  1. Except me. A budget chassis rifle. In a non boring metric cartridge. The Savage Axis II Precision Long Action. Specifically in the near perfect 270 winchester. But but but. 270 isnt a long range round. Its not a competition round. Get a creedmore or a prc or a lapua....im good. Ive competed with the -06 family for 8 years now. And ive always wanted an out of the box sub MOA gun that isnt 2000$ and up. Thank you savage, for the first ever long action production chassis rifle. In stores for 750$. Teamed up with MDT to provide a super sexy sub 10lb gun.

  4. Nice looking rig, and better looking granddaughter. But, it probably wouldn't be allowed to park at the local riding arena. Why....... it's not a dually, (this is a guaranteed requirement) it doesn't have 5k worth of aluminum wheels, it does not have 50% of all parts chromed, it does not have a big chrome "Banks Turbo" emblem, the trailer does not have living quarters for 4 people and granite counter tops, angled stalls for 4 horses, nor a half dozen $10 per bale hay on top, needs a rollout canopy on the trailer for the horses, and a set of high $$ chairs and table so the adults can drin

  7. Heres hoping for no storm damage at sandhillers. Went on vac 3 weeks ago. 2 1/2 inches or more while we were gone i hear. But really dry now. Watered some of sweet corn this week as curling up an looking sick. Chance of rain several days next week and we need it. Of course i have a hay field that needs mowed now and not sure when to do it. If do it will rain every day. If i dont we probably wont get a drop. 🤷‍♂️

  8. In precision rifles, I currently have .223, .308, .300WM, .338Lapua, and the 6.5Creed and of course a couple .22LR's just cause. Out of all them I enjoys the .22's more than anything and enjoy shooting the .223 the most of the center fires. .300WM has great ballistics, but also a lot of recoil, and burns a lot of powder. .338 is crazy expensive to shoot, but it's an incredible round. 6.5 Creed has similar ballistics to the .300 but less recoil and powder. Inside of 500 yards a .223 loaded with 77gr SMK is hard to beat for hitting steel. Might be a little light on armo

  14. After weeks and weeks of no rain, the heavens opened a bit here just now! I can HEAR the corn and pastures lapping it up. Never had to buy hay in June before. And tomorrow we`re to get a BUNCH more.

  16. How about sunrise pictures? here’s some local pictures of corn and soybeans that are doing very well despite the dry weather we have been having. The hay crop is very poor this year, Most of the fields I’m getting 1/3 my normal yield, The 40 acres I baled yesterday only gave me 66 3‘ x 3‘ x 8‘ square bales, normally I get 160 to 200+ on a good year! Here is a picture of the best part of the 40 acres. We are having a major shortage of hay in this area, a lot of people are really freaking out!

  18. Nice gun in a great classic cartridge. 270 is a flat shooting cartridge that will take any north American game. On my list of guns i want to buy or build is a lightweight carbine/scout rifle in 6.5x55. Preferably stainless, all weather, mauser style action, and very light/first shot accurate. Thx-Ace

  19. Very much not original, but it's been that way my entire life, since dad got it in '81, so....we aren't changing it. -Large- Schwitzer turbo, fair amount more power than the M+W 856.....and a fabulous deep whistle.

  21. I saw it hit a pine tree. I was almost blinded by the flash. All the bark blew off one side; I assumed it boiled the sap and the steam blew it off. As for the original question: I would bet it depends on the soil moisture/conductivity. When we've had lightning strikes on planes it's been various degrees of destruction. Years ago at the airline we used to see it quite often. DC9s seemed to have the most in my memory; could be because they did the short hauls with the most TO/LDGs. We had to identify the entrance and exit wounds. On the 9 it seems often struck just below the windscreen

  22. That’s a lot of rain in a short time. I had heard that North Battleford got hit pretty hard. Going to be hard on all the pulses. I saw a few fields of peas closer to Melfort that were getting pretty stunted from all the rain. Lots of yellow patches in the field. Thought we were going to get hit tonight again but the clouds seemed to split and go around us. Only had a few drops here. Just enough it was running off the shop roof for a bit. Took this photo about 9:30 when I was coming back down from the shop.

  29. Here is a picture of a transmission stand that I manufacture for holding the rear housing of tractors. The stand in the picture is from a Farmall 450 that I parted out a few years back. I have used this same stand on a Farmall C, H, M, 350, 560 and a 1256 that we did a TA job on this past winter. It just takes a few different attachments to make is fit.

  36. Dad bought a brand new 1256 in 69, I was a sophomore in HS at that time, I LOVED the way that tractor sounded, especially pulling a 6 bottom plow. I am now 66 years old and can't hear worth a damn either, LOL.

  37. Allis bought Simplicity in the 60s and sold it in the 80s , So that machine is AC. I have 3 late Cub Cadets (82s) and prefer those Allis tractors. The mower decks were the best on the market and the tractors were built very well. 700 and 900 series are fanastic0 any of them with the single cylinder Kohler gave very little trouble if I was closer it would be sold!
