So which sas would best fit my bill? Not to get into an argument but I would want a direct connect.
I'm far from an expert, so this will be worth what you paid for it, but I'd say the Barricade is the ticket if nothing bigger than 6.5 cal is to be used, and primarily bolt guns. If you want to go up to 30, the reaper is their 30 cal hunting can. It's a few years old, not the newest design, but whether that matters I don't know.
I bought the TBAC Ultra 7CB first, after months of thinking about it. I only sprung for the SAS for my 2nd one because of the $250 off msrp price, figured that's like getting a free tax stamp. I also wanted one in Direct thread to use on hunting rifles that I'd prefer not to have a brake on.
