Hi, I just want to see who else out there collects ammo for the 8 and 81.

no serial #on 81

New guy

Hi everybody. I just found this sight and I am so happy. I love the 8's and 81's. I have owned 3, but only a rough 81 in 30 Rem. right now. I look forward to learning even more on these great rifles.
