1. Hey All! Lately there has been more and more scammers on the forum board. They register and replies to members requests for guns and/or parts or other things. The reply contains a gmail or hotmail address or similar ”anonymous” email addresses which they want you to reply to. DO NOT ANSWER ANY STRANGE MESSAGES! They often state something like this: ”Hello! Saw your post about purchasing a stock for a Safari. KnuckleheadBob has one. Email him at: [email protected]” If you receive any strange messages: Check the status of whoever message you. If they have no posts and signed up the same day or very recently, stay away. Same goes for other members they might refer to. Check them too and if they are long standing members, PM them and ask if the message is legit. Most likely it’s not. Then use the report function in each message or post so I can kick them out! Beware of anything that might seem fishy! And again, for all of you who registered your personal name as username, please contact me so I can change it to a more anonymous username. You’d be surprised of how much one can find out about a person from just a username on a forum such ad our! All the best! And be safe! Jim

    I know 55 grain and under basically. What grain and what brand have you guys had the best luck with in general? I see some fiocchi 50 grain max, federal 53gr vmax, Remington 45 grain, fiocchi 40gr vmax , and Hornady 35 grain vmax. Any ideas on any of these?

    I hand load my ammo so I can't help you with factory ammo but I can say that my 1 in 12 twist Vixens will shoot up to 70 gr bullets well. I shoot more 60-65 gr bullets than I do lighter bullets in them.

    My 223 shoots a ragged hole with 40 grain Hornady’s. It’s a varmint A1 series.

    No one can predict how any ammo is going to perform in your rifle. Buy some, shoot it, & see! There are no short cuts. Besides it's more fun!

    My (1 in 10" rifling) vixen likes sako factory ammo. 3.2gram fmj and 3.6gram gamehead. Lapua fmj is superbly accurate but it is expensive. Norma goes all over the target.
