Welcome. I’ve hunted a few times south of Gibertown AL. Love my friends in AL! How about a first trip to Namibia. Very affordable and great place to get your sons feet wet. All the best.

Welcome aboard Will 416. What other rifles do you currently own? Do you reload?
I do reload. I currently have a Tikka CTR in 6.5 Creedmoor, a Bighorn TL3/proof switch barrel that I put together myself (currently in 300wm), an M40 style 7.62 NATO custom with my own twist put on it, a 20 ga o/u, 12 ga semi auto, several .22s, (3) .38’s, a .357, a .45 XDS, an SKS (7.62x39), and a few others I can’t think of off the top of my head right now.

I currently live in Montgomery during the weekdays for school, but my wife just graduated law school so her and my son just moved back to Andalusia (near the Florida line) for work. I will be traveling home (Andalusia) weekly, now.

I bet you can find some folks on here that would be more than happy to meet you at a range.
That would be great! Maybe try out a 458 lott, 416 Rigby, or maybe even a 416 Rem Mag for comparison. I wouldn’t mind even trying out some nitro expresses, such as the .470. (Not that I can afford one right now, but just to try out.) I would be more than happy to pay for the ammo that I use.

We should put together an AH Alabama Big Bore shoot(y)
I come to Mobile all the time, and a good buddy lives up in Birmingham.

Nelson. Is this message a PM format. I want to send you my email, but don't know if this is the cirrect way to do it. I'm at <pappas@mtaonline.net> Send me an email with your phone and I will call you about a skull I have. I went to school in Boston and am from Bernardston in the west part of the state. Moved to Alaska in 1984 adn never looked back.

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).
