I was hoping for a month. That would be nice. I always bought from in stock so this will just add to the waiting fun.

I've got a few stamps myself...

But they are old .47 postage ones.

Enjoy the new can UAF. Some of the local guys really have me wanting to get my first can once I'm back on my feet.

My Thunderbeast 30P1 just got to my dealer. It's starting it's jail term and I am just starting my own wait. Congratulations!

So now the next time. If and when are you going out to try it? I'd like to be there...

I'll help carry your gear so you don't slip. Wouldn't want your can to get scratched breaking your fall. You might end up selling it to me down the line after you've sold your .338L. Not like you haven't done something like that before.

Now I have to sell my DTA 338LM barrel to get one that's long enough

But I still have 2 other DTA barrels and a 300 Norma mag bolt gun that I can run it on

I must be losing my mind. I'd swear that you just said you'd have time to go shooting Enjoy it UAF

I'm jealous you have somewhere to shoot a 338lm!

This is Alaska, are you saying you can't find a place to shoot long? There are places to shoot .338LM, but few places to shoot it and fully appreciate it's capabilities, but they are out there.

I'm in Los anchorage. Surrounded by state park. Birchwood range only goes to 300yds.
Supposedly there is another range up the parks at mile 95ish that has a 1,000 yard range.

But yes, it does seem silly to be in the biggest state and not have somewhere to shoot!

Well unless UAF goes somewhere out off the beaten track we only have a 300 yard range as well.

I've always wondered about the legality of shooting on the ridgetops near Murphy Dome since you could shoot damn near forever. Except changing targets on a 45 degree slope would suck

That's a shame. I have friends who live on the outskirts of town who can just open their back door and start shooting. We don't use our range for long distance - you just have to find a spot in the woods that you can access both ends of your shot. I have a friend who shoots 700+ yards and the spot he uses is within an hour of town. While he was at it he found a place to shoot over a mile. However, checking your target is a bitch as it's no cake walk to get to it.

I was fortunate in that for a long time I worked at remote USAF radar stations that had to be serviced by C-130's and most of our sites had an active runway that was more than a mile long. We would just put a chair and GI desk out there, use the truck driving 70+ to get to the other end. Alternately on northern sites, we would have fun shooting at ice chunks in the sea.

I have see a guy using that bench to sight in a bow with his target pointed towards Northland Wood so I had assumed that was what it's for.
Link Posted: 9/17/2014 2:21:26 PM EST
The bench was taken off the line to make room for heavy equipment to be able to get in and out.

I can't believe they left it back there, too tempting to use.

Different story - had some idiots back by that bench, shooting clays with shotguns. IN THE PARKING LOT BEHIND THE LINE OF SHOOTERS at the benches!!! Everyone else is up on the line and these guys were shooting behind us at clays tossed up in the parking lot. WTF?

That sucks UAFgrad.
What .338 barrel are you going to go with over 20" and what length? I can't decide If I want a DTA or Sako 42 .338LM next. It will be one or the other. I'll also be getting the TBA .338 can. Viper has my TBA 30BA and the paper has cleared!!!! I just need to get it from him!

Until that day,
Darkop

I appreciate that! I don't know when I'll be in the FBX area again but when I am I'll try to give you a heads up on lead time and see if we can make it work out. Keep us informed on what you end up doing on the barrel and how it turns out.

Until that day,
