cw,
when i bought my action the company was owned by don allen.
i think he had just bought out pete grisel.
it was pete grisel that designed the actions and started the business, then went into partnership with allen.

I don't know about the entire list but will go 100% with three. Wiggy sleeping bag, M-I Garand and Glock. Although the 35 Whelen AI is a strong contender- that is a fine cartridge! I didn't think anyone here knew what a Wiggy bag was. :) Have had a Wiggy bag for a long time. The only improvement I made was to add a thin, single layer nylon fabric over-bag- easy to keep clean and adds at least 10-20' to low temp range. Makes a big difference when the temps really drop. A foam pad down first or US milsurp alum. cot then the Wiggy sleeping pad, then a Wiggy bag. Mine made the trip to AK many times.

Drisabone oiled canvas jacket from Aus. Very durable and smart enough to wear to dinner too.

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).
