Why oh why did I do it???? I stuck my head in Dick's sporting goods. telling myself all the while that I was just looked for plastic ammo cases.  Yeah, right!  Just had to look over the fire arms.  What do my eyes preceive but a Remy 700 SPS combo package, synth green w/ wide forestock, 3-90X40mm scope on sale for $499 regular price 599.  Flat blued metal heavy barrel.  Very close to what I want in 223.  I want a thumbhole lamy stock with the rest of what this one has!  But $499, $499, $499 with the scope.  Luckily there was no-one at the counter or I would have at least asked the caliber.  This is going to BUG me for a while cause I know my tax refund is due in 2-3weeks and with the tuition credits I got, I am getting back more than I expected.  ARGH!  Bad Bud!  Stop It!

I needed another rifle like I need another ex-wife.  But the 'ar-15' style guns are mighty hard to find in my neck of the woods, so I went for it.

if you don't like it and struggle with buyer's remorse - you can always sell it and move on to another project... I am at that point on a couple myself..

I am set up for the first 2 guns, 270 & 308.  This one's gonna be a 223, which means...more Dies and bullets at least.  What powders are usually used in 223s?  Primers still LRs?

credit is over rated. Besides the "KING will bail you out if you get into trouble.

The guns may get very cheap with out a source of ammo. The only 300 win mags I am finding are $63 a box Fusion. .223 unheard of, .22 all sold out. Plenty of shotgun shells though.
