#6: Re: Did I say I love my wife?? Author: Donut Slayer, Location: Pensacola, FloridaPosted: Fri Dec 07, 2012 8:19 pm ---- I wanted a walnut stock, but there wasnt one to be found within 100 miles. There was one in 270, but I have 4 ,270 rifles and I really wanted another 30'06 like I had years ago. I setted for the synthetic version. I still love it. Waiting on new brass, and scope bases. (I gave all my '06 brass to a friend 6 months ago). Still have a surplus of assorted 30 cal bullets from sierra, remington, to barnes TTSX's. So let the load developement begin. Here is a generic pic. www.browning.com/produ...35&tid=201

You have a very caring wife mate as she obviously cares enough about you to get you such a magnificent gift.

Are there any more like het at home ???
For your 270 WSM if you are still working on that load try 71 gr. of Retumbo behind a Nosler 140gr. Accubond. That came from I believe Shooting Times magazine and is the pet load for my buddy in his Winchester and a few others I have seen posted on other shooting forums. Shoots under an inch at 200 yds. at near 3200 fps consistantly.
#11: Re: Did I say I love my wife?? Author: radar, Location: North Island New ZealandPosted: Mon Dec 10, 2012 7:52 pm ---- I can now officially go one better:
My truck is stuffed. 20 years old; a Mitsubishi L200 Sports 4x4, the engine needs about $1000 worth of work and the body is starting to rust, it's been a good truck but it was time to get out while the going was good. The boss said if I replaced it she would have to be able to buy it ....she hates my truck with a vengeance, hates driving it, paying out for it in fact everything about it except me.
Well I test drove about 5 vehicles yesterday, bought one home last night so she could have a drive and low and behold I now own a Suzuki Grand Vitara also in 4x4 configuration.
I can't beleive it, 2011 model 4700km on the clock on the lot for 33K I got it for 25500 and got a $3500 trade in on the beast!
Must be Christmas or something cause that was right out left field. Best of all The Boss approved all money etc without complaint!
P.S. I love my wife too!
P.P.S We just celebrated 23 years - actually that 2.3 life sentences here LOL.
