I might live…

Today was much better. No head ache. Still some weird stuff going on in there. I know because it keeps running out my nose.

Spent a good part of the day answering a reader’s question about bullets and then several hours on an article about the .30 Rem AR. Spent an hour on the phone with Evin Galbraith – a super smart AR guy. Evin is a former DPMS employee who now works for the Remington LE Division. We were discussing the occurrence of case head swipe in AR rifles and what causes it. Anyone else ever wonder about that?

Here is the cool part of the day. Received my new Leupold VX 3L CDS scope with a custom elevation turret for the my favorite .30 Remington AR handload – which just happens to be a ballistic match for Remington’s 125 Accutip load.  Mounted it on the rifle and hope to sight it in tomorrow.

Oh, almost forgot, installed a set of 24 / 7 Big Dot sights on my GP 100 in .327 Federal. Guess I’ll have to shoot it tomorrow too.

If I feel as much better tomorrow as I did today, it’ll be like I got clean underwear on!
