    I haven't made it past the 300 Blackout so far although the Grendel has entered my mind but no research yet. I'm still on the fence about the whole thing and the farther I go the more I'm considering just dropping the idea altogether.

    Probably will get a 6.5 Grendel before the year is out.

    Also, I want tho get a single action revolver in 44 magnum or a 45 Colt/45ACP convertible.

    My short list of possible nexts... Handguns, .38 Super, 10 mm, or .454 Casull. For rifles... I’ve been thinking about a big bore A.R., I just don’t know which. And I’ve always wanted aa .257 Wearherby.

    If a rifle, probably a .308 Winchester. I don't currently own any rifles chambered for anything larger than .223 Remington and when I asked the THR rifle forum about getting a rifle in something larger a couple of years ago, the consensus was for something in the 7mm or 7.62mm class and the arguments in favor of the .308 seemed pretty compelling.

    If a pistol, .380. I've already got lightweight .335 bullets and powders suitable for loading .380, so all I would need would be some brass and a set of dies - easy entry into a new cartridge.

    Ask again and I'll bet the dominant recommendation will be something in 6.5/.264. The 6.5 Creedmoor seems to have largely displaced the .308 as the preferred intermediate cartridge.

    My old rifle making buddy/bp club member has one too. He shoots it in matches all the time.

    Mine is a fowler and even without a rear sight surprisingly accurate with roundballs. I can usually keep them inside a 6" target at 50yds.
    Got a turkey with it 3 seasons back and a doe that same year. Fun stuff. :thumbup:

    Rifle is a CZ 'trainer' 22
    Shotgun is a Ceasar Guirini 12 ga

    On Tuesday 11-13 I brought home a nice Winchester M-70 in 7mm Rem Mag for a price I just couldn’t pass up ($280.00). I didn’t have a 7 mm anything... with a .270, 6.5x55 and an unused .300 Weatherby already I don’t really need a 7 mm anything... but I just couldn’t say no to it.

    Now I need some ammo to shoot...and then dies and bullets to reload for it... and I’ll be all set :thumbup:.

    Stay safe!

    I pretty well have the pistol calibers covered but there is a big void in rifle calibers between 30 and 45. So maybe something in the 338-350-400/416 range. I just don't really have a need for those which is probably why I don't have them. A 338 Lapua is calling out to me but the need............its just not there!

    Well...a .338 Lapua would be awesome. However, since I am limited in funds, range distance, and skill, it's more likely that a 6.5 Creedmor or a classic .30-06 will find its way into my safe.

    If you find a 3.5" without rust for under $1500, buy some lottery tickets. I jest...but only a little. Those 3.5" are relatively rare and highly sought after.

    Sweet! What rifle?

    I've been looking at 404 Jeffery and .416 Rigby. Not ready to pull the trigger on either but thinking about it. The .416 is probably in the lead.

    Hmmm pistol, maybe one of the super small pocket pistols, like a .25 acp. Though i read about a single six hunter in 17hmr that sounded awful fun, too.

    Rifle... probably an oddball ar, such as 277 wlv or 358 yeti.... or a classic brush busting levergun, like a 35 remington.

    7.62x51 and I'd rebarrel a Garand to fire it in.

    I'm pretty well covered for handgun calibers: .22LR, .22WMR, 9mm, .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .40 S&W, .45 ACP
    Current long gun calibers: .22LR, .22WMR, .223 REM, 9mm, .38 Special, .357 Magnum
    If I was going to add a caliber to this list, it would probably be 7.62x39 that would feed a new CZ 527 in that caliber (already own the .223 REM version).

    Noit at all!!!:)

    A .45-120 with Swiss Black Powder using paper-patched soft lead bullets would be a great addition to any stable.:thumbup:

    That works extremely well. I have two of them. A regular and a match grade.

    One caveat. BE SURE to get the aluminum spacer that fits the front of the magazine from Brownell's. Otherwise, you will likely have feeding problems. It just drops in when field stripped, so no hassle installing.

    I’m seeing mangled ones for $1000. Seems I missed the boat by about 10 years on getting one at a good price. Here’s the best condition I’ve seen lately. My highest bid was half the final price...
