What are Your Spring Projects?

Savage 110 that started its journey as a 110 Tactical in .308. But with a 28″ carbon fiber .224 valkyrie barrel from X-Caliber, bolt head from PTG, and maybe a black Friday MDT chassis, it will be my varmint/LR fun gun that I can hand load long projectiles in and not have to worry about .223 case length restrictions in an AR15, with greater accuracy

Mine was going to be building a new reloading bench in my new apartment. But with the insane increase in lumber prices I’m opting to just use my press mounted to a small plywood base. Like I have been for the past 6 months or so.

I’ve got an LMT MWS on the way. So I need to dust off my gas gun shooting.
I’d like to see if the 6.5cm barrel will like the same load my bolt gun does. If so, that makes life easy.
The factory 308 barrel apparently shoots phenomenal so I’ll probably not mess with a custom load for that, got plenty of FGGM and clones for it.
Need to settle on an optic for it and start recording offsets for the barrels. Start building velocity data, load data etc.
And I’ve got 2 weeks to get it all done before I leave again.

Not spring sadly but hopefully by late summer hoping to convert my M10 ross i to a WWI MK3 * canadian Ross rifle with a scope and back up irons.

I’ve got a tikka receiver at the smith’s waiting for a 6.5 Timberwolf barrel. I want to see how it shoots 123 scenars over varget/8208 since there’s nothing out there that really bridges the gap between 6.5×47 and the grendel.
I might finally break down and order an Area 419 Maverick.
Modding an X Ray chassis to fit my T1x so I can shoot NRL22 with friends.

Mix of work and personal projects but all of them are in progress atm:
* “Jurrasic Park” long range build, waiting on the MDT ACC to finish it off.
* RimX .22 LR build, waiting on the action to ship and I need to pick a barrel for it.
* New .22 LR 10/22 build using some of the new Faxon 10/22 barrels.
* 6mm ARC AR-15 build of some kind — RECCE rifle? Long range precision plinker? Haven’t decided yet.
* Tikka T3x w/ CF barrel that isn’t a CF barrel — excited about this one, new barrel on the market that has some interesting tech. Going to rebarrel my Tikka with it to test it out.
* Toying with the idea of getting MDT’s new CF chassis to give that a test drive. Might pair that with the Tikka project, not sure yet.
* Want to make it to some more NRLX 22 matches but nothing is being held within about 10 hours of me, might make a couple of road trips for that but Im unsure still.
Any long range projects y’all are interested in seeing us do, let me know. These take time to put together but I love using work as an excuse to get new kit to test!

Hopefully my Terminus Zeus action arrives in a week or so then as soon as my barrel is back from the Smith working on 6gt loads with some vapor trail bullets!

In my dreams: another ZCO and a HTN26 for my Tikka lite hunting set up.
Realistically: buy more reloading components and shoot more. Roll myself back to the fundamentals and go from there.

My ever-ongoing Savage Axis project is still ongoing, but it took a backseat to my AR getting overhauled again.
Speaking of, my AR got overhauled and is still getting work done, and I started another with all the spare parts so I guess that’s happening too lol.
Plus I need to load pretty much all my 69smk’s and varget in the name of getting my KD at project appleseed.

Actually shooting my new rifle I got months ago… just had a daughter.
Also waiting for cans #8 and #9

Precision 223 rifle with as much bull barrel as I can get. Figured I’d finally get my “22 trainer” everyone keeps telling me that I need (that I really don’t). Hey, it may be centerfire and not rimfire, but it’s still 22 caliber! haha
