    image.jpeg Picked up this jewel last night, but it came with a tremendous price. One of my best friends recently passed away from cancer and left this to me. I'm going to make sure she gets out to the game fields this coming season, but it'll be bittersweet without him.

    Losing a good friend is hard, time heals the hurt but you have a great piece of him to take with you to the field to remember. As the years go by it becomes much more common place to see people you love leave this earth. All part of living, regardless how bad it sucks. Enjoy the rifle, I'm sure he will be with you on the next hunt with it. Nice rifle in a great chamberings, enjoy it. My condolences brother!

    Very sorry to hear of your loss.

    My brother-in-law was hunting on my place in MO two years ago. He killed a deer with his dad's old '06.

    As we stood over the deer, we reminisced about hunting with his dad and how special it was that we could hunt with his old rifle (he's been gone 30 years).

    We both ended up crying over that deer, thinking about his dad.

    I hope you will have such a moment with this rifle.

    I think it a high honor for your friend to pass along his rifle to you care.

    I inherited a 1950 Winchester Mdl 70 in 30-06 from an old uncle who horse packed frequently into Williams Cr in CO for elk. I too killed several elk, deer and antelope with it. I now have passed it on to a fine nephew who is looking forward to his first Texas whitetail with it.
    It still groups <3/4" at 100 yards with a load of 165 gr Sierra BTHP ahead of H4350.

    Accurate old guns are wonderful! And I'll bet that Remmy is!

    I'm sorry to hear, the price is high indeed. It's good that your friend's memory will live on through his rifle. I hope the same happens for all of us.

    We met the first week of June, 1990 we were friends immediately. Made a lot of trips together for shooting and hunting. He was a brother to me.

    MS your buddy must have thought highly of the friendship. Charlotte used to say: "A friend is someone that knows all about you and still likes you". You are fortunate to have had such a friend. He will be honored and remembered with every round you put down the barrel. And that's what he wanted, not only for you to have the .300, but to use it and keep it alive thru the years, thereby keeping his memory alive thru you. He must have trusted you completely and that's testament to the man you are.

    My brother took the very same rifle to Namibia, very accurate and worked perfectly. Sorry for the loss of a good friend.
