Once you taste a real mag,the P-mags get very funny,very fast. Especially in BR.
Cain't speak to the Gay Tiger,as I've never been there,but have been on both sides more than a few times. I'd rather BR than Kreedmire,mainly because I've multiples of each. Have much love for 270 and Seex Grendel too. The 18" 270 Montucky with 105's is EVERYONE'S Favorite and I savvy the nudge. Rather nice blend of performance,to platform,that's just funner than fuck.
.224" 88's grant a .545BC and of course a velocity advantage along with that better aero form,in a like case capacity with 105/08's. So they are flatter and drift less,while carrying greater impact velocity to victims. Recoil is less too,no matter the case capacity in extrapolation. None of it huge,but it all adds up.
As Beer Cans go,there's less than .020 BC difference betwixt the .224" 90 and the .243" 110. I'm happy to squirt 88/90's,but of course shoot it all.
As 6mm's go,I shoot the 18" 270 Montucky more than anything. In .224" I'm happy with 223,223AI,22 PPC Fucking Improved,22 BR and would just as soon leap to Speedmire from there,but gun quite a few more chamberings in the diameter. Tough to beat a 21" 223/223AI and AICS DBM AM steel 5rd mags with 88 Smooches,for Utility. You can't push 'em fast enough to get in a pickle at any distance and they are Dirty Dastardly Fucks,well beyond what anyone would begin to believe.
this guy had never shot a rifle past 100 yards before this shot. absolute killer with the struggle stick.
6x in sportsmatch rings
450ish yards in my honey hole
considering it's my rifle i could always use that setup, but i've always hankered after a soft shooting sub 6lb rifle. no brainer would be 22br, but considering regs and common sense a small jump to 6mm cleans up some nonsense in one fell swoop.
i wasn't a fan of velocity i got from 4350 and 108's in the 243 fieldcraft. a lot of powder for very modest increase over 6br.
man we had a riot with the grandkids last night. plethora of platforms but heavy on the 22lr. glad it got stocked deep and cheap when the sun was shining during the trump years. that ruger wrangler is a lot for a little as a plinker, 317 now that i got it fixed is beyond a hoot but the nordic 22lr upper with a romeo 5 as usual makes 7 year old look like hatchcock.
been pleased with the larue 2 stage flat face trigger. last time i counted this example has about 8k rounds through it. mostly on the nordic.
i shot my 317 cylinder loose at about the 10-12k mark. got her fixed and she's not perfect on DA with all ammo but damn close enough.
can't get my mind wrapped if i want to 22 or 6br the newest montucky. a guy gets spoiled with what 223 do to on the pad and on critters. got a good pile of loaded lapua 105gr scenar. can't decide if i'd actually trust a known "hard" bullet down below 2000 fps with a lung shot.
had another big shoot off fest. pics but i think a couple siblings don't want their kids posted on internet. fun to watch kids hit steel further with a 22lr then their dads could hit with the deer rifle.
all the while with cci SV, swfa 6x and a couple 2 minutes of instruction
doesn't suck have 50 nieces and nephews. but damn we been burning through the rounds.
Need to dig through 35mm stuff and find a picture of me standing on a Cod End,with a 150,000#+ Midwater Tow afloat in the piss flat Pacific.
Hadta' slice meshes and bleed victims out of net,as the bag slid up the stern ramp...long before popping The Pucker String. Strange to be concerned with being killed by an avalanche of fish..................(grin)
