    I've made shelters, hammocks tarps, etc. out of surplus parachutes. Cut to size, hem the edges and a couple cans of camp dry to make it shed the rain.

    I have shot a couple of these not the tactical though and they seem to be decent for the price. A little rough around the edges but accurate enough to hit tin cans on demand. Weird safety too.

    The 165/168 grain bullets seem to be the sweet spot for the .308. I load for several rifles and only the Savage M99 gets 150gr cup and core bullets. Last year I went to a Nosler Accubond 165 on top...
