Yesterday it was minus 32C with a 30K wind and now today the temp right now is minus 2C but the wind has picked and we are getting some freezing rain.

    7mm-08 and the new 150 AccuBond

    Scotty, I guess that might be the wrong term as they fragmented the first time it was a left front shoulder on a average whitetail buck the entire shoulder was destroyed and the bullet did not enter the body cavity.

    RADD- Rifle Addiction Deficit Disorder

    Well I started to get a grip on this disease and actually placed 2 rifles and a number of different components up for sale. I had a number of so called sales but each one fell through.

    That’s a wrap.

    Sorry to hear of your loss, it is never easy losing a close friend they never ask for much but give unconditional love. I often wish more people acted like our K-nine family. I pray that your retirement is long, healthy and full of adventure on your terms (y)!! Blessings, Dan

Does anyone know where I can pick up a Trigger/Safety assembly from either Remington themselves or from Timney as no other companies manufacture them for that particular model. Timney advised me that they are out of...
