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.
I believe I have my dads copy of that. Also have another book of his somewhere.
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.
All it takes is for someone to post another mystery round and boom, we are there.
Yep, and @Jimbob still has one in play.
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.
.240 magnum rimless, eh
Sooooo close mate but not quite
I'll take a stab, .240H&H ?
I'll give you that. It's a 244 H&H Magnum.
I would call it a 577/450 Martini Henry.
couldnt find mine to take a photo so had to get one on line.
You happen to notice what page we are on now??
yup ....that was obviously too easy..............the one i have is from occupying german forces from ww2. it was found behind wall boards when a building my father owned was redone in the early 1970`s
