Browning’s SA-22 Challenge A variation on a well established theme

Yesterday, the morning was spent digging up and pulling out a pear tree by its roots with the tractor’s backhoe. Deceptively large root system for a less than massive tree. Working outside feels really good, even if the result is only being muscle sore or taking a nap. Love this time of year in Maine….

Supersonic – Subsonic Handloading the 7.62×39 Ruger American Ranch Part II That's why they put erasers on eggs...
