1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Recommend: Go buy a new Savage with the laminated, not plastic, stock. You will pass go and never look back. And no, I don't have any stock or ownership in Savage arms!

    Savage Predator. If you want the good stuff, heavy barrel varmint rifles the 12 Low Profile or 12BVSS are marvelous.

    Watch your twists, though, lots of 9 twist barrels in these various 223 models to shoot heavy bullets.

    You may want to pick a model with a slower twist if you intend to shoot lighter bullets.

    That said, my PD partner has a 12BVSS (9 twist) that shoots 50 grain pills just fine.

    And the good part is you can change the barrel youself, new ones can be had for 200 or so and I just bought a Wrench on sale at Midway for 30 bucks with shipping.

    Go to switchbarrel.com to learn more.

    for under $600 you can get a remington mdl 700 SPS Tactical with Hogue stock and 20" heavy barrel and new Rem X trigger. Mine shoots under 1-minute at 100 yds and the short 20" barrel is very handling friendly.

    If you get selective with the ammo you can get it down to almost 1/2MOA. Here are some pix. I did the stock camo pattern. It has a Bushnell 10X elite scope.

    Make sure it also fires 5.56mm military rounds; some bolt actions are only set up to fire .223 Rem. Most AR types are 5.56/.223 Darrell
