I have one with a sr# of 65 and several with only three numbers. They started the numbering over and over so it is not impossible to see one with low numbers. The lowest I have seen is 13. Be careful they are habitforming!!

Default I think I may have been ...

Misquoted? "It is the 7mm Remington mag that nearly shot a deer in half that
I mentioned, but, at close range I nearly "blew a deers head off" as it tried to
gore me after it was unaware that I had shot it thru it's left shoulder, lung &
heart with a .308! The Mosin is nearly identical to a .308 win, but like most
rifle cartridges, they are not meant for close shots! My first deer/(muledeer)
was shot @ 100 yards with a flat nosed .170 gr bullet from a .30/30! That
was 30 years ago & I have learned a LOT since then! (I have soo much deer
meat in my freezer still, that I have passed on a deer tag for the past 2
seasons and our beagles are now helping us to eat this "surplus of meat"!

You took the words right outta' my mouth.
Not my choice, but if it's all you can afford it's better than a stick in the eye.

Default Hey, on the other hand...

If you are looking for the most "cost-effective" means of "slowing-down the
hoarde", a .22lr repeating rifle would "fill the bill"! In an "end of days"
situation, all you need to do is shoot the hoarde in a kneecap or 2 to slow
them down enough to make your getaway in your "mad max car"!
