I went on a shopping spree on Fri. I bought a Ruger .357 revolver and a Bushmaster AR15 in .223 cal. That was an expensive BUT fun day. I bought the .357 to carry on me bowhunting and to keep in the nightstand at home and I am really not sure why I bought the AR15. Oh yeah, the election. Dull

Anyone else bought anything lately? Lets hear what, why, ect!!!!! Smile

Tikka t3 stainless in .270. Grandpa's old 308 served me well for years, but it was time to try something new and more reliable.

I bought my 11yr old son a Franchi Affinity youth 20ga couple weeks ago. The 11-87 he was using ended up in the shop for a couple weeks. He enjoys shooting sporting clays, so i ended up buying the Affinity. First round-35 Second round-37

Claybirds, GREAT barrel ME and TE readings! The CMP M1's are the best deal going...especially when you can get one like yours.

Marinerman, I ended up with a service grade M1.

The receiver is a 1943 Springfield, it was re-barreled in 1954 with a Springfield barrel, I took it all apart and found that it also has a Springfield bolt, trigger assembly, hammer, op rod, and it has new CMP wood on it.

It has been a hoot to shoot, and looking to reload for it.

Didn't buy one, just got one back that was loaned to a couple of LEO's for a few months. S&W M&P 40c. They were looking for an off duty CC. They liked it way better than the Glock. Nice to try before you buy.

Claybird, What did you end up with? I picked up a HRA last year and if it wasn't unissued it was close. NO wear on any internal surface and an original barrel that gauged new. I don't shoot with an adjustable plug. I either shoot CMP HXP surplus ammo (good deal) or I reload a real nice mild load. If you reload be careful of your powder choice. It doesn't matter as much as the velocity of your load as where the pressure spike occurres in your barrel.

Just picked up a CMP M1 Garand.

Now looking for items to start reloading for it.

Anyone have experience with the adjustable gas plug that they sell so you can shoot normal 30-06 ammo?

Wieland, could be posted to a different thread but tell me I read it wrong. You're NOT intending at shooting Elk at 900-1000 yds with a 270 WSM or any other rifle for that matter.

Similar ballistics on paper but with much better bullets that penetrate and expand in the deer. This would be a close range gun only and basically a toy.

ditto, I always liked you but why would you want to hunt deer with something like that ? May as well use a model 1911 for the same ballistics.
