The number of wildcat cartridges that are now 'factory' rounds is long and distinguished...

.22-250
7mm-08
6,5-284
280 Remington
.257 Roberts
.25-'06
.35 Whelen
and a bunch more.

I own a Ruger No.1 in 25-'06 (25" barrel) and a .257 Roberts. I like them both! the .257 is a 300 yard rifle, but the .25-'06 is great for those loooong shots on Coues deer and antelope. The 25s work well on coyotes, too.

You've got to love the 25s for versatility.

The 25 out six and the 257 Weatherby and my own 25/303 Epps Newton improved are even more of a good thing

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Sold a Blaser scope mount to him. He was a pleasure to do business with.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.
