You didn't change the stock to one of those aluminum chassis? If and when I get one I want it bone stock. Can't see buying a rifle and spending near the same amount on replacing the factory stock. I...

Ruger American Predator in 6.5 Grendel?

I know the caliber is a bit large for here but I actually was more interested in the rifle. I shoot that round in an AR and since I'm old a decrepit I hate to have to hunt for the brass so I'd like...

That something that I didn't even think about. I guess it's best I stay in the .22 range or switch over to one of my old single shot rifles. I know that the 5.7X28 has fair velocity out of a rifle...

The funny side of the brass is I can get tons of the 5.7X28 cases since it looks like a lot of people don't want to reload it. I really like the 17 VHA and I also have a 17 fireball but don't really...

20 caliber version of the 17 VHA?

I was wondering if anybody had done a 20 caliber version of the 17 VHA or just necked up the 4.6X30 Cartridge or the 5.7X28 cartridge? I've had less luck with the 5.7X28 brass I've bought on line...

My problem is the humidity here and the receiver looked nice as buffed metal so I coated it with that urethane. It's not worth anything but it was given to me by my son-in-law who got it from his...

Know what you mean. I was given an old H&R single shot that was rusted pretty bad. It was easy to clean the single barrel down, and re-blue but the receiver was to much since I was told that if I...

This is a picture of the 17 Reed express on the left with a 22 Reed express on the right. I'm not sure but I don't think it would lend itself well to a Martini type action since it is rimless. The 17...

I will confess that back when the 17 Aguila ammo was easy to find and cheap I used a 17Mach2 reamer for a 17 Aguila chamber by running the mach2 in short. I checked several times as I ran in the...

I may have to check into it since I'm thinking about a liner. I got a 17HMR reamer from Manson years ago that said on it for Redman linner. That rifle shoots really good. Building up a nice Mossberg...

I thought about using those liners they have on "Track of the Wolf" but I haven't really checked into them enough to know what size piloted drill to use and I didn't see where they had 17...

I don't have the heart to take my 10/22 in 17 Mach2 apart and swap out the barrel to the 17 Aguila I found in my parts box. One of the members reminded me that the 17 Aguila can be shot in the 17...

17 Aguila -- anybody still shoot this ammo?

I was looking through some old ammo and found a brick and a half of this ammo. I figured if I made a little shooter for it the ammo would probably last me half of forever. If it didn't shoot well I...
