Haha. Thanks.

No "contest" though. Just sharing a few special pieces that I think you guys may enjoy seeing as I had trouble finding examples of some of these to view and examine when I was first learning and looking. Also, I very much enjoy hearing and learning from everyone else as well. :D

Vette447 and Red Leg, I hope both of you know I was just joking about the "contest." I'm sure that each of you knows what pretty rifles you have and are proud owners of such.

That rifle is a treasure. I hope you get the chance to use it in Africa.

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).
