Started with .45acp for carry and competition 8 years ago. Rising ammo prices pushed me to 9mm exclusively for several years, now getting back into .45acp a little bit. For rifles, started with 7.62X39, but now exclusively .223/5.56


I pretty much love anything in the 6.5 variety and shoot my .300 win mag AR. 9mm for pistols and 12 gauge for my shotgun. I’ve got the following:


.22 LR
.223
22/250
.243
.257 weatherby
6.5 Creed
6.5 PRC
.264 win mag
.270
.280 AI
30/30
.308
.300 win mag

Shotguns
.410
20 gauge
12 gauge

Pistols
.223
.380
9mm
10mm
.357
.40
.45

I guess I've gravitated toward 22LR, 9mm, 5.56, and 12 ga.

I gravitated towards flat shooting rounds like .17WSM and 22-250, but with recent turmoil I decided that I need to have rifles in a more prevalent ammo. I already have the 5.56/.223 covered, so I picked up the M10X in 7.62x39.

Still undecided on caliber for a long range rifle build.


The fact that flamethrowers exist is proof that someone thought “I want to set those people on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done”.

I debated a 6.5CM for a while but was unsure due to ammo availability. When I saw Federal GMM at WM, I built one.

Necro thread Jack


Is it a Falkor Petra or a Nemo Omen? I want one pretty badly, just not sure which.
Falkor Petra, Sphur mount and NF ATACR F1 5-25.

I hunt with it more than my bolt guns.

I run typically odd stuff compared to most but have officially kicked 12g, 308 and 40s&w to the curb for better options.
