    Guys... don’t make me moderate this.


    Anyway- add 6.5 Creedmoor to my list

    I wish I could have added 7x57 to my list but it wasn't to be. I lost my lease and I'm also not finished with fitting the stock to the barreled action. I'm just a few clicks away from finishing it, but I'm kinda burnt out on it and with no pressing need right now it's hard to get reinspired.

    Seriously. My penis is small. It is so small that I can justify owning any big bore or safari grade cartridge I want.

    He's being serious. I've seen it. No Not on purpose, it was an accident. He turned around before zipping. But I digress.
    It's tiny. Like so small I couldn't make fun of it small. I felt bad for him.
    In my defense..... you may have misinterpreted my previous post:) I will go stand in the corner now.

    I've had a 6mm Remington which I loved but now I have my very own .243 Winchester. I think I'm gonna love it too. I put a VX-3i 3.5-10X40 scope on it. It's a lowly Remington 700 ADL Sythetic from Academy. I just love the way it feels and will try like hell and bloody it this next year so I can add .243 to my list. My ex already bloodied it but I want it bloodied in my name.
