to using the 22 Hornet for Prairie Dogs, they range from 50 to 250 yds. "SHE" didn't want to use the BDC reticle and wasn't getting a 1:1 kill ratio.

This, of course, FORCES me to get out the 22-250's, using her dad's 55 gr. V-Max bullet pushed by 33 gr of Varget. Now "I" get to ladder load for the 22-250's, the M77 with a 24" brl. and the MK II with a 26" brl., dad just used the above load for both.

Oh, well, back to the reloading bench.

I don't know about you but I never argue with or contradict my wife.
Especially when she is armed.
Or any other time actually......:(

Yeah, mine grouses every time she discovers another gun that she didn't know about....
No secrets from mine, she knows when a new one comes in and where the spreadsheet is. She also keeps the ranchero, clear of skunks, *****, armadillo, possum stray cats and dogs. She will step out a door with her Henry 22 LR or S&W 27-2, 4" SS, 357 mag and shoot once, then want me to dispose of the remains. My response is always, "Yes ma'am! Where would you like them buried"

Early in our relationship, I ask what she would like for a Valentines Day present, she said a box of 357 JHP would do just fine. It wasn't until after the fact, that I thought that might have been a bad idea.

:shocked:

That was 25 years ago, now I just tell her, "When you get tired of living with me, just kill me in my sleep. Or if I have an accident out on the road with the motorcycle, just send me to a local crematorium and then UPS me home".

My wife is the reason we have no more room in the safe.
Which is weird by the way.
When we met she had never handled a firearm let alone shoot one.
I spent one weekend at the range teaching her to shoot.
In two days we went from .22 to 9mm.to .40 and eventually to the .45. She loved it.
We spent at least three days a month shooting after that.
We got married 6 months later.
God I love that woman............
46 years later she has more guns than I do.
I am so abused.........:(

It's almost always more or less a tie.
But I have a handicap in that I am taller.
The air is thinner up there.
Or something.............

Actually I think I have more shoes. She is not a clothes horse.
Handbags? She's a seamstress and makes her own so no contest there.
Makeup? She hasn't worn makeup in 15 years.
She says true beauty comes from the inside.
I just nod and say "Yes dear".

OK, this is just getting to scary for me, heading in the wrong direction!
Time for me to go drink some breakfast and let this subject sit for while.
