i love big bore guns... but I would trust the 7x57 Mauser and the 6.5x55 Swedish for just about any PG. I used a Winchester M70 featherweight in 7x57 for a little while as a deer rifle and many were shocked at what that non-magnum cartridge would do.

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?

Do you still have the set of gaiters you talked about on the site? Gerry

Mtn_Infantry,
That's a monster buck you have in your avatar! Very Nice! Anyway, my brother in law and myself are planning to do some fishing while in Port Aransas. I think he/we are planning on taking a boat charter out a couple of days. He's a serious fisherman and I am not. Any suggestions?
Thanks!
Mark Griffin
