Re: any gun gurues or hunters and plinkers out there
Ouch. One of those fun calibres though. Friend of mine had a .17/223 he handloaded. Round came out of the tube at something like 4500-5000 fps.[img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] We shot a squirrel once, didn't even realize we hit it until we found a foot. That was it. A foot.
I like to stay with commonly available calibres. .45 ACP, .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum, .45 Long Colt, .308 Winchester/7.62mm NATO, .30-06, 7.62x39mm Russian, etc. There is a lot to be said for the handloads and wildcat derived rounds though.[img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
I put a new stock on my AK-47 last week. Looks good.[img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img][img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
