Varget vs N140

So I have shot Varget with great success, and other VV powders as well. The price of Varget compared to N140 for an 8# jug is almost $100 difference. Anyone switch to shoot N140 instead of Varget? Is the newer formula of N140 more temp stable compared to years past? I'm looking to buy a few 8# jugs for my 223, 22ARC, and 6br. Any compelling reason to choose one over the other? I'm just thinking if I bought 3 8# jugs of Varget, I could get 4 jugs of VVN140 for the same price. its tempting me.

Firearms Remington 700 Long Action Magnum Complete

I will post pictures of this action later today when I get home from work. It is a Remington 700 Long Action Magnum Bolt Face action, unmolested. Bolt has jeweled body. Action came off a 28 Nosler rifle I am parting out. Rifle set for some time and there is some slight discoloration in the threads. Without trying to hard, a little oil and a few swipes with a shop towel clean the majority of it out, so there is no issues. The other parts to the rifle that I'm getting rid of are listed in accessories section. Action will come with trigger pins. $550.00 shipped FFL to FFL.

Audit Finds California Has Spent $24 Billion on Homeless Programs Over Five Years and the Problem Has Only Gotten Worse!


San-Francisco-homeless-iStock-1200x630.jpg



Cities across the country are dealing with an exploding problem of homelessness, but places like Los Angeles and San Francisco in California are among the worst.
In a shocking turn of events, an audit has found that California has spent $24 billion on homeless programs yet the problem persists and in some places is getting worse.
Would California have seen better improvements if they just gave this money directly to homeless people? Could the outcome have been any worse?
The Washington Examiner reports:
An audit in California found that the state spent $24 billion on homelessness over the past five years, but the state did not accurately track if the funds actually improved the problem.
The state has spent roughly $24 billion on initiatives to address homelessness, and the audit analyzed a combined $13.7 billion that went to five programs across the state from 2018-23. Despite the money being spent on 30 homelessness and housing programs, the audit found that California does not have reliable data to see why the situation did not improve in cities across the state.
“This report concludes that the state must do more to assess the cost-effectiveness of its homelessness programs,” State Auditor Grant Parks wrote in a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) and lawmakers.
Democratic state Sen. Dave Cortese requested the audit in 2022 after he toured a homeless encampment that had been cleared. He said results from the audit found a “data desert,” which found a continuous cycle with many experiencing homelessness placed in interim housing. Of those people, only 13% found a permanent home and 44% became homeless again.
How many people working for the state became wealthy off of these homeless programs?
In it, state auditors found that homeless numbers jumped 53% in the last decade with an estimated 180,000 people unhoused in California, despite the spending of more than $20 billion to stop it. https://t.co/R19ozBFHcn

Some quick math on California homelessness. In 2015, 1 out of 336 people in California were homeless; in 2023, it was 1 in 215. This despite tens of billions of government spending at all levels. pic.twitter.com/17wlPVBTYm

This is a scandal. The state has spent billions on homelessness, and it's worse. Also, outcomes literally mean everything when it comes to homeless services, and unsurprisingly, they have no data. A full independent audit must be done. Now. @GavinNewsom https://t.co/RZUhruH9sK

Whatever the state has been doing, it’s clearly not working.

Bahahaha


U.S. Attorney Marin Estrada announced the charges Thursday.

Ippei Mizuhara served as Ohtani’s interpreter after Ohtani came to the U.S. to play baseball. Estrada says Mizhuara “acted as Mr. Ohtani’s de facto manager.”

Estrada says Mizuhara helped Ohtani set up a bank account where Ohtani developed his baseball salary. Estrada says Mizuhara stole more than $16 million from Ohtani’s bank accounts to pay for his own sports betting and lied to the bank to access the account.

DOJ New Gun Sales Requirements


Rule Seeks to Implement Provisions of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act and Provide Clarity on Who Must Obtain a License and Run Background Checks
The Justice Department today announced it has submitted to the Federal Register the “Engaged in the Business” Final Rule, which makes clear the circumstances in which a person is “engaged in the business” of dealing in firearms and thus required to obtain a federal firearms license, in order to increase compliance with the federal background check requirement for firearm sales by federal firearms licensees.
“Under this regulation, it will not matter if guns are sold on the internet, at a gun show, or at a brick-and-mortar store: if you sell guns predominantly to earn a profit, you must be licensed, and you must conduct background checks,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “This regulation is a historic step in the Justice Department’s fight against gun violence. It will save lives.”

"This is a regulatory rule, not a law enacted by Congress. It is likely to be challenged and overturned in courts."

Accessories Rifle Part Out

The long action for this rifle is listed in the firearms section. I will post all the pictures for everything later.

4. American Defense QD mount. I had it on a small pic rail $60.00 shipped

5. 28 Nosler Prefit barrel for Remington 700 threads. Barrel brand or who chambered it is not known. It is stamped 28 Nosler and is a 9 twist. Person I got the rifle from said it had 43 rounds on it. Rifling looks excellent. Profile of the barrel appears to be a straight 1.05" all the way out. I can get another measurement on it though when I get home. I'm thinking it may be a 28" barrel, but will double check. It will come with the barrel nut. $250 shipped

Thanks for looking, and if you have any questions or need me to get you additional information, feel free to contact me. And like stated, I'll get the pictures up later this evening.

OJ Simpson, Dead at 76

From prostate Cancer, in Las Vegas, apparently, on 04/10. The family released a statement.


How many of you can recall where you were when the verdict was read? I was in a meeting at work and where the "director" had called a meeting of all his dept. managers and employees. He was a "no-nonsese" kind of director. He wouldn't take any crap. But there he was, putting the "radio" on the speakerphone (this speakerphone had a radio option), and there we were waiting for the live verdict. Of course, he turned it off immediately after the verdict had been completed, but...

Say what you will about his personal life, he could play ball. Although I will say that he's one of the primary examples that "broke" my admiration for celebrities. Now, I don't care about 'em.

Well.... maybe "Uncle Ted..." :ROFLMAO:
