My 1982 Remington 700BDL in .300WM

Weren't you going to do some upgrading on said beasty?
Thought about it.
But realistically, I'm likely never to need a 1000+ yard gun. Not for me with my circumstances.
Kit out the M1A for the best 800 meter shooting then score one of the 716 Sigs with an ACOG and call er' done.

Hmm, like you don't "need" a 900hp cummins powered completely anal retentively rebuilt 30 year old dodge either.  Its nice to know that you could, if you wanted to.....

  Romans 1

26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

The truth is not taught today.  The victors earned the right to re-write history.

Truth: The Civil War was not about slavery...in the beginning.  In the beginning it was about diametrically opposed economic objectives.  The North was a budding manufacturing economy and the South was an Agronomy economy.  The North could not export its goods to Europe because they were more expensive and Europe's goods were less expensive when imported here so the North found it hard to compete in a free economy.  The South on the other hand had cheap labor in the form of slaves and had favorable balance of trade with Europe in cotton.

The North implemented import tarrifs on European goods to prop up the North's manufacturing economy (to make European goods artificially more expensive)  England retaliated by placing import tarrifs on Cotton from the South.

What transpired from there was all window dressing.  When the North could not get general populous support for the war, they pivoted to the subject of slavery to win support for the war.

Also truth.  It was the democrats who opposed ending slavery and it was the republicans who wanted to end slavery. 

Weird how the truth gets twisted.....

And that is why we get what we have.  Homosexuals are an abomination to God.  Government should not redefine the institution of God.  If they want to give tax benefits and legal standing in disposition of estates, government could have created a civil union and not rubbed it in the face of 97% of the country by forcing us to call it marriage.

Israel Demands a King

8 And it came about when Samuel was old that he appointed his sons judges over Israel. 2 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judging in Beersheba. 3 His sons, however, did not walk in his ways, but turned aside after dishonest gain and took bribes and perverted justice.

4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah; 5 and they said to him, ?Behold, you have grown old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now appoint a king for us to judge us like all the nations.? 6 But the thing was [a]displeasing in the sight of Samuel when they said, ?Give us a king to judge us.? And Samuel prayed to the Lord. 7 The Lord said to Samuel, ?Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them. 8 Like all the deeds which they have done since the day that I brought them up from Egypt even to this day?in that they have forsaken Me and served other gods?so they are doing to you also. 9 Now then, listen to their voice; however, you shall solemnly warn them and tell them of the [c]procedure of the king who will reign over them.?
Warning concerning a King

10 So Samuel spoke all the words of the Lord to the people who had asked of him a king. 11 He said, ?This will be the [d]procedure of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and place them for himself in his chariots and among his horsemen and they will run before his chariots. 12 He will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and of fifties, and some to [e]do his plowing and to reap his harvest and to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13 He will also take your daughters for perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14 He will take the best of your fields and your vineyards and your olive groves and give them to his servants. 15 He will take a tenth of your seed and of your vineyards and give to his officers and to his servants. 16 He will also take your male servants and your female servants and your best young men and your donkeys and [f]use them for his work. 17 He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his servants. 18 Then you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.?

19 Nevertheless, the people refused to listen to the voice of Samuel, and they said, ?No, but there shall be a king over us, 20 that we also may be like all the nations, that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.? 21 Now after Samuel had heard all the words of the people, he repeated them in the Lord?s hearing. 22 The Lord said to Samuel, ?Listen to their voice and [g]appoint them a king.? So Samuel said to the men of Israel, ?Go every man to his city.?

Wow.  Could almost get a used LBZ dually for that and have just a dedicated rig....

I've seen it before.  Couple of observations. 

Would allow use of the pickup bed
Would allow use of a topper or cap
Would be able to order with provisions for a lifted truck.

More tires
More complex
Adds length of about 6-8 feet  which would put me close to CDL territory since my 42ft 5er plus my CCLB dually about 58 feet,  I believe Texas is 65ft max

Having said that, yes, Texas is a big place.  Nearly 800 miles from East to West.  Sanger is north of the Big D which is about 400 miles from here.  Be happy to test it and provide nice detail evaluation.  I fancy myself quite the expert at putting that moose of a 5er in really tight spots.  Would be curious to see how this impacts manuverability.

Anyone seen an estimate of price?

Mini update. Bought some Dee Zee anchor points. Pretty neat. They go in any of the six oval holes near the stake pockets. The bedcover in my truck was covering the plastic covers.

Needed a razor knife, flat blade screwdriver and 10mm wrench

Here you can see the back where the plate sits and how it rotated 90 degrees to lock in the slot when it's tightened. Note the self adhesive gasket installed.

It comes with a self adhesive gasket to keep water out. Here I use it to trace the cutout since the bed liner makes it a little more difficult to pop the plastic cover off. Cut with razor knife

Drive a screwdriver through the plastic and PPP it out

Nice hole

Get the threads started and insert

Tighten it up

Tex, you're a Texan. You wearing that shirt is like saying " the sun is bright". hahahahha

True,  try wearing the US Border Patrol shirt in OD green to a mexican food restaurant, though.  That got some looks.  I still ate the food they served.

Funny thing: they had our orders backwards and the guy I was with got sick as a dog and he swore they messed with his food because of my shirt.  Turns out his whole family was sick from a picnic earlier, but still it was priceless.

I guess I'll have to buy the confederate flag shirt now....

I made 25 years with mine Tuesday.  Time flies.  Funny thing is that I have always been intolerant of ignorance and bad manners.  She's starting to catch up with me, though.  And the world is full of ignorant ill mannered people.  I told her if her mouth gets her in a fight, she has to take the ass whoopin.  (I'd never really let that happen, but I'm trying to tame her down a bit so she doesn't get me in any more fights.  Its been 25 years since she got me in the last brawl and I'd like it to be another 25 before the next.

Interesting find.  Not the origin of the folds but great and meaningful adaptation.

All very good suggestions, especially the Vortex scope.  Very hard to beat for the money. 

I'll offer my opinion as well.  The remy 700 is the most popular bolt action rifle ever made. (for a reason)  It is relatively inexpensive, reliable and most of all there are a gazillion (yes, that is a number larger than the national debt) options and accessories for it.

Gunsmiths are very easy to find that can make one shoot very, very accurately.  And smithing services are fairly cheap for it because it is made out of a round billet so its easy to chuck into the lathe.  So you can buy it today, use it for years and then if you decide to take it to the next level you can send it off to a good 'smith like GA precision, MG Arms, etc to have it blue printed and made even more accurate.

here is a good example


Nice M40 stock and good basic rifle.  You only need a 2MOA rifle to hit a 6 inch kill zone at 300.  Nearly any rifle will do that and many will get close to 1MOA (which is really good for a factory rifle) with the right ammo.  Things like bullet type, the overall length of the load (which dictates how far it "jumps" into the lands from the chamber) are real keys to getting the most out of a rifle. Most important is the trigger.


1, buy a remy 700 ( I would use a 300WSM or 300WM as you can load them "up or down" 140-220gn billets depending on what you want to shoot and kill anything on this continent.)

2. Consider upgrading the trigger to a Jewel HVR.  It will be the single best investment you can make in accuracy.  A creepy, gritty, heavy factory trigger will open up your groups considerably. Here's a neat little article
Yes, they are $200 but will make your rifle a much more effective killing machine.  Anyone with basic skills can install one and adjust it.  I'd even go so far as to say if it were a matter of money, buy the Jewel trigger first and live with a Barska cheap scope until you can upgrade that later.

3. get several brands of ammo and get down to the range and take your time sighting in and shooting groups.  Only shoot about 1 shot every 5 minutes to avoid letting the barrel get hot while you are assessing accuracy as most factory rifles are not "bedded" and heat from shooting several rounds in succession will change the point of impact. Clean your weapon about every 10 shots.  It will replicate the condition in which you will be hunting (a clean rifle) and until the bore is broken in, it will help keep undue buildup in the barrel which can affect accuracy. (really expensive aftermarket barrels are very smoothly machined and don't necessarily require that extra "break in".  Which ever ammo is the most accurate out of your rifle, use it. Alternatively, find a buddy that reloads and have him develop a load for you.

4.  Shoot safe and have fun.  Post pics of the Moose.

Didnt seem like a bad deal if the cummins swap was done well.  You can always find a bed for it

just off hand, who is nick?

the term for that buick is "DONK".  don't ask me where it came from or how it evolved, that is just what I have been told from certain soldiers that I work with.

Urban Dictionary:

Any POS late 80's or early 90's American heap (preferably an Impala) that has large enough wheels installed until it resembles (and rides and handles like) a Conestoga wagon. This is done so it sits up high enough so as to be at the same eye level as the Playas with real juice ridin in their Escalades. Adding in a bad candy paint job and Wal-Mart sub box completes the transformation.
With no money left over for necessary suspension and brake upgrades, the lifespan is limited to a few drug runs or the first Police chase, whichever occurs first.
That donk is fly and ridin high.
