney trigger and the Tromix mag well and trigger guard. I have gotten better accuracy with 55gr bullets so far, but I have only tried one 62gr hunting bullet. I did try 69gr SMK and those shot great, 75gr AMAX in Hornady TAP did pretty good too.
    I haven't been on the trigger enough this year to really wring out more loads. The gun itself is great, the varmit stock fits me nicely and rides the bags well.

    My first bench gun was a LR308. Great rifle, easy to shoot. Not what I would recommend for a first bench rifle. My first bolt gun meant for bench work was a 6.5x284, because I am a slow learner.
    I eventually got the Mossberg MVP Varmit in .223 and a Savage MKII. The 6.5, .223 and .22LR all have similar stocks, triggers and scopes. All are fed from detachable box magazines.
    I have a full set of rifles that can shoot from 10 yards to way out yonder. Unfortunately the only one I can claim to be able to use to its limits is the .22LR. Even then, better men can make me look foolish, easily.

    Don't so much care for the taste of Grand Marnier.

    But there's no accounting for my taste, I'm thinking I want a .270

    What?!?!?!?! I can't talk to you for at least 2 hours. You are so wrong on both counts... you could substitute Cointreau if Grand Marnier is an issue but what are we? 18 year olds on spring break? :cuss:

    I had that attitude for many years and almost had a stroke when my buddy uncorked a bottle of 20 year old rum to make me a Mojito. When I protested he asked me, "Why? Did they stop making it?". He was 100% right. What are we saving the good stuff for? :tooth:

    Women!

    I need to draw a plot plan to apply for a permit to install this generator. That means I need to measure things outside. So I go out with 25 foot tape measure in hand, and my wife to "assist". Talk about ADD - the heat index today is 116, and she's re-arranging the patio furniture and wanting to know about the succulents that died, and all I want to do is get the damn measurements and get back inside!

    Actually, she was a big help, even measuring short sections by herself while I was jotting down the previously taken longer measurements. But keeping her focused...

    Years ago I was paid by the hour one day to travel to various houses collecting patio furniture cushions for winter storage. During that time in my life it was a miracle of gravy train work from heaven. The person paying and instructing me was a very wealthy woman.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Best buy that bolt action in .223 or .308 soon. California has about regulated the AR out of existence. Those fancy 'military grade bolt action rifles' with telescopic sights and military chambering are bound to come up on the California legislature's radar pretty soon.

    You mean sniper rifles? Oh yeah, every bit as evil as ARs and will be their next target.

    The VTT feature on my phone is on one hand AMAZING at what it picks up. On the other hand it misses some simple words. Same with autocorrect.

    Short woods trip, brought the kid and the beagle. Beagle boy stayed on the leash, kid is afraid he will run off. His hunting days are limited to the fenced in backyard. Oh well.
    My 4x8 wooden stand is mostly sound. Mostly. Not sure what to do with it. Moving it would SUCK. If it gets moved I'll have to throw another sheet of plywood on top, as it's a bit squishy. My uncle moved one of his stands, not sure WHAT in the hell he was thinking. It always produced, but, it was too close to the trail where the deer cross. They were on you before you knew it. Or they came down the hill and were at eye level with you. Moving it 50 yards east and SLIGHTLY uphill would have opened up a LOT of shooting lanes, made it easy to see the deer before you could get a shot, and concealed your position better. But....he moved it WAY up hill, effectively screwing the hunter out of a lot of shots, and making it very hard to see deer.

    Been considering some new sights for my new pellet gun. Haven't done bad with open sights. Prefer a scope, but have kind of enjoyed sights. But, the fiber optic ones have GOT to go. They are fine for pop can sized targets, squirrel heads not so much. I actually blacked them out with a sharpie because they were distracting. And they are plastic. Bleh. One good snag and they are toast. Williams makes a peep sight that fits 11mm dovetails, I may go that way. Then just make a new front sight. It's got a God awful plastic barrel band type arrangement, I can replicate that out of steel or aluminum easily enough, just need a finer front sight. I've got a Williams sight off my handi rifle, I may look at seeing what it would take to mount that.
    Or, just get a scope. A scope with Mil dots would allow me to shoot stupid distance. 25 yards is about max with open sights. Sure that's about as far as I'd shoot a limb chicken, but it's fun to rainbow pellets in at 100 yards. Did that the other day with my CO2 gun, and it was a hoot.

    Well, that was Charlie Juliet. Dance class canceled, but not until I was halfway there - we have a key to the studio, but the entire *building* was locked. A flurry of texts ensued. That's OK, I needed to take the car out for Diesel fuel anyway...

    As of today, I have now traveled the entire length of the Natchez Trace. We took a short vacation through the MS Delta to Natchez. Today we came.back up the Trace to just North of Jackson. I've already been from Jackson to Nashville.

    While traveling through the delta we passed.within 2 miles of the plantation where the famous Teddy Roosevelt teddy bear hunt took place just after the turn of the century.
