Hello everyone.  I'll take a moment to introduce myself.  I'll probably not be very active here.  But, looking through the forums, you have most of my interests covered.  So, I may be more active than I plan. 

Actually, I followed Ron (TasunkaWitko) here from another forum.  So, if I'm a pest, blame him.

I've lived in the same town (north-central Oklahoma) since my birth.  That's a half-century in the same zip code (with the exception of college years).  I'm a self-employed grading contractor, starting with my father at the age of twelve.  I did farm with my grandfather for about five years before I pulled a "boner" and he chose to exclude me.

I enjoy being active in civic work, spending time with my family, cooking, and other liesure activities.  Hunting, informal target shooting, reloading metallic cartridges and fishing are other activities I enjoy, but don't have as much time for as I used to. 

I probably have ten or eleven rods and reels from ultra light (spinning)to medium/heavy baitcasting and spinning rigs.  Not much fly fishing opportunities here in the flat land.

My hunting consists of mainly deer and coyote, but I do find time for pheasant and quail when the opportunity arises.  I'd love to go elk hunting sometime, but never have felt like I could justify the cost when I have college educations to fund.

I have several pistols ranging from .22's to .44 mag and .45 acp.  A couple of Remington shotguns ( 1100 20 ga. & 870 12 ga.) take care of my winged hunting.  My long guns consist of two T/C Omega .45's, a 10/22 Ruger, and three Number 1 Rugers (.223, .45-70, & 7x57).  I will usually have a .22-250 around, but don't have one presently.  I'm saving up to buy a stainless Tikka T3 in that caliber (hopefully this year).   My last .22-250 was a Remington VLS I bought for informal plate shooting at a local range.  It was too heavy for anything else and they closed the range. So, it left the safe.

My two sons have deer rifles as well.  One shoots a '98 Mauser (.257 Roberts) sporterized and customized by me and the local gunsmith.  My youngest son has a blued Tikka T3 in .25-06.  His rifle is the reason I want the .22-250 Tikka. 

Sorry for being so long.  I look forward to reading your posts!

Dirt Guy;

Yeah, this is kind of a Tikka sorta place.  I'm in the final stages of creating a Tikka 6.5 Swedish Mauser, left hand bolt.  That'll join the Tikka .338 Winchester magnum in my safe.

You might want to check out the CZ's too.  There's a coupla them in my safe also.  I do believe that you could probably find a CZ550 in .22-250 if ya looked a bit. 

Come to think of it, I've got a Ruger #1V in .220 Swift.  That's the cartridge the .22-250 wants to be when it grows up ya know.

I had a Swift--I couldn't afford the powder for the extra 20 fps.

Actually, the head space wasn't correct and I could only get about three reloads before the cases would seperate.  It didn't stay around long and the dies went with it.  It did shoot sweet, though.

Dirt Guy;

My Swift's just the opposite.  I'm running one full grain under max load & getting 100 fps over the book velocity for max load.  Not having any trouble with case life either.  It's delivering 3960 fps with a 50 grain bullet on 45 grains of Vhita N160.

Glad to see you post dirt Guy.  You can't be all bad, you have an 870 and a Ruger #1 in 7x57, even if you are a friend of Ron's.

BBS is small but a pretty good place to hang out.  Most everyone is congeal, and you can get and give a lot of advise and opinions.

Hope to see you post.

Glad to see you Dirt. As of late, the only new members were trying to sell hardon pills , porn, and russian brides. It's good to see new legitimate guys here and with a name like yours, you'll fit right in, so wear out that keyboard. OH!! I forgot to ask, are you a drinking man? Personally, I never drink unless I am with someone or by myself..........................Kingpin

Only to excess....not really.  During college, I drank lots of Coors (Charter President of Uncle Adolph's 2000 Gallon Club) and other adult beverages.  That continued until I decided I was overdoing a bit.  In the late '80's until the mid-90's, I didn't drink at all.  I was State Chair for a substance abuse program--didn't want to look hypocritical.  I also got back involved in my local church and I was reminded of doing everything with passion--but in moderation.

Since then, I've done so in moderation.
