Instead of code we cook a mean yak stewYak stew. It doesn't get any better. That's living large.
Has there been any official explanation as to how this Herculian effort (raising the limit from 150 to, what, 250) was accomplished?Simply put, I asked.
Simply put, I asked.
So ask for a larger number..Who says I didn't?
Which means, of course, that all the other talk by the admins about 'fighting to get the limit raised' was a load of crap.It most certainly was not. They were able to add an additional 100, they weren't in the past.
Chan would never BS us... Ozzy.. maybe!Ozzy (Osbourne?) strikes me as a BSer too. This Ozzie isn't.
I think they can easily change the number to a greater number than 250, it's a change in the code.. the BS they fed us about slowing down the database and page loading times, is just that... after they limited the fav's, I didn't see a increase in speed..
The Remington 788 is an inexpensive yet accurate hunting rifle developed by the Remington Arms Company to compete with other gun companies' less expensive rifles and marketed alongside their more expensive Model 700 line. The 788 utilizes a single-column detachable magazine holding 3 rounds. A .22 rimfire model was also produced known as the 580, 581, or 582 depending on its method of feed. A target version of the .22 caliber 58x series, the 540X, was used by the US Military<sup id="cite_ref-0" class="reference"></sup> as a training rifle and later disposed through the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
The distinguishing feature of the 788 is its rear-lugged bolt. The bolt has 9 lugs in three rows of three lugs each. They lock into the receiver behind the magazine well. Because of this design, the bolt handle lifts only 60 degrees on opening giving more clearance for scopes compared to the 90 degrees required for the Model 700 and other two-lugged bolts. The bolt travel is also reduced because of the rear lugs. The receiver also has a small ejection port and no bolt lug raceways, making the receiver stiffer than a Remington 700, although it is the same outside diameter.
The 788 was made in many calibers up to the length of the 6 mm Remington. Magazines in this caliber are extremely rare. Most common calibers encountered are .308 and .243, but less common bolt-action calibers are available such as .222 .30-30 Winchester and .44 magnum.<sup id="cite_ref-788history_1-0" class="reference"></sup> These rifles differed slightly in the design of the magazine and the bolt. The front of these bolts did not rotate.
Remington made extensive use of 'screw-machines' in the manufacture of this rifle. The 788 was discontinued in the 1980s. In its used form, the 788 retains a cult following for its accuracy, despite several serious design flaws. Such as the safety, it is notorious for slipping up and making the firearm unfit for safe use. Because this rifle is no longer in production, replacement parts and expensive and difficult to find. The Remington 700 is still in production and is used (with variants) as a military sniper rifle. <sup id="cite_ref-2" class="reference"></sup><sup id="cite_ref-3" class="reference"></sup><sup id="cite_ref-4" class="reference"></sup> <sup id="cite_ref-5" class="reference"></sup>
