A year or so ago I came upon a Remington Light varmint job in a 221 Fireball. In the end it turned out that that gun had been owned by a tinkerer who had it so screwed up that I was glad to part ways with it. I didn't figure I'd go that route again (famous last words). However I came across another just like the other only unscrewed with. I got the gun a set of RCBS dies and some loaded ammo all for $400. How could I say no to that?
Not knowing who loaded the ammo, I pulled the bullets and started over. I put a Leupold 3x9 on it and went to the range today! It looks to me like I ortsta be able to shoot a nut out of a squirrels mouth out to 100. Usually if you hit the nut the squirrel dies from the shrapnel. I used to do that sort of thing with my dads 222 when I was a kid onliest difference is now I got a 222 short.....I'm still a kid....just an old one!
Tommorrow morning I'll be in the big woods before the sun comes up......I'll let you know how it goes!
