Bob that is great performance with the Woodleigh's. If I couldn't get the Swift A-Frames I'd look real hard at the Woodleigh's as a second choice, (just me). As soon as my supplier gets in a new shipment I've got some Woodleigh Hydro Stabilized solids back ordered in 9.3 and .375. Looking forward to experimenting with those. By the way, very nice zebra!!

bob,
good to see a trophy photo where
a) the bolt is open and pointing in a safe direction and
b) the shooter is not crouched down looking like an idiot trying to make the animal look bigger, and using a wide angle lens to magnify that effect..
congratulations.

@Rick HOlbert
The hydros give excellent straight line penetration.
If you look at my zebra photo you will see the entrance hole about 2 to 3 inches above the last chevron on the front leg. We had to keep washing the blood off for the photo he was leaking that much.

Thank you for the compliment. The photographer did a good job but how he made me that good looking compared to normal is still a mystery to me, people usually tell me I'm but ugly.

that is not what the girls are saying.
they all agree that you are handsome and iresistable, and would like their babies to carry your genetics.

It would be interesting to meet all these girls but only if my wife wasn't around.
I could bet you London to a brick that each one of them has a white cane and seeing eye dog or after an Australian passport.

bob, the harder you play to get the more they will hunt you down.
oh by the way, the perfect age for the woman is 1/2 the man's age + 10.

Feel free to divide them between yourselves.

bob,
what she doesn't know won't hurt her.
the beauty of the young ones is that you can train them to suit yourself.
just look for looks, money and a pub, as well as temperament.
they only want you for your body( and genes) anyway.

Bruce, I used the same powder charge for both bullets, W748 although Varget gave almost same performance. I got the data from Paco Kelly and if interested you can get it from him. As long as I've been reloading slight compression was ok but heavy compression a no no. Well,.... the Barnes really compresses the charge. I was a little apprehensive and slowly worked up to his load. It worked! The .358 was held down to roughly 45000 lbs pressure because some "experts" back in the day said the .358 had horrible recoil. Fact is it's no worse than a 30-06 with the same weight bullet. Loaded to approximately 55000 lbs pressure and the .358 will get to within 100 fps of what the 35 Whelen will do in factory loads.

Probably more to with the weakness of the original BLR mechanism, i.e. you could break it whilst trying to extract a case after using a hot load. The gunsmith would pour Kroil or similar down the barrel and then unscrew the barrel from the receiver. I know this because a now deceased gunsmith friend of mine had to do that on a customer’s rifle (chambered for .308 Win) shortly after the BLR came out.

Don't you mean what she don't know won't hurt me.
As I keep telling you I'm happy with what I have.
You feel free to handle it for me . I will even give you a good reference.

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.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
