    The boss has an early MVP in 5.56. He's only used it for shooting critters, and even under that light use, the plastic piece in the magwell has had to be replaced.

    I've not found good reports on...

    I have an AR in .300BLK. It's basically a box fed .30-30; good within its range, but that range is limited.

    The boss oneupped us.

    He got a hog with a Winchester 94 in .38-55 purchased by his family in Canada back in 1907.

    Chuck Whitlock,

    I handled a Ranch Compact in .350 Legend today and liked the feel. The shop had 10 boxes of 140gr (or 145) flat pointed bullets at $12 per box. The rifle was marked $449.

    I bought two .45 GAPs. All was well until the GSP went away from it and so did my ammo source. The Ranch Compact would be ideal, and I like the idea of the .350 Legend, but I want to wait to see if...

    Down the Practical Hole

    Yes, I looked at that rifle, but the stock is .75 too long; it's .308, and the barrel is longer than 16".

    I also looked at the Ruger Ranch Compact in .350 Legend, but the scarcity of the round...

    That rifle is already threaded from the factory, which means Ruger incorporates that into the process with an associated cost. My taking it and having it cut and threaded is basically paying twice...

    Does anyone here have firsthand experience with 783 Heavy Barrel? They are...
