Decisions, Decisions or How to spend $150.00

I've got a bit of hobby cash sitting around from some recent transactions here and at THR. I'm planning a trip to Bass Pro Shops later this week. (on vacation )

Some things I'm considering spending my money on:

1) BSA Sweet 17 Scope for my Savage 9317. $70.00-80.00
2) Rifle Basix drop in adjustable trigger for my Savage 9317 $80.00 (would have to order)
3) Butler creek Heavy barrel and synthetic stock set for my 10/22. $150.00
4) Ammo (9mm, .45ACP, .30-06)

Help me decide. Basically I can upgrade my Savage 93, I can upgrade my 10/22, or I can spend it all on ammo.

Hi RRN, here's what I think:

1. Buy ammo. It's not going to go down, only up. Everything else will be negotiable.

2. Send me half, and I won't tell your wife!

Ya'll need to come to Gulf Shores, Alabama on vacation. It's known as the Redneck Riveria! Beautiful beaches, and wonderful people!!(Except the snowbirds that came for the winter & stayed!) (just a joke, no flames please!) You would fit in nicely!!

Another possibility would be to invest in the beginnings of a reloading setup.


Anyone have any suggestions for an entry level setup for .30-06, 9mm, and .45ACP reloading? Can I get setup for those calibers with 150?

I'd upgrade the Savage.
