Oh, you're gonna love the 6GT
I really liked the ballistics of the 7mm RemMag, but didn't want to deal with a belted cartridge. Picked up a 280 instead and might AI it if I need a little bit extra.
Cheaper, easier to source brass, less powder, almost the same ballistics.
It does make me think of ham! But I think of ham for lots of reasons. Or no reason at all . Need a wildcatter to neck that down ever so slightly- the 7.5mm Ham'nSwiss.
I like diet coke, or did before it was woke-a-cola, but still don't like the 308. It's a perfectly good cartridge, but I just don't care and don't have a good reason. I've never owned one either. That is kind of funny because I do own a 300 Savage, which is a 308 with a short neck.
You just gave two reasons for not liking a cartridge in a thread entitled "for no real reason".
I am okay with the 6mm creed.
And probably never will.
That is a heck of a nice rant for no good reason. Well done!
Frankly, anything French. Guns, cars, anything.
Yes, you are!
Oh come on! A fun little cartridge in a fun little gun with a ton of history behind it. What's not to like?
Nothing wrong with that, functionally its a fine round, as are most of the ones in this thread.
Im not much of a lever gun guy, and one bad experience with the 32 special was all it took to make me dislike it.
You are strange, but that isn't the reason why. I like both cartridges.
Too close together. Can't hardly tell them apart without reading the head stamp.
2) .204 Ruger
3) 5 mm. RRM
Easy now. I’m gonna get my feelings hurt and have to start hurling insensitive, hurtful comments in your direction.
I have been personally attacked. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go outside and crank my 2500 HD and let it run til I get up at 4:00. Gotta make sure them glow plugs are good and hot, so I can get to my heated shooting house before daylight and pick these Mississippi deer off at 800 yards on the power line.
308 Win. Meh.
9mm Parabellum. Yawn.
6.5 CM - nope. disqualified. I have reasons for that one.
The problem is that 6.8spc was around for such a short time that I actually have no reason to dislike it. I have legitimate reasons (mostly) for my other dislikes. And don't worry, I have a thick skin!
......the 30 Carbine
