Thanks all knowing Doc. Sitting on a bucket kills my back. I will build my table, stand and be happy doing it. Besides myself and Blue if we meet up to train I have 3 other guys within 5 miles that would love to have access and use the bench now or in the coming months for FF.

Re: High powered rifle questions.

You can get nearly all the same calibers in an AR platform as a bolt action. Some states do limit magazine capacity on rifles which is managed easily in an AR from 5, 10, 20 or even 30 round mags. A 223 can do the job on hogs and deer but shot placement must be perfect to ensure a humane kill and no...
