Last I knew this is 'Merica. Because I can. But like Picher I have a hard time resisting a Bargain. I bought a Walmart 700 in 243 with the idea that the grandkids could use it. I got a Youth Stock, a plastic DBM, and put a Leupold VX 2 I got on sale on it. I shoots sub MOA. Besides I had a couple old boxes of 243 to use up.
