[email protected], plus a couple of Stealth Cam trail cameras. Should be here tomorrow.
I saw my first one, in 6.5 Creed last week at the range. I had no idea they made them for .22lr. The guy I talked to had a $15k custom rifle, and was a reloader as well. He said they actually work well. I may use one to close the gap between my 1:7 and 1:9 twist barrels. I found a pretty good happy medium load for both, but something like this could maybe get them much closer?
Please post your experience with this tuner.
I saw it 20 minutes after it was posted and didn't hesitate a second. It should be here next week. The package deal included 5 DS-10 speed loaders and a loading try. I really don't need the speed loaders, I already have 16 of them that I've been fortunate enough to get most from friends that won them at matches but didn't have a gun for them.
I like to load them all up before a match along with two plastic boxes that hold 140 rounds each. I don't like to waste time and I can be ready for the next stage much faster than the auto guys.
Went on a little gun shop tour today.
Stopped at four different shops here in southcentral Pennsylvania.
I had put a handgun on layaway a couple or three weeks ago at one shop, so my first stop was to pay it off and pick it up. For the curious among us, it is a three screw BlackHawk in .357Magnum with a 4-5/8" barrel. Looks to have been fired very little with a barely noticeable turn line on the cylinder and it locks up tight with a very small cylinder to barrel gap. It has not been converted and it will not be converted while I am the owner. Now for the bad...it has a very ugly set of after market grips on it but that is easily fixed. The best part of the deal...it was on consignment for $375US.
I also was able to get a pound of Blue Dot at the same shop for $32.95 and one hundred CCI small pistol magnum primers for $10. Daily limit at that shop for both items.
I also got a thousand CCI small pistol primers at another shop for $80. They had several other bricks but were limiting to one brick per day per customer. Long time clerk at that shop advised me that $80/thousand is probably going to be the new reality going forward if and when they get any primer deliveries.
Nobody else had any primers or powders that I need. Still...pretty good day even if the cost of primers and powder remains high.
Amazon grips for the highway patrolman
Going to set it at 125 yards on the .22 LR Range.
It's 8.5"X13", so head shots will be fun.
@Targa, those grips look great! A few years ago I converted my SBH to a Bisley (fairly expensive and a good learning experience) because I found the stock grips uncomfortable. Didn't think of looking for a set of extended grips.
