Gives you a feeling of how much you’ll appreciate the finished job. And of course, the amount of time that goes into a project.

Thats awesome! Paul's work is exquisite. Was that your 416 Taylor I saw on the work board last week? :DAnd, not being in Ontario is ok because their town is gorgeous! It makes a great pilgrimage:

No not mine but could be my buddy Steve's. Christian is building Steve's 416 on a Mauser action, he finished my work in September of 2016.

416 Taylor is a very cool cartridge. Do you mind sharing some pictures of the work Paul and Christian did?

No, I don't mind at all. I will have to take a few pics though, as I have not taken any pictures of that rifle!

Just a few pics of the 416 Taylor. Paul did the engraving on the front site and the rings. The rifle was built by Hugh McIssac from Simcoe, ON.
