    Sometime last year I believe, can't remember the exact date. I'm a big fan of my Hawkeye - I have the predator version in 6.5 and it's a blast

    Yeah, I looked and it seems it was last August. Now I have something to think about. :)

    Have that rifle in RH and in .308.. It is simply an OUTSTANDING rifle at its retail price point..

    Been thinking about picking one up in 6.5 creed based on how impressed I have been with the .308

    Uh, half my bolt-action rifles are Savage. Oh wait the other half are Ruger M77. They all work well to me.
    And honestly, that's one each :)

    Wasn't bashing Savage, I own two actually including an old rotary mag 30/30 lever fun (model 99 I think?). Just not what I have interest in.

    Especially now that I know I can buy a Creedmoor with a muzzle brake!!!! :A Stirring:

    So thankful that my wife keeps more guns in the house than I do, and loves hunting and shooting in general as much as I do... I really cant imagine happiness in any other sort of relationship..

    No frosted balls around here :)

    These are the men who end up taking their wives with them, not because the wife likes to shoot or hunt but because she won't allow him to go on any vacation without her, they end up spending more time doing day excursions than actually hunting.

    Cripes, I hope no one is taking this stuff personally. I know I fit a couple of the pet peeves of others but I have broad shoulders and get a good laugh out of them. I put a brake on my new 28 Nosler arm cannon because my skinny ass can't handle the recoil. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Pet peeve: my PH insinuating that all those scratches on my legs are easily avoided if I would just walk around the bushes...
