    Rimfire Guys!!

    Now need a can for it!!! Went with Romeo 5 for a sight bc most of our hunts are at night with relatively close shots that happen quickly!

    Those Tikka T1X look sweet! And impossible to find for .17HMR. LGS here is doing a sale where they pay the sales tax so I'm leaning towards the synthetic Ruger American Rimfire- not the precision but they have a pre-threaded, heavy barrel .17HMR for a shade over $300!

    The Anschutz and Cooper are out of the budget- Looking for $400ish rifle, threaded and ready to spend all night in a side by side bouncing around the ranch! Ruger American and CZ are looking good. Will CZ thread if you order direct?

    Yep....again....

    Probably get to 3000+ with those 127LRX. Haven't shot them in my 6.5 yet but I ran the 7mm 145 LRX... and they were AWESOME!

    Yep....again....

    -85fps for 6" change in barrel length, not bad!

    The boys from Crooked Wing absolutely smash birds out around Lubbock!! A few buddies of mine from Midland have hunted with them. They are probably some of the best specialists at the Sandhill Crane game too! If you come further east then I think North Texas Outfitters does well too!

    Do any of the CZ models come pre-threaded?

    Rimfire Guys!!

    Found a great new hobby here in Texas-- Predators... have access to some spots with lots of coons, skunks, badgers and foxes. Took the .223 and 12ga last time and it was a bit overkill. Didn't see many coyotes and we are primarily hunting at night with red lights. So- I'm thinking a .17hmr might be the ticket, and suppressed might also be the way to go. Looking at: Ruger American Rimfire Target (grey laminate, threaded barrel) Savage A17 Target Sporter (laminate, semi-auto, NOT threaded....yet)-- ALSO- has anyone run this model with a suppressor, I've never run a suppressed rimfire so I'm not sure of gas issues. Tikka T1x MTR -- if I can find one Which models have I left out that might be a good fit? Thoughts on optics for nighttime hunting under a redlight?? A thermal is on the dream list but Im thinking something light and small for fast acquisition, even maybe a mini red dot?

    Lance- Another work of art!! Great looking rig. I think it is getting to be project time (well after Turkey season) and I have a 300wm that will be going on a diet!

    What factory ammo is he shooting?? 120gr?

    6.5-300

    Even getting the barrel broken in and a load developed after that I would probably expend 10-15 rounds through that rifle on an annual basis. Doubt I would come close to burning it up. I do my off season practice with a .223 and .308!

    Do you anticipate any issues with magazine length and seating depth for the 160s? How any 1-8 and stability with the 160s?
