    Red power showdown '86 tractors

    The Red Power Demonstrator tractors were 1979 models and most of them seem to have been 1486, & 1586 although any of the 86 tractors could of been a demonstrator. Most all of them were optioned out with the burgundy interior as well.

    308 vs 6.5 Creedmoor

    The drop doesn't matter as much as the wind. You can calculate for the drop and it's pretty predictable and repeatable. But the wind is a different story and the better BC of the 6.5 bucks the wind better with less drift.

    308 vs 6.5 Creedmoor

    Let's see if my math works today. It's late and I'm tired so I may be wrong! 1 MOA is about 1.047" at 100 yards. It's a measure of angle, but 1.047 is pretty universally accepted best I remember. at 1 mile (1760) yards 1 MOA is 18.43" (1760/100X1.047) It's reasonable to shoot sub MOA at 100 yards and a good shooter with a good load/rifle can shoot 1/4 MOA IF everything works well, but 1/2MOA is much more believable. so half MOA at 1 mile would be about 9" or the size of a regular dinner plate, so in theory it's possible..... But while a person can shoot 1/2 MOA at 100 that gets really hard after about 600-800 yards. The wind alone plays a big effect of bullet placement even with just a 1 mph change or miscalculation. I'd have to see a 1/2 MOA group at 1 mile to believe it. In theory it's possible but not likely! I grain of powder difference from shot to shot could mean a pretty big difference in elevation at 1 mile.

    308 vs 6.5 Creedmoor

    I call BS! It may look like a dinner plate in the scope, but it's got to be way bigger. Dinner plate size groups at 1 mile would be something like 1/300th moa LOL No way Jose! And you'd have to have one heck of a scope to see a dinner plate at 1 mile. I should say see enough to accurately hit. Plus as has been mentioned it takes the bullet alone at least that long just to get to the target little alone the sound to come back. I don't doubt the 1 mile part as I know the Lapua is capable. It's a bucket list item for me to take my Lapua to one mile it's just hard to find the range to do it at. I've shot over 1K with it at "man sized" (IDPA) steel target and the next step is to take it out to 1 mile. It would take a heck of a shooter to hit dinner plate at 1K. I know it can be done, but it's not easy and the wind change alone can throw you off easy at that distance on a dinner plate size target. Unless of course a Dinner plate is about 24" across where you are from!

    308 vs 6.5 Creedmoor

    I like my Savage Rifles. They shoot incredibly well, and are a great value for a precision rifle. I own several in hunting configuration as well as "target" models, up to and including a .338 Lapua. I just shot my new Savage Ashbury Precision this past Saturday. I picked it up at Grab a Gun for 869 and bought it because I wanted a 6.5 Creed to try out and because I couldn't build a rifle for that money. I have a rifle range set up at the farm that is just over 200 yards, and can find a place or two to shoot more than that, but my range is limited to 225 or so. The Ashbury I put a Vortex 6-24 Strike Eagle and along with two of my buddies we shot the 6.5 for the first time. None of us had ever been around one before, and all 3 of us were shooting less than 1/2 MOA groups pretty consistently with factory ammo. I was pretty impressed with that. I would not hesitate to buy another Savage in 6.5! The ballistics mimic 300WM, but with a lot less recoil. I have a 308 as well and it's running out of steam at 1K where the 6.5 can shoot a bit farther, and with a lot less elevation adjustment, and wind correction. It's got an incredible BC and it bucks the wind very well. I haven't taken the Creed out to any real distance yet but it should be ballistically superior to the 308 at long range. Under 1K range either one will certainly work. 308 is a great round as you know and is very versatile. I read a thread a while back that said the 30-06 was outdated and an antique cartridge!!!! I had to laugh and still find that amusing. My 06 killed 4 deer this past fall all with one shot. Furthest was across a field off hand at 198 yards (for once I had my range finder with me) and I couldn't of made a better shot. Even I get lucky once in while! 308, 6.5 Creed, 300WM, or even an ole 30-30 would of worked just as well. Although I've yet to see a 30-30 lever gun accurate enough for a shot much over 100 yards. You've got a 308, try something out new I don't think you'll be disappointed. I have heard the 6.5 Creed is like the NE Patriots. No one can deny they are good, but everyone still hates them! LOL

  12. At my last work assignment I had case manager who's name was Loretta. She really had a tough job and got called the B word a few times by clients even though she really wasn't, but she didn't take any crap either! Long story short I ordered some new wooden brooms, and I kept one back. I added ribbon and a bow to the handle, and then very carefully made a new parts sticker for it and changed the part number and description to "LTD" Loretta's Transportation Device. I left it on her desk for when she returned back from vacation. At first I didn't know if she was going to kill me or think it was funny, but she laughed and laughed and kept that in her office up until she left and went to work someplace else a couple years later. I wished I had kept a picture of the label that I made for it. Other than the barcode which I couldn't reproduce it looked nearly identical to the label that broom came with!
