The CJ that's in the driveway. The money I made off it help fund my forever debt issues known as the Jeep CJ-7. My next rifle will be a Tikka T3 Tactical.

Hey Dave- Here's some fishing pics.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

I envy you Coiz. Alaska is beautiful in the summer. Hope you have a great trip and good luck fishing. Post some pics when you return.

I really enjoyed saltwater when I lived in Houston...it is really hard to get skunked fishing saltwater!

Mike, that sounds like a hellava trip, good luck and take lots of pictures!

I know you are a 308 fan and so am I, but I am playing with the 308's baby brother now...kinda hard to ignore the Remington 260, 120-140gr bullets with .550-.650 BC when compared to the 308's 168-175gr bullets with .460-.505 BC and additional recoil. The recoil of the 308 was never a problem but I have been shooting a 300WSM and 208's the recently and the difference is significant. I look forward to ringing this baby out over the next few months and it will be the go to rifle for 99% of all my shooting and hunting for the long term.






Found a sweet spot for two different bullets

Another good round based on the .308 case is the 7mm-08. I had a friend that had one in a Ruger 77 and racked up an excellent one shot kill ratio on axis deer here. He was an excellent shot. That always makes a difference. He passed away in 1999 and his family gave me the rifle.

Wow, that is a nice gift and very thoughtful of his family!

The 260 almost died but made a comeback in the last decade, although I don't think we will ever find more 260 ammo on the shelf than the 7-08. I had two myself, one Rem 7 and one 70 Featherweight back in the late 90's. The 7 was a major pain in the rear but I finally found one load it preferred, 150gr Ballistic Tips. I had one 243 in the early 90's so that leaves the 358 and newer 338 Federal to try but I probably will never get around to it.

Some NRA high power rifle competitors use the .260 and like the high BC of the 6.5mm bullets. Makes for good velocity retention at long ranges.

Just spotted this thread. The CJ is going to be my hunting/fishing rig. The 4 door Wrangler I can sleep inside without setting up a tent...which is slick. Sometimes I pull a little 5X8 enclosed with gear. We drew out on Black Powder Deer this year, but also put in for antlerless Elk..hoping to put some meat in the freezer....

I wish they would build a 39A Carbine again, but I don't expect a lot from Remlin/Marlington. Nice wood on both and the 30-30 has no shame

I replaced the barrel on an old rifle, it had me worried shooting 1.5"-3" as I was working up loads, once the pressure approached max the groups tightened up nice.

I had been looking for a Marlin 39A Mountie with 20" barrel for a long time. They were discontinued several years ago. I went to a gun show on a trip to Vegas about 4 years ago and stumbled across a well used 39A Mountie that was still in very good mechanical shape. I had Ed Lapour in Bremerton WA reblue it and he did a fabulous job. Bluing quality is much better than factory without being over polished. While Ed had all the metalwork, I worked on the stock refinishing it with Minwax satin poly varnish followed with a hand rubbing with turtle wax polishing compound. It's a great shooter too. Made in 1956.
