  1. Absolutely! If i'd have received it from an online purchase, pout-lip would have been redefined, fer sure. It's just i had been waiting so long for the .308 and got pumped quick then the shine got knocked off instantly. Yeah, the others out there are probly not hangups. Honestly, that's the whole purpose of speaking up... check out the weapon before dropping the cash on the table.
  2. For a few days now, my lower lip been quiverin like a kid whose ice cream fell off the cone. Now that a tear is forming, i figured it best to ventilate to those who can understand. Ain't no pity party at the house. The story begins with a trip to the range then a boondoggle around middle TN countryside. Found that we was real close to Outpost Armory's new store soooo, why not. Went to check it out. WHOA!!!! A 2020 Waypoint in .308 even. I have been looking for one of these in stock for two years now and here it is. Yahoo, right? Not so fast... Asked for help and the fella was on it answering questions. The feel of this masterpiece was spot on what i expected. Looking over the shelves trying not to let wifey know i was in buying mode. Umph, too late, she saw my glazed over look already. Next, that magical enlightenment was wiped off my face when i opened the bolt. WTH?!? It stuck! Unbelievably, the bolt was not like the fine piece of engineering smoothness i had envisioned. After repeated attempts to finaggle the bolt to and fro, there was most definitely a zone of no-go. No eazing or sliding. Had to hold vertical and jiggle it to open. Handed the rifle back to the guy helping me and with a heavy snatch it opened first time. I don't run my rifles like that. What a turn off to see such a rifle having to be man yanked to function. Going into battery position was no diffrent. For the kind of money they be asking, a guy should not have to get out the rubbing compound to slick up the action. Needless to say, i done got the pout lip real bad. Any of you ever come across an issue like this one? It's like they gobbed extra Cerakote in there or something. Input on a Tikka T3X A1 welcome.... I'm off the Waypoint. Smoky

  8. So THAT'S the reason i'm tinkering with carbon fiber stuff. I knew there had to be a reason. Smoky MY FAVORITE M1A/M14 TWEAKS AND TIPS CARBON FIBER STOCK FROM BULA DEFENSE
  9. The promo code CYBER25 just worked for me... $72 OFF! Thanks for the heads up! I been looking at the Miami Classic for years. Smoky MY FAVORITE M14 TWEAKS AND TIPS
  10. Totally agree with that. I had a Kahles on an SSG back in the 80's and that sucker went thru some rough times and never lost zero. It took a 3-wheeler fall with me and developed a fog inside. Called up the distributor at the time and they swapped it out for new one. Diffrent reticle but brand new. Nothing but good things about the brand from me. Smoky MY FAVORITE M14 TWEAKS AND TIPS
  11. Totally agree on 350 Legend availability. Not a lot of users... yet! It is catching on though. Folks are starting to realize the 30-30 power in an AR. Biggest hangup i had in the beginning was the mags. Went Duramag after that and found they work flawlessly. Yeah, technically, not a "big-bore" BUT it's bigger than a .223 with way more umph.

  12. I'm partial to the .458 only because of pure coincidence. Was available, i tried it and still enjoy shooting the big thumper. Without doubt, it will cure your magnum fix. My first one came from a Wilson bundle that i built up and it was a good package. They usually have ammo in stock also. Here's a link for the 250 grainers. My bud runs a 450 Bush and i'm not sure he enjoys it as much as i do my 458. Guess it's a personality thing. If you are a glutton for punishment, 40 rounds of either will have you chanting nicely.
