I just barely purchased a 300 H&H which is a caliber that I've been after for a long time now and i was hoping to get some guidance on what bullet/powder combos others have found successful. I am looking to be in the neighborhood of a 180 gr bullet but I have no experience loading this cartridge so some guidance could save me a lot of time.

I've got a Ruger No.1 that I bought last spring but just started working load development on recently. 180gr Barness TTSX and 165gr North Fork Bonded Cores are working quite well with H4831.

The TTSX's were best at max load, but a touch slow at roughly 2850fps. The North Forks are running well over 3000fps, something like 3100 or thereabouts. North Forks are right around 1" groups, the TTSX half that or better.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

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.
