@Sierra_Bullets recently released their Prairie Enemy ammunition line for varmint hunters. One thing we noticed right away was the use of a new 69 Grain Blitzking in their .223 ammunition offering. We ordered some from MidSouth Shooters Supply. After receiving them, we pulled the bullets, cleaned them up a bit and loaded them in some .22 Creedmoor rounds. Cache Carlson shot them and the results were very impressive. This is an impromptu video I shot and added to just some of the shots!

Why does @black.wolf.armory have a smile on his face? Because this rockchuck was #16 for the day today. All of them taken with his .17/.223 rifle build from 80 to 275 yards! The fine folks below helped make this kick-ass rifle/hunt a reality. It is a 'chuck killing machine!

H-234 Sniper Grey @cerakote looks REALLY good on this upper/lower combo! Will this become a #6mmARC, or a smaller caliber, like a #17Remington? 🤔

We just received some Prairie Enemy .224 Valkyrie ammo from @Sierra_Bullets. It is loaded with their 69 grain Blitzking bullets, which is not available as a reloading component. Unfortunately, the arrival missed the deadline for our upcoming Valkyrie Rockchuck video, but we will be doing a short report on these rounds. We also ordered some .223 Prairie Enemy loaded with the same bullets, for another project.

Here we go!! @FranklinArmory 22-C1 Binary Firing System for 10/22 style rifles! It was an easy install. Now it's time to test it out in the desert! 😎

Some folks may not understand how lighter bullets, traveling at high velocities, perform on medium sized varmints. The 64 grain @sierra_bullets TGK out of the #22Creedmoor proves this out again.

We had to switch over to the Vortex Strike Eagle 5-25x56mm MRAD scope for our hunt this past weekend. We were very impressed with how it performed. Be sure to check out @shooter300 's upcoming review on the scope we used. It is priced very competitively and has some nice features. -----

The first hunting shot out of the 6mm Creedmoor build, was a rockchuck double! It was a good poke at 248 yards and smacked both of them, hard! They were both DOI (dead on impact).
@nv_pewpewpew made some great shots this past weekend. -----

@CacheCarlson drew first blood this morning with his new #22KillMore (.22 Creedmoor)! This rifle started as a CZ Model 550 in .22-250 and was converted to #22Creedmoor. We are working with Boomthwap on an article that will cover his build, a hunt report and finally information on load development and range results. Stay-tuned! -----

The next two stations are complete. I will need to mount presses, organize misc press items and begin staging tool heads with dies, etc on the third bench (pictured). I will follow-up with the picture of the Fourth (airgun) bench in the next post. The powder will NOT be stored on these shelves.
Step 3 - Third bench for two progressive presses (750XL & 550). Focus on Bee, Hornet and pistol caliber loading.

Step one is complete, but won't be fully organized until steps 2-5 are complete. That's one of my @dillonprecision 750XLs and a 550 on the bench. Only this 750XL will be mounted on this bench, with the other 750XL and the 550 on the bench in Step two.
-----
Step 1 - Main bench, with ship lap backing for video. Single-stage press (RCBS).
-----
Step 2 - Second bench for one progressive (750XL) press, bullet storage and brass storage below. Focus on rifle caliber loading. -----
Step 3 - Third bench for two progressive presses (750XL & 550). Focus on Bee, Hornet and pistol caliber loading.
-----
Step 4 - Fourth bench - Dedicated airgun bench, with storage for pellets/supplies. Space below for compressor and air tank storage.
-----
Step 5 - Fifth bench - Dedicated cleaning and scope mounting station.

Response from Aaron Davidson, CEO @gunwerks

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM GUNWERKS CEO REGARDING WELLS FARGO LITIGATION

Cody, WY – May 22, 2020

The reports of Gunwerks’ demise are completely false. In fact, we’re crushing it! So far, 2020 has set records for sales performance and profitability, and it only gets better from here!

This week’s report of Wells Fargo filing a lawsuit has gotten a lot of attention. The bottom line is, the litigation has been settled, the entirety of our Wells Fargo operating loan has been paid off, and it is business as usual for Gunwerks.

The Wells Fargo narrative of Gunwerks’ financial distress was untrue. The dispute was never about Gunwerks’ financial condition or late payments, but about a difference of opinion on asset valuation. Within days of filing the suit, it has been settled and the case will be dismissed immediately.

Most of the stories circulating around the social media landscape are just wrong! Here are two good examples: In Wells Fargo’s narrative complaint filed in federal district court, they assert that Gunwerks was delinquent on sales tax payments. This is not true now and has never been true (Check here for a list of current delinquents in WY). They also allege that Gunwerks is late paying vendors. Again, this is untrue. We pride ourselves in dealing fairly with our vendors.

Unfortunately, despite our numerous good faith attempts to resolve the issues with Wells Fargo, the bank chose to file a lawsuit, which has now been settled. Fortunately, we had the resources to pay off the credit line within two business days of Wells Fargo filing suit. Our customers have really supported us this year with record sales. We’re on track to have our best performing year on record.

I hope they can survive this. ----- Gunwerks, the Cody firearm manufacture specializing in long-range rifles, is being sued for $2.78 million by Wells Fargo for unpaid loans and interest.

The bank filed a motion in Wyoming District Court on Wednesday in Casper. The bank is also seeking to take possession of the company's collateral for failure to pay a $2.4 million operating loan.

In the motion Wells Fargo also states Gunwerks most recent financial statement provided to the bank in February shows company owes third parties in excess of $622,000.00 which is more than 60 days past due. Gunwerk's financial officer advised Wells Fargo that the Borrower stopped paying sales tax in the third quarter of 2018, and the amount due was approximately $365,000.

Forward Cody recently constructed a new manufacturing facility for Gunwerks with $6 million of state grants and funds. -----

We have video of this ground squirrel being blown up into the air, losing most of his insides and dropping a few feet away. But, he hung onto the grass stuffed into his mouth. I imagine the muscles shut off and clamped down while he was in flight.

Oldie, but still relevant. Ground Squirrels are destructive little rodents that create major headaches for farmers. When we are called to help, we "Cry havoc! and let slip the dogs of war." (in the form of rimfires and centerfires) - Animal rights wackos need to get a grip on reality!!

Two Jackrabbits taken the other night with the LCS Air Arms SK-19 full-auto 25 caliber airgun. I was using the new FX Hybrid Slugs that were just released. They performed well on these Jacks. The SK-19 has handled almost every pellet/slug I've put through it. It is such a nice rifle!

The 17VHA is one of those wildcat cartridges that really should have been more popular. It had a decent following back in the 1990s-2000s, but that seemed to wain as the years passed. With the release of the 17 Hornady Hornet, it all but died. I am lucky to have a good friend who is still very much into reloading the 17VHA and gave me a Contender Carbine Barrel chambered in the round. It did a world of damage on these Belding's Ground Squirrels! -----

I was able to get three doubles with the @FranklinArmory F17-X rifle during our last ground squirrel hunt. For this shot, I was using the 17WSM ammo with the 20 grain bullet. The shot was timed for when they lined-up directly under the barbed wire. Can you tell why I waited for that spot? 😎 ☝️ 💩 🤫
Check out the @tract_optics
scope on this gun. What a match! 😍

We are just about done with our field work with the Savage B22 FV-SR in 22 Magnum and the CCI VNT ammunition. We were shooting in some pretty stiff wind, but everything performed very well. These are Beldings Ground Squirrels, that were taken out of and around some alfalfa fields. -----

A big Jackrabbit taken with my Marlin 1894CL in .25-20. I was shooting the factory Remington ammo that uses the 86 grain flat-nose bullet. It works, but is not ideal for smaller varmints like these. Instead, I will be handloading some 60 grain HP bullets once I shoot up all the factory loads I have. It definitely does the job though! ---
