    Card go hit!

    Another "Butt Munch"! You guys really need to stop this. JSYK, there is a well-kept secret here in Arizona. You "cry wolf" guys on the draw and credit card "hits" actually get "black-balled" for between 3 to 5 years for being so childish. Nobody wants you afield with a loaded, high-powered rifle or sharp broadheads as you may hurt someone other than yourself! Sincerely, 280REM

    THEFT, yes THEFT!

    Hi: I have had some reservation in regard to posting this, but now feel compelled to do so. My son and I have been setting trail cam(s) for about 18 months now. We started with one, then purchased a second shortly thereafter. Mind you ALL have been set on PRIVATE PROPERTY! Six weeks ago I purchased an additional pair of them online. So we then had a total of four. Drove to check on the cams yesterday. We soon discovered that TWO had been stolen from the same waterhole! We are in complete SHOCK! Thirty years ago I needed to worry about "LOWLIFE" stealing tree stands, now trail cameras! I do guess that we had indeed been lucky, but these setups were NOT on public lands. What type of mindset do these THIEVES possess to think and act as if they are entitled to someone else's property??? Well, we lost about $300 in hard earned cameras, a bracket, two SD cards and 16 rechargeable AA batteries. To the LOSER(S) that stole our two, trail cameras: It is my sincere hope and prayer that something an order of magnitude(x 10) more devastating befalls you in short order. You do deserve this in fair payment for such a cowardly and lowly act. Boldly, 280REM
  14. Yes! I have been through Hunter Safety four times! Once in 1973, when I was 14. Again in 1991 when the State of Arizona first offered up an additional bonus point in the big game draw. With my stepson Ian and finally with my son Patrick who is now 16. Learned something new each time! Cheers, 280REM

    6.5 x 284 - thoughts?

    Hi All; I purchased a "used" Savage Model 116 about a year ago. Backordered 100, 6.5-284 NORMA Lapua cases from Midway when you could get them for $107/100. Fought to find bullets, Nosler and Berger. Currently have "decent" loads developed for the 120 grain Nosler BT and 129 grain Nosler AB LR. 120 grain Nosler BT load is with Varget. Tried Reloder 19 & 22 and mostly H4831SC. Just tried the Berger 140 grain Hunting VLD. Best accuracy is at 0.002" off of the lands. Remember, if you develop a load with the Bergers you need to conduct the "sweet spot" test by loading groups of rounds at: touching the lands 0.040" off of the lands 0.080" off of the lands and... 0.120" off of the lands This recipe was shared with me by Walt Berger himself when I met him a couple of years back at Ben Avery Range. Sounds crazy, but one of those settings will yield a group much tighter than the other three. Starting powder charge is called "modest" by Mr. Litz. He defines that as any powder charge BELOW published MAXIMUM. After you determine the "sweet spot" you can then change the powder charge by 0.5 grain up or down to squeeze out the best accuracy/precision of your rig. I just found and purchased a 100 pack of 142 grain Nosler AB LRs @ Sportman's Warehouse here in Tucson. They are next up on the list for trials once I rectify a Redding die problem. Best of luck! 280REM

    WH4C: I fully understand. I justified the NORMA based upon a pile of 6.5 mm bullets in the garage and a smokin' deal on a VER LIGHTLY USED Savage Model 116 in a gun rack in a gun store in Tucson. That model is left-handed and no longer in the Savage catalog. 100 Lapua cases are on backorder(BO) with Midway @ $107 and bullets on BO with ER Brown. Current price for the brass is $127/100! Three of my Coues hunting buddies are shooting the same chambering and running the 140 grain Berger VLD. I plan to try the Nosler Accubond LR @ 129 grains with H4831SC. So far, I only have the primers and powder for my handload development. Patience is indeed a virtue! 280REM

    Hi: Truly a rifle system to be proud of. I do have a question. Why chambered in 6.5 Creedmore and not 6.5 x .284 NORMA? THX, 280REM
