I drank the SiCo coolaid as well. Hybrid and octane 9. Between those two, my Omega and my Specwar 7.62, I should be covered..... I'll form one a rimfire can one day, so unless I decide I need a stand alone 5.56 can.... which is possible but unlikely, I think I'm good on cans for a bit.

I got the hybrid already. This go around was an Omega 45 k and another hybrid for the trust. I'll keep my original for myself and this one can be passed around by the others. Omega is going on my 300blk or AR9
Thinking about a rimfire as well rabbits off the stand.

Larue ultimate upper kit fde 300 blk. Ordered Wednesday shipped today. Now I have to wait on their lower, which may take months to get.
Have a pulsar apex purchased from outdoor legacy that will go on the rifle. Ordered a dead air sandman. Went with 16Ē barrel so I only have to wait on the can for the 6-9 months.

Not today, but I bought a 1885 low wall and a weatherby ultralite in 25-06 from a friend in need. Sold the low wall on here. Kept the weatherby as I had been wanting it for years.

Colt Army Special from 1912 in 32-20 with 4" barrel and in SA/DA.

It has been refinished but who cares. Paid $274 shipped.

Only bad thing ammo is pricey (about $1 a round).

Cannot wait to shoot it this week.

Will give a range report.

Not a complete gun yet, but I'm almost there on a rifle I've been working on for a while. Waiting on the recoil lug and reamer from PTG. Hoping to complete it before rifle season comes around.

Remington 700 LA Mag bolt face, RMEF Edition (basically an sps with camo stock and laser engraved floor plate), not knob built and installed by me.
Trued by yours truly with advice from Stick1.
Bartlien 5R barrel in a 3b contour, 7mm with an 8.7" twist. Will finish out at 23-24 inches threaded 5/8-24, chambered in 7mm Rem Mag.
Trigger Tech Special trigger..... man it's nice.
And the McMillan Game Hunter with Edge fill arrived this morning......I think the box weighs as much as the stock.

That gun has some gorgeous wood, I've got a 725 Field 12g with 32in barrels that I absolutely love but the wood isn't near as pretty as yours. Enjoy it and have fun dusting clays and making feathers fly.
