was down behind the house this evening trying to do summin with my 7mag had the .308 out just to play
i have a set of swinging targets i mad at work out of 5/8" carbon steel
i was shooting the 7mag an decided to put the last one in the swinging target
(a lil pissed cuz i couldn't get it staightened out )
anywho pulled the trigger went st8 thru never slowed up
thought hmmmm to my self throwed one in the .308 pulled

but just thought it was interesting

I sure wished we lived close enough for me to look your rifle over that is giving so much trouble.

I saw a You- Tube video where a guy was shooting a 50 cal bolt gun and shooting at steel, got a ricochet that almost took his head off. All caught on video, that was crazy, it had audio and you could hear the bullet after the shot coming back.

put it in its old stock cut away evey thing that was touching the barrel till i reached the hip of the barrel bore sighted it
with the scope off my .270 still only two turns to rock bottom
sighted it in scope was bottomed out to the point i was afraid i was gonne ruin another one so i quit
the gun is 26.5 inches from the lug to the end of the barrel
so with threads it would be bout 28
thinking i'll have it cut off to 24 an see if that helps
douglas says to cut 1an1/2" inches off all barrels
i had him leave the barrel the length that it came from the factory this may very well be my problem
