Oh and he also said that all the .223 ammo has been bought up by Uncle Sam...
 
Hey guys, is he a loon? or does he have good points?

It is not all bought up.  You can still get it, it is just like everything else gun related right now all of us worried about our government are buying like crazy.  Things are starting to show up again, I was at cabelas a few weeks back and they had tons of .223 stuff.

Hi 8shot;
Some years ago I pick up Savage model 12 in 223 when they first came out with that big lam. stock. I put an old Leupold 24X.scope with Redfield Mont's on it.
Went out to the rang and shot it at 200yd. with Rem . nickel brass,  Hornady 50gr VMax
bullet, Rem 7 1/2 primer and 27gr H335 [5] five shots one hole![.254] This. target is signed by two observers. I still have that rifle even though it is a right hand action.

TRAYS...

Did you end up purchasing the SS 3-9x42 for your AR? If so, could you upload a picture, I'd love to see it. I've read some good posts about it and I'm considering it for my Smith&Wesson 15T.

Alot of pics I see show AR's with shorter or red dot scopes, I only plan on shooting my about 200 yards (due to lack of shooting areas in Maryland). Maybe I should wait to get the SS for when I get my Savage...

Now that is what I have been striving for all these years. Glad to hear it can be done and I have not waisted all those years!

 I have a Bushmaster Predator 223 that is sub.5@100 all day but it is a $1500 gun. Also have a model 10FP savage with the thumbhole stock that will shoot just as well $600 with out scope.
 I am expecting a ss 20x42 today and am putting it on the savage, this is my second one going on a savage and have 2 more coming one for a new model 10fp in 7mm. I like the 20x because my eyes have hit 57+ and aint what they used to be.

 I forgot to mention if you would like a custom thumbhole try Richards microfit gunstocks he makes them to order for almost anything out there. They will use hard wood or laminate your choice with a 99% drop in fit.
 So that way you can buy the cheapest (read tupperware stocked savage) and still get your thumbhole and a SS scope and stay under your original$$.

Thanks for the lead Roger!  I love the Lamy thumbhole stock on my 12BTV .223 and would like to get one for my Savage 110FP that has the flimsy synthetic stock and is still 0.75MOA out of the box like that!
 
Does Richards have a website?

 I just came off the Savage web sight and if you go there you will see they make 5-6 thumbhole rifles right from the factory. Ranging in price from $700-$1200 take your pick.

Yeap they sure do!  Most in the gray lamy which I don't really care for.  I found a 12BTV blued with natural brown lamy thumbhole stock in 223 at gumbrokers for $700.  It was NIB but 2 years old (new old stock) when I bought it a few months ago.
 
I like it so much I want to put a Lamy thumbhole on my 110FP in 270WIN and get rid of the synthetic POS thats on it now.

My 110Fp in 270Win is a sportster barrel all blued action and barrel.  It cost a whopping $377 from Wally World with a cheap 3-9X40 Simmons scope on it.  Threw away the simmons, scored a deal on a 2.5-10X40 Bushnell Elite 4200 for $300 and she stays inside 0.75MOA as long as I pay attention even with a pretty flimsy forestock.  Drop that action and barrel into a nice Lamy stock for $75-150 and I'll bet my last dollar she'll hold 0.5MOA or better.

Bud I had to go to Richard's because they were the only ones that offer the stock for the long action right now.
 Stocky's out of Fla. has 1 but it is in red/beige and I didn't like it, but their supplier (SK) just got bought out by Remington and they don't know if stocks for other brands will be made anymore.
 Also Boyds only makes sporter contour barrel channels and too much wood would need to be removed for a bull barrel.
 You can get one made for as little as $149 or a lot more depending on what you want at Richards. I can't give a report on quality or fit yet because they are 6 weeks out from delivery as of Monday.

Thats just the ticket then!  I am liking the looks of Richard's tigerwood Lamies.  The Wildcat profile is interesting but I will probably go with a more traditional style.  Still haven't decided.  I'll check out boyd's too as my 270Win is a sportster barrel profile.

I just got slammed with a couple grand of dental work so I am a couple of months away from ordering anything.  Please post pictures and let us know what you think of your stock when you get it!

I put my 20x SS on a AR match rifle a month ago and shot a 3x600yd match. I may have been a little out gunned buy people that have been doing it for years, but had a great time! I haven't been prone shooting for at least 4 years. Of course the cal. of choise now is 6mm in this sport.  But the .223 made a good showing and can still perform out to 600.(80 gr's) My rifle was set up for prone and the scope set for 500yd+ parallex, focus set on the "+" side(old eyes). At about 2:00 in the afternoon the mirage came up but I was able to click in some correction and started to shot through it and pound the 10 ring. My SS made it easy to click in adjustments and had good luck shooting in a slight fishtail wind. Once in awaile the mirage boiled so I had to shoot through it to put points on the score card. I had a clear sight picture most of the match, and walked away with a 93%. Not bad after a 4 year layoff. Some (lot) pratice oh ya, Shot aginst highter priced rigs, ya, do it again, you bet !
