Concerning Alf's bullet weight issue, I don't know that 25gr is a great concern once you get into bullet weights above 300gr (ymmv). You can probably overcome the difference with a slight velocity increase (provided accuracy isn't affected).







**Concerning tushes.......
Funny that I had a conversation with a fellow a just few days ago about the word 'tushes' as it related to hogs. Tushes is a word that both my great-grandmother and grandmother used and I heard it many times as long as they lived. I used (and still use) the term as well, even though at times over the years I thought it was just a mispronunciation of something like "tusks" as we southerners can do with words. I looked it up in the dictionary once and discovered tushes is the proper plural form of 'tush' meaning a long pointed tooth, and in particular the canine tooth of a male horse.....and in some Indian elephants a stunted tusk.
The term tush as most use it in reference to the butt is a slang derivative of several other words in other languages like Yiddish and Hebrew for the bottom.

I can honestly say that I didn't know that hog tushes could eat you... :o :o

It's does not happen often, but it is a terrible way to go  :D

My wife makes a fine chicken salad, and I just had a sandwich made with said chicken salad.

A box of Choice Strips followed me home from work Friday night.  I cut one Sunday, and fifteen minutes on the grill gave a perfect, tender, juicy steak.  My last meal ... before surgery, was left over steak and corn on the cob.

As for last/current, I'm munching some crackers to get my stomach back on track and ready for a real meal.

Nothing quite like an angry hog with tushes that would normally be happy just to eat you.

I'd go with the bullet that would do the job.  Cheaper is for buying wine or furniture...or drapes.....

The barrel and bolt arrived.  Yeahh-h-h-h-h.

And Primary Arms had a 75% off flash sale Sunday morning on comps.   I got one for 5/8-24 and one 1/2-28.  $15ea.








Have decided to go with a 9" handguard.  I tend to light full-length, but this will cover the gas block and help keep the weight reasonable.

My quandary right now is bullet weight.  Hogs.  That's what I intend to shoot.  325gr seems so right for this, but 300gr is so much cheaper.

Happy Belated Birthday, ALf.




I just logged in and saw the thread. Internet and cell service was spotty at best at St. George Island SP campground.
