Yeah, and then if the hunting is bad you would have a maraca. ;D ;D ;DGJinNY said:Walnut media....GREAT IDEA! I was wondering what else to do with the 25 lb box I picked up at Harbor Freight.
What a deal, it is in the abrasive blasting media area. $22 for a 25lb box. Medium grit.
That explains why the muzzle bucked so much. The sand does reduce the recoil to the shoulder, but the muzzle is hard to control. My backwoods logic gets a little refined.dpe.ahoy said:Walnut or corn cob case cleaning media would be lighter. It would change the balance of the rifle, I prefer more weight out towards the muzzle, lets the sights settle down better. To much weight forward, and the rifle seems sluggish, to heavy on the butt and hard to control the muzzle. I find the XS/L-7 to be about right as it comes from the factory, for me. DP
It's not made to be used as a pry bar.jwilson48 said:i just filled all my synthetic stocks with foam except my mossberg 12 guage because it already has such good reinforcement in the stock. out of all of my guns, my x7 hands down has the cheapest stock. after you take the recoil pad off you can squeeze it and it really gives. after i foamed it, it has much less flex. i do wish i would've put a wedge or something in there now to completely eliminate any flex, but i'm still pretty happy with the results. the 6-24-50 scope i have on it added enough weight i didn't want any extra weight anyways.
