I have been working so much I don't have time to get out and shoot, but the upside is I have a little more toy money. So I bought a 700SPS-SS in .257 Weatherby, and an ADL-SS in 7-08.







The 7-08 has a Remington-branded 3-9x (probably, since they have the same parent company) Bushnell scope on it, and the .257 will probably get a Zeiss Conquest 3-9 until I decide what I want to leave on it permanently, probably a Conquest 4.5-14x44 or a Leupold VX III 4.5-14x40. I haven't decided what I'm going to do with the scope on the 7-08. I may decide to just see how it works, with the idea of trying to make it cry 'uncle', or I may drop another Conquest 3-9 on it, or maybe a VX II 2-7 or 3-9 LR Duplex. I've decided I want to somewhat standardize my scope brands on Leupold or Euroscopes, so that means that the B&Ls and Bushnells will eventually go bye-bye.

I also ordered a McMillan McSwirly (Remington Classic) for the .257, and it should be showing up today or tomorrow. I don't remember what color combo I ordered, but I know it's a lot more subdued that the one I posted a pic of in the DIY section. Tans, browns and black, probably.

Pody: did you get the RZ800 or the RZ1000 reticle?

Winxp: man, you're cruel! I barely had time to take the picture! :) Maybe my next trip home I'll get to the range.

Quick, with the price premium in Oz, how the heck are you able to afford all the cool toys? Selling spare kidneys? :) "Another NF"? Jealous!
