    I agree with you but also will never condemn one for wanting a large capacity magazine. Furthermore I'll never condemn anyone for any difference of opinion whether it be religion, political views or any other reason. Where I do draw a strong line is when someone attempts to force their views on me and limiting my freedoms. It's probably safe to say the vast majority of the members here if not all feel very similar to their freedoms being whittled away.

    My opinion the reason for the 2A is two fold. To have a large group of citizens that could be called upon to defend the country and to install checks and balances to prevent a tyrannical government such as the one the founders were at that time were trying to distance themselves. I also believe the first and second Ammendment go hand in hand.

    Before this all started an AR carbine could be found for $399. and lowers for $39. Brownells had a retro with 20" 1/12 twist barrell, green furniture and no forward assist for $900. I wish I'd bought one but took my pennies and bought my wife her own TRX300FW.
  5. I put some junk Amazon synthetic on my 2,000# HF and so far so good. It seldom get pulled out more than a few feet but those first few feet get worked very hard with the front bucket and snow plow. The biggest advantage for me is that it isn't breaking strands like the steel does. On the FE loader bucket the line goes through a 2" pulley at the bucket and that's where the steel fails. Another advantage is the lack of memory in the synthetic. Get a steel cable wedged between wraps and it looks like a road kill snake.

    My local Rural King doesn't jack up the prices....or so they say. It's hard to prove since their shelves are always empty.🤨 My biggest concern is 22 birdshot. Carpenter Bee season is upon us and I never got to place my pre season order of 200 rounds. I'm pretty sure there's about a hundred rds here but living in a log home it's a life or death situation 😳😉 Sometimes I resort to a bee swatter.

    Did you send that crap north? We are supposed to get storms tonight. If I catch a whiff of jambalaya I'm puttin' the blame squarely on you.😉

    I had the same problem with the Mk XXII and also wish I had kept it. Built up a 1022 but was never impressed with the accuracy so it went bye bye. Dummy me thought all 22lr ammo was created equal. What's really bad is I had been reloading CF for years and understood how much better a pet load was to get the best from a rifle.

    Oh trust me. It had to have been multiple things like the camera angle, planet alignment and burning incense to make that itty bitty Crappie look anywhere near big. I think maybe 7-8 inches max.

    It's official. Crappies are biting in Ohio. Water temps were 56*F at 10:30 am and got up to 60 on the surface after the sun came out. Nothing aggressive or large but the old blue and white tube tail caught 4 Crappie and one each Bluegill and Largemouth. It was good to get out.

    As a generalization yes, that is true. If a bullet transitions from a velocity over the speed of sound to one below the speed of sound instability occurs. A centerfire round does the same thing. That's why rounds like the 224 Valkyrie came out. It would go a longer distance before entering the transonic speed. I have found CCI Mini Mags to shoot very well at 50 yards. They stay supersonic at that range. I've never been confident enough to put my chronogragh out that far to see what the velocity is at that distance but on one lot out of one rifle I got over 1,400 FPS at the muzzle.

    I think the $34.95 / brick for junk stuff is the new norm for a while. It's hard to find it even at that price nowadays. My last purchases were June 2020 and got a 500rd box of Remington Thunderbolts for 20 bucks and February found 555? rd boxes of Blazer for 17 bucks. Neither one of them are good for anything more than beercan at 50yd accuracy. Prior to all this madness Target Sports was selling 5,000 rds of CCI Standard Velocity for $235 delivered. Since my last bunch of CCI SV sold for 20 bucks a brick and I still had about 2k left, dummy me didn't get another case.

    Hasn't loosened up here either. I did start reloading again. The neighbor was complaining about missing out on some 223 so I dropped off two boxes of 50. Last night dropped off a box of 22-250 and this morning he walloped two dirt pigs at 200yds.
