  1. Thanks! As you can see I posted without reading through the thread haha. I’m gonna hopefully take some time this evening and start from the beginning to read. My only thought was to go a little higher than that but I assume the timbers are far cheaper than trying to build it out of larger treated boards. This looks nice as well. I plan to place these within a soon to be pea graveled area on the side of the house so weed eating should be minimal.
  2. I’m looking to dive into a small garden using raised beds. I’ve tried a larger garden in the past and never enjoyed keeping it weeded, watered etc. Any tips on the best design or size for raised bed/s. Basically looking to do tomatoes, okra, squash and zucchini.
  3. I guess it shouldn’t amaze me how “brave” these guys are now but it still does. My home is off the beaten path so I believe my chances of this happening are slim but still lingers in my mind for that same reason.
  4. Hmm that is odd. I ran a box of them through a single shot 45-70 once but didn’t really see that they were worth the price at the time. I got a nice buck on camera so hopefully I’ll be able to try out the core-lokt on him this evening.
  5. Interested in the sale price whenever you come up with it.
  6. I wish my parents had done it for me haha. $200 is a STEAL.
  7. I may just save up a bit and get a nice FFP. I like shooting handguns and AR’s competitively so I’m sure that bug will make its way to bolt guns.
  8. Anyone bought a lifetime license recently? I’m going to buy my son one and am contemplating one for myself. Seems like at 33 it would be worth it if I hunt for at least another 12 years. I am just wondering if it’s a fairly easy process or if the state makes you jump through hoops.
  9. Just curious what you folks prefer in a scope for mostly hunting with the occasional range day out to 600 yards or so. I’ve been looking at scopes below $500 and seems like you can get better glass in second focal plane for the money. I also don’t know if I will actually use the tactical turrets and all that jazz vs Kentucky windage. 308 caliber and am considering a 1” tube as well vs a 30mm for weight savings. Ive been eyeballing the new Leupold VX- Freedom line which is supposed to be the replacement for the VX-2.
  10. I put a Skinner aperture sight on my Marlin 336 a while back. I went with the dovetail replacement version rather that the receiver mounted model. I find out after installing it that the front sight was now way too short and I was shooting about 8-10” high at 50 yards. After ordering their replacement front sight I am loving the rifle even more than unused to. This setup is waaayyy better than the stock buckhorn sight setup. I was shooting around a 1.5” group at 50 yards word of my range bag. I did notice that this older model (1970’s) doesn’t have a perfectly flat reciever on the top. The dovetail and front sight aren’t on exactly the same straight line looking down the barrel from the hammer. Doesn’t effect the accuracy, just looks a little different. Anyone else noticed this in the older 336’s?
  11. When the wife kind of gives you freedom to buy what you want it’s difficult to decide.
  12. That has crossed my mind as well. I’ve always had my heart on a nice .308 and have yet to get one..... The Remington SPS 16.5” sure would look good with a suppressor hanging on it.
  13. Wow. That changes things. Not sure how they manage that voodoo but that would solve the problem and give lots of versatility. And they claim the you don’t have to re zero. You have any experience with the ammo?
  14. Hmmm. I had not. What’s the biggest differences? I’ve shot one before and thought it was very tame honestly.
  15. Looking at the Winchester Super Grades. I think I’d be afraid to take that in the woods! It’s beautiful. I went to to look at a few earlier and couldn’t find many wood stocks. Guess the market for them isn’t there any longer. I may be ordering this one sight unseen. Right now I’m pretty much going back and forth between the Rem 700 and the Winchester 70. Probably not a super grade but the featherweight.
