    Well, it has been a busy day of fun and new things.

    Had a friend who made a shot using his toe to pull the trigger, and was challenged to do the same.
    With long toes and shoe size of 14 I thought maybe I could do it. I practiced dry-firing on the living room floor this morning.
    My wife walked in and wondered what in the world I was doing.:uhm:
    So here is the video clip for your viewing enjoyment.

    I had ordered a 22/45 Ruger with threaded barrel, pic rail on top and below the barrel, that really got my attention as I have a Thunder Beast 22lr can, and thought it would be a great platform.
    It came in today, and so out to Mac's Gunworks to get the paper work done and give it a run through.
    I was extremely pleased with the accuracy with a variety of ammo tried, trigger was better than I expected, and the can made things quiet with sub-sonic, high velocity and even hyper velocity rounds.
    I am very pleased with the whole package. The Burris sight was also great and easy to adjust.

    I also did more load development with the 338AX (338 Lapua Improved) but the first Gen 300 grain Berger's did not perform well:tissue:
    Gen 2 is out now and I will try them in the future
    I will use the 300 grain SMK's for elk this year. Not trying to get in a bullet debate but I have enough friends who have great success with the 338 300 grain SMK on elk, that I will use it without hesitation with the potential impact velocities I have with the AX.
    But Derrick did film me shooting it off-hand:

    Hmmm. I'm wary about clicking that link.

    Just a link that took you to an old death certificate, with cause listed as.

    "self inflicted gunshot wound"

    That was my grandfather.

    I sometimes have a grim sense of humor.
