      Over did my 420 Character limit. I live out in Unalaska but pass through Anchorage fairly often would be great to grab a beer and swap stories sometime.

      Hello, You replied to my scope recommendation a while back and you recommended 400 gr swift A-frames in a 458 lott. As a big fan of the A-Frames already
      I decided to take your advice and was curious if you had any load data for them or if you bought factory rounds from swift.

      Velo Dog, I just saw that you are in AK. I was in Fairbanks from 00-03 and Kenai from 03-07. I'm sorry we did not connect up there!

        Yes, would've been fun do meet up and discuss hunting, fishing, guns and gear.
        Where do you live now ?

        We moved from Kenai to Alabama in 2006/7. I was running the nitrogen complex in North Kenai and the company transferred me to a new role in Bama. I wasn't financially ready to retire or I would have turned them down flat. We loved living in Alaska. Prior to Alaska we lived in Wyoming for 9 years so I've been a little spoiled.

        Hi Ado,
        I will research my past emails, as I recall an outfit that was offering what seemed like a good elephant deal in The Caprivi awhile back.
        When I find it I will send you their contact info.

      I know you like the Hornady 220gr RN in 30 cal. Midway has some blems on their site for 20 cents apiece!

      Better go get some buddy!

        Thanks Tim.
        I really appreciate this and will bag a supply for them for my PH friend who plans to be here in a few days.
        He will no doubt be very happy to bring them back to his place for culling and his personal "shooting for biltong".

      Hi Velo dog, only had a look at the site this evening.
      Sorry I did not send you a PM, most definitely. I had to look around to find you in the members list to PM you.
      I only turn 60 in September so senility isn't in it. :-)

      Cheers for now.
