    The Husqvarna is an attention getter, but the matt finish and heavier type contour barrel on the 700BDL is nice. Stold some of the spotlight.

    I just started brewing up some Trailboss loads for the 308 last night.  Not sure they will be considered “light” loads since I am using the Berry’s plated 220 Grain slugs...

    Nope, I am plenty fast without one. I can load almost as fast. A rapid string is 10 shots in 70 seconds prone from standing. I was one of the first guys who shot a Krag at Perry. I had a audience.  Load 5 standing, have a pile of 3 and a pile of 2. Targets go up, drop to prone, fire five, open the gate, fling 3 in, drop one, drop one, slam the gate, fire 5.

    There were chargers made for the Krag, but they were bulky like the first one you show, and clipped over the rear of the port. Just not a real good design. They were used against the Spanish, the Philippines, and a few went along to WW1.

    Fun fact, Sgt Schultz in Hogans Hero's is armed with a Krag, and that is period correct. The Nazis took Norwegian Krags and gave them to their prison guards. However they were shortened for the use of the Germans https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=9&v=HPpNMfLabaw&feature=emb_logo


    Thank you, interesting bit of gun history.

    Ruger Frontier (Precursor to the GSR) in .308 and topped with a Leopoldo 2.5x Scout scope.  This is one of my favorite “walking around” rifles
    I have the exact same rifle and scope combo and love it!

    I've got more .30 calibers than anything else. I've got a .30-30 Winchester Model 94 AE, I've got a Model 700 SPS in .30-06, I've got a Model 721 in .30-06 and a .300 WBY, and not to mention a 1917 Enfield, a Remington 03-A3. and two Garands. I used to have a Savage Model 340 in .30-30 that got lost or stolen, not sure. I did used to have a couple of .308s. lost both in two different divorces. But I prefer the .30-06 to about anything.

    My next largest amount of the same caliber is 7mm of which I have 3. a 7 Mag, a .280, and a 7x57. Then I have two .25s.

    The .270 Win. is by math a true 7mm (.277in - 7.0 mm) but you new that, eh?

    Ain't it time you repainted that container?
    All it takes is a bit of paint and small ex-large Louisville Ladder.

    Actually, it's a 6.8. But if you want to round it off, ok call it a 7 lite. Then you could say I have 4.

    Anyway, I've got 8 .30s, 9 if you count the 7.62x54R Russian Mosin Nagant.
