Sorry to hear you live in NY… However, I live in the land of Lincoln, a state w most jailed politicians. Not too much better.
Yes, my ssg04 is in 308. Love it for its accuracy. I don’t reload. Just stay w 168gr good match loads. I also have a couple other bolt guns too. Tikka t3 sporter in 223, sako trg22 in 308 and a data srs a1 in 309 and 338lm. Yes, love to expend my larger cal rifle with a steyr ar10 dmr. Just completed the built of steyr m40 to 9mm barrel. Tested and works fine.
A couple of semi auto rifles like hk sl8-6/psg8 and beretta arx100.
Fun pistols like hk px4, usp in 45,40,357 and 9. P30s in 9. another pride and joy are my sp5k and sp5. Couple of cz and some beretta pistols. A couple of older Walthers. Working on a project to get a p88 sport 22lr conversion kit to work in p88 standard.
We have a couple ranges in driving distances to shoot over 200 yd. Just in general enjoy the shooting sports.
Please keep us informed on your progress.
Have a nice weekend.
