Hello all! I just found this sight. I'm not new to the 8/81's, I bought my first 81 in 1998 and haven't been without one since. I've had 3 81's (300 savage,30, and 35) but only have the 30 currently. I just picked up my first 8 this weekend. It too is a .30. I'll try to post pics later. It's nice to have a place to share info on these awesome rifles!
Hi everbody, I'm located just on the Illinois side of St. Louis, Mo. As far as ammo goes, I'm pretty well stocked. Since I aquired my first 81 in 30 rem. over 14 years ago, I've latched onto whatever I could find. I was smart enough to buy 500 new cases back in 2002 (for $150!!) and I've also scrounged up about 10 boxes of late 60's Remington ammo, some late production Remington stuff and even a couple boxes of Winchester silvertips. I use RCBS dies with a custom Lee factory crimp die for the hand loading part. I saved most of the factory stuff preferring to use handloads most of the time. I like to hit out of the way gunshots in small towns when I find them because once in a great while you can still find some on the shelf.
