    What a dilemma. Choices, choices, choices. We have a .308, a 6.5 Swedish, a .270 and a 30.06.

    I guess that since we are constructing a weapon that will defend the Halls of Valhalla, the 6.5 Swede will be the way to go.

    If you ever get to see these guys in concert you shall not be disappointed. I have taken my son to one concert and my nephew to another. History takes on a whole new meaning when taught through Swedish Metal!

    There aren't enough of the WOTW to purge the world as it is today. Smoke another doby and it will be all right.
    3 oz of Bourbon works too!
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.

    A 120 grain 6.5mm bullet fired out of a Garand at 2800 fps will produce a free recoil energy of about 11 foot pounds. A 150 grain bullet fired from a Garand will produce a free recoil energy of about 18 foot pounds.

    This skull crushing beast is only to get better. You can bet your last Loonie on that. Everything is coming together and in a different way this time around.

    Are we not supposed to pick a caliber that would be readily available? Not much of a chance of picking up some *dropped 6.5 Swede

    Cant find any decent 30.06 Garand food either. Where does one find those cases of Federal .308 now as well. My evil brother from another mother has a recipe for making brass. The components are just as difficult to hunt down as well.

    This tool will follow the snipers creed, "One Shot, One Kill".
