    FS; Christensen Arms 6.5 x.284 w/Scope

    I saved up and sold some stuff to buy a Ridgeline and love it. Great rifle that I hope to pass on to my son someday. I love the Trigger Tech trigger and the barrel. I had to add an adjustable cheek rest to put me up just a little higher so my eye was level with the scope but other than that it shoots extremely well right out of the box.

    Dented brass, still good?

    Thanks guys
  4. This might be a stupid question but last time I was at the range I went to chamber a round and didn’t notice it wasn’t seated quite right in the magazine. When I pushed the bolt forward the round jumped up and was pinched between the bolt and the ejection port, making a very small dent. Just wanted to make sure it’s still okay to shoot before I tried to send it down the barrel. I haven’t checked to see if it seats in the chamber yet but I can’t imagine it wouldn’t from such a small ding. Just below the shoulder toward the right side in the pic. Thanks!

    New 6.5 PRC

    As for reloading, I plan to pick up a single stage press in the next few months to get started on working up some of my own loads for the 6.5 as well as a few calibers. I've been buying the individual pieces for a reloading setup over the last couple months so it's not a large one time expense and I can also get the exact individual components I want (scale, hand primer, media tumbler, etc). It might take awhile to offset the cost of buying new ammo everytime but I think I'll enjoy it so to me there's added value in that. Good luck.

    New 6.5 PRC

    I ran into a similar problem when I got mine a few months ago. I actually called Hornady to see what was up with them getting more supply pumped out and they said they're running it right now and hope to have it on shelves in the next few months, which is better than nothing. In the meantime you can pick up some ELDX online at Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore, Midway, and SWFA.

    Cartridge of the Week: .243 Winchester

    When I was 11 and about to start hunting my dad sold his pump action 30-06 (yes, pump action 30-06) and put the money toward a pair of Model 70s, one in the same caliber for him and the other in .243 to serve as my first deer rifle. Now they are both in my safe down here in Arizona and aside from a heavier trigger pull than I prefer - which is easily fixable - the .243 is still one of my favorite guns to shoot and the gun I took my first deer with. The next time I find myself back in Wisconsin for a rifle hunt that will be the gun I have with me.

    For a few years I had a credit card that I never used so I made it my licenses and tag applications card. That way I never have to worry about what my account balance is in the event I draw a tag. It never comes out of the safe except for application time.

    I double checked my expiration date out of paranoia anyway lol

    Just got the email like most of you probably did too that cards need to be updated by Thursday the 27th. Good luck everyone!

    On X?

    I'm a big fan of the phone app. Seems like they update pretty frequently with new features too. The ability to save map sections for use later when you're outside of cell service is really useful.

    What’s everyone hoping for...

    Late December whitetail tag.
  13. Absolutely. You need to be a member or a guest of a member to actually go inside so I would be happy to put you in touch with the guys there (I live in Vail now) so they can meet up with you. I believe the 4th of July event is open to the public and they will be selling up until the drawing if tickets are left.
  14. Hello all, The Benson AZ Veterans of Foreign Wars is putting on a firearm raffle to raise money for the post and also to help recover from a devastating fire that destroyed much of the VFW hall a couple years ago. They have some really nice guns being raffled off and being a very small VFW the post appreciates anyone who takes part. The drawing will be held at the Benson VFW on July 4th but you do not need to be present to win. If drawn you will be contacted. Please consider helping out and giving yourself the chance to win a nice firearm! If interested PM me with your contact info or any questions. For each gun a ticket will be pulled out of the hopper and the winner announced. The list of firearms is: Kimber Ultra Carry .45 ACP Browning 1911-22 Kimber Micro Carry .380 Colt Woodsman .22 Draco Micro 7.62 Diana Model 34 .177 Auto Ordinance M-1 Carbine (pictured on the top of the poster, purchased in 1955 by a Navy vet, fired less than 20 rounds and donated to the VFW for raffle) Drake Over/Under 12 gauge American Tactical AR-15 with Leupold scope Mossberg Shockwave 20 gauge Mossberg Shockwave 12 gauge with brace Henry Military Appreciation .22LR Henry Big Boy .44 Magnum Henry AR 7 .22LR Survival Rifle with Survival Pack CZ 75 SP-01 Phantom 9mm CZ Scorpion EVO 3-S2 Pistol Micro with brace CA P-09 Urban Grey (suppressor ready) Smith & Wesson 60 Pro .357 3" Barrel Smith & Wesson 686 2C .357 6" Barrel Heritage .22LR Revolver
