I also shoot a .32 S&W Long. I have a H&R 732. I reload for it and cast my own bullets. I can shoot it for less than $2 per 50 rounds. Even if you bought commercial bullets, you cost would...

your right it does look a little weird, but all you have to do is shoulder it up and it feels great. My shot gun for deer is set up this way too, so I am kind of used to it.

thanks guys, I think I will pass on these. Neat rifles, but I don't need a bunch of headaches either. I'm too busy with my old Remington's (81 and 14, both in .30 Rem) anyway.

Winchester 100 semi auto

Any of you guys got any experience with the Winchester 100 rifle? I know they were only made from the early 60's to early 70's. I've been seeing a lot of them lately and look like a sleek rifle. ...

Wildcats have never done much for me as I trade too often. I've seen other rifles in my local shop that are wildcats and they don't bring much. However, the same rifle I am looking at in 300 wsm is...

Thanks for the reply. I agree that it is a bit much for 200 yd target shooting. That is the max range at my gun club. As for the 25-06, I actually have thought about that because Savage has the...

300 wsm to punch paper

I've been thinking of trading my Savage 12 BTV .223 (thumbhole heavy barrel) that I use to target shooting and getting something with more punch. Not that paper needs more punch, but I want...

I too am a short rifle fan. I 've been looking at a Ruger 77 compact in 308. A 16.5" barrel is pretty handy.

I'm going hog hunting soon and have been looking for rifles. Shot a hog last year with the Armalite AR in 223 and was less than spectacular. 7 shots to put one down. :mad: OK, now,...

Biggest difference between 760 and 7600 is the mutiple locking lugs, I believe 9, on the bolt of the 760 and 4 locking lugs in the 7600. Made from 1952 to 1981. A pretty impressive production run. ...
