    Just wanted to see how hard it would be to custom make a stock. Fore arms are Birch. Baltic Birch Laminate used for the butt Stock. Not stained or finished. Next i'll try one for a converted 308. Fun to do. Custom fit to my face and cheek.

    Opinions on SP ammo

    I am definitely staying with the lighter 124, 125, grain bullets. Much more accurate for coyotes. Heavier rounds shoot all over the place.

    Muzzle device options

    Excellent Rifle. I would love to be able to build something like this. Well done.
  12. I am assuming it's an abandonded door bell transformer.. If so, They are usually 120v, if it's a sixties type. Disconnect one wire at a time and screw on a red or tan wire nut. Then tape over the wire nuts so they don't come off. If you don't know if it's abandoned and you have access to a multi meter, Put one lead of the meter on one wire and the other lead on the other wire. If you get a voltage reading, it's still hot. If you disconnect one of the wires and the door bell doesn't work, It's still in use. This type of cloth covering was common in the 60's. Sometimes the covering was asbestos impregnated. Becareful.

    My Saigas Are Awfully Hard on Spent Cases

    How interesting. I will give this a try. Almost sounds too easy.

    Hunting with the S308?

    Don't know of any pigs in Northern Nevada. I'm out around Fallon. I have done some Coyote hunting with my S308-1. Didn't do too bad. Farthest shot that hit was about 275 yards. Hard to tell if it was accurate. Yote was moving.
