I have been kicking around the idea in my head about building a .218. Anyone ever mess around with one?
Yep was at the gun shop a few weeks ago when a guy came in and asked for a box of 218 bee, everyone within ear shot looked at this guy like he had 2 heads and the gun shop owner acted like the guy was buying a $2k gun and he couldnt get the only box of 218 bee ammo he keeps in stock dug off the bottom shelf and wipe off that dust fast enough....I guess a $97 before taxes box of ammo is nearly as good in his eyes, but atleast your getting 50 shells!beagler said:The only thing I know about the .218 Bee is that a box of factory ammo costs about as much as my truck!
Ballistics is the main thing that makes it appealing. As far as being fur friendly proper bullet selection is more important then the cartridge.
