New acquisition this past week. 7.5” BFR in 460. Topped it with a Trijicon RMR Type 2 1MOA. This one’s headed west with me this fall. Finished a good load work-up today. 265 grain A-frame pushed by 110 at a measured velocity of 2109 FPS. Happy Sunday everyone!

Nothing special but got a Ruger EC9S. Pretty nice gun for the price. Does it count as buying it if it was free from cash back rewards?

This will arrive sometime this week. Going to replace the 10.5" 300 ACC upper on my spikes lower. Got a buddy making me some cast subsonic rounds.
I think it'll make a fine thumper

Thank you. There are 9 more AR platform rifles that I didn't take pics of and a few more pistols. I think it was 49 weapons in total. Basically it just doubled my son's inheritance.

Default What gun did you buy today?

I’ve had a couple of good side jobs lately, so I splurged

First was a 686 Deluxe. I’ve wanted one since my brother bought his, love shooting that thing.




Another great job led me to a 5200, Remington 5R




Now saving up for rings, base and optic.

Not today, but I picked up a custom barreled Tikka T3X in 6.5x284 with a VX-5HD 3-15 scope, dies, lapua brass, 200 bullets, everything you could need for it. Guy found out he's got a little one on the way and needed to liquidate some assets, so I got a smoking deal. Just needs a new stock.
