    Oh yeah, I know. Warren Page. Way back when. We were both considerably younger back then.

    I have a diploma signed by him. Back in the early 70's I went to a packer and guide school in Montana and he was on the advisory board or something so he signed it.

    WOW. He was kind of a hero to me. You ever read "The Accurate Rifle"? He got me hooked on the .224 Centerfire stuff and I'm still burning powder in them.

    Still have my copy. Never bought One Man's Wilderness.

    Another book from back then is Jack O'Connor's The Hunting Rifle. Still read it now and then.

    One Mans Wilderness is the one I have. I also have the Africa Hunting anthology he edited. I have all of O'Connors books and all of Elmer Keiths as well, except for Safari.

    Nice collection. We probably need to let this thread go back to it's intended theme.

    Well gents it is bigger in calibre than the 220 Sooper Pooper, smaller in calibre than a 7mm, and larger cases than the 264 Win Mag.
    It is also British.
