Welll... this morning I used our "camo wrapped" M14 to do some "yoga stretches" with. (not bolt action but I thought you'd laugh) Strapped it onto my back...and stretched out that spine. The weight works well for my stretching. NO LIES!!! lol!!!!! My HusB thinks I am nuts... I am!
Yesterday marked the arrival of the last package I was in need of to complete my latest tinkering: a loaner rifle for unarmed huntin' buddies or new shooters. (For the longest time my loaner rifle has been a beautiful Rem. 700 CDL in .30-06, and its time for it to rest safely at home)
So here is the Savage Axis 7mm-08 in stainless. I wanted it to withstand the weather, or the neglect of a friend, so she's wearing entirely stainless or nickel-plated parts. I also ditched the factory trigger for a Timney, and the stock for a Boyd's laminate. The Leupold fixed power 6x36mm should arrive before Turkey Day. I'm really looking forward to sparing my nicer rifles from the wet winter we've got ahead.
Not exactly,I knew there were different kinds but I've never really looked to see what all was out there because I've never done 1, and this was easily available and cheap. Figured it would get me by for now.

Went to range today to try a couple of rifles I'd worked on this weekend. One was a pawnshop buy .243 Howa 1500 I'd made a stock for.....had made a change to shape of comb on butt stock to center my eye better in scope. My modification to cheek rest was satisfactory.
Have a Marlin XL7 heavy varmit barrel 308 that I'd removed about 2" of barrel from and recrowned. Did some more crown work on it yesterday. Took rifle to range to shoot.....to check the powder pattern around the crown and see what kind of groups rifle would shoot. Groups were decent, but am dissatisfied with the powder pattern from todays shooting..... a little more crown work needed.
