Who says pistol cartridges can't be your favorite overall cartridge? For perhaps not so obvious reasons, it certainly is the case for me... and i have lots of fancy new rifles! I can reload my 32 with dippers around a campfire and still get varminting accuracy....

That's all well and good if you can touch the sides mate, but she might seriously need some extra neck tension after all those other expander balls have been through her!

She is, after all, the 2nd most popular calibre out there . . . :lol:

Truth be told, I'm with you - and I'm not even single! But there's no doubt everyone likes to brag about using a 30-06, so I probably wouldn't be keeping it a secret. :thumbsup:

Yes, but which one gives the best head?

30-06 - has to take her teeth out first, but the old girl knew how to handle a cockatoo in her day (she was in Caligula, after all)

.300 Winmag - would bite your dick off in a fit of roid rage

.308 - would probably stop half-way to take a seflie

6.5 Creedmoor - it takes another man to knows what a man likes! Hey, at least he tries :lol:

No mate, Michelle has always been an old style policeman's baton. Solid wood.
Well that's the effect she's always had.

OK, I admit it - I'm gay (I'm not really - honest!). But I took my 6.5mm manbun out today to do some load testing at 100m, and this is what I came back with. 4 shots into less than half an inch. So I may be a gay little manbun, but at least I'm a happy one :lol:
