Add me to the list, I need tires too. More importantly though, I need the money for tires.

I'm good with tires but I do have some tax return earmarked for a bolt action setup. I'm pretty excited to finally buy one.

Sorry its all pics, but should be manageable to read the review. HIGHLY recommended. They're available in like 50 colors/patterns, and prices are $50 shipped. A little more for some patterns/designs. This forum sucks on what it allows for image size, sorry!

What are you looking at? It's always cool to watch what someone puts together.

For the bolt action, I've been looking at the Savage 10P at Grabagun. Seems like a good deal at $550 for the features it has. Also looking at the Howa 1500 with heavy barrel and Nikko Stirling Targetmaster 4-16, both 20" in 308. Any thoughts? Budget is an issue. For a bit extra the Savage with a SWFA fixed 10x might be better long term I would have thought.

The savage 10's are an awesome bargain for what you get. Adjustable trigger, accustock, etc.

Some people make noise about the 5R rifling. Is it a factor in accuracy?

I transported a bunch of guns this weekend with a ton of ammo. They went to Az and then came back to Nv. No shooting was involved. Kinda forgot...

With 5 R rifling the lands are radiused. One of the benefits is it will reduce copper fouling and reduce drag. It is also said that it will not cut into the jacketing of the bullet as much as button rifling and it will help maintain its BC and reduce deformation. That part I don't know how true it is. I do know my buddies Remington 700 5R .308 shoots bug hole 5 shot groups. It did this straight from the box with factory match ammo. Both he and I were able to shoot under half inch 5 shot groups.

Anyone heard of or had any issues storing firearms in foam filled cases in Vegas? I recently read foam is not good for firearms because it attracts moisture.. I had never heard of this before and wondered why my firearms OEM cases were foam filled if this is truly a problem.

I would recommend using and maintaining desiccant bags inside your firearms cases to help reduce moisture. That, with regular cleaning an a good lube, you should be fine.
Desiccant bags can be placed in the oven at low heat for 30 minutes or so to "refresh" them.
