    Just got my MVP 308. Just like the 223, it looks great, no imperfections and good finish. That's as much as I can say for now, can't wait to try it!
    Have a Nikon BuckMaster 3-9x40 and some Burris rings on the way, this is going to be my deer rifle!!

    I don't know what kind of Ammo, you prefer, but take a close look at Buffalo Bore.

    On 2.5 inch barrel, I go the higher grains 180 gr, thus letting more powder burn before the bullet leave the barrel. Then only a 4 foot flash. :lol3
    1400 fps 783 ft. lbs. (scroll down 3 inch barrel 1302 fps) => https://www.buffalobore.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=100

    On my 4 inch .357, I prefer the 125 grain. 1,700 fps and 802 ft. lbs. at top of page, but per 4 inch barrel chart down below 1603 ft./Sec. https://www.buffalobore.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=103 See Video below on 125 grain BB, 4 inch barrel.
    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/4xbl8XIShi4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>



    Maximum specs on 38 Super +P is 115 Grain. 1450 fps and 537 ft lbs.
    If you want the larger grain, go to 147 grain or 124 grain which would probably be better for a 2.5' barrel, you can look up the specs here => 147 grain => https://www.buffalobore.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=229 124 grain => https://www.buffalobore.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=227

    This Video belwo, might help you understand what punch Buffalo Bores have on .357 round vs a .38 Special Round.

    Only thing I use for Concealed Carry in all my firearms is BB. Love the specs on their +P+ 9mm and does that Ammo perform. :eek1

    Oh, I like that, must confuse the fuck out of both sides at the range!

    Did it come with that furniture or is that your work?

    I think he said .38spl +P which is a very different animal from .38 Super.

    I find that chronographing loads is very interesting, because not only do the factory loads tend to vary wildly from what they claim, but the same load in different guns does as well.

    For example my carry load when I'm hiking is a 140 grain Hornady XTP using H110.
    In SP101 2.25": 1220fps/463ft.lbs
    S&W 686 4": 1367/581
    Blackhawk 6.5": 1452/655

    A 125 gr Rem. Golden Saber load with H110:
    In SP101 2.25": 1229fps/415ft.lbs
    Ruger Security Six 4": 1377/526
    S&W 686 4": 1351/507
    New Vaquero 4 5/8": 1451/584
    Blackhawk 6.5": 1488/614

    A 125 grain Remington Golden Saber load with AA#2 for less flash (also the load I use - except with rainier PlRN - when I shoot the 686 in IDPA):
    In SP101 2.25": 1267fps/445ft.lbs
    Ruger Security Six 4": 1367/519
    S&W 586 4": 1343/501

    And a 158 grain Nosler load with L'll Gun:
    In SP101 2.25": 1114fps/435ft.lbs
    New Vaquero 4 5/8": 1350/639
    Blackhawk 6.5": 1356/645

    All chronoed with the start screen at 5 feet from the muzzle.

    Dunno if all that is interesting to anyone

    That's a Montana sling.

    thanks, I got the idea when those gold plated ak's started popping up in iran and you can't use black furniture on a gold receiver.

    Love the stainless Guide Gun but my old 1895 is so accurate that I just could never justifying getting a Guide Gun.

    I so don't need one but my bud wanted cash and I could not stand seeing it go, so I'm sort of holding it for him. It's great looking and could be a good camp gun.

    I think it will be amusing to load for.

    Just a bit of spam, I've been using these guys quite a bit for my 22lr and .40cal ammo. Also picked up an awesome Polish Flare gun.

    Check em out.
