Considering selling my baby, not sure on a price yet or really what its worth. Open to offers. Trying to see if there's any interest

I can see why that’s your “baby”. I have a “thing” for #1’s. A great chambering. I love the ghost ring sight.
It breaks my heart to consider selling her but I'm trying to be a responsible adult/father/husband and set my family up for success

Love the sights..........doesn't look like the rifle has been used much. Reloading stuff that you have to sell I assume is dies and shell holder?........I bet if you set your price, and describe the extras, you will get some interest in this nice gun.............Best of luck.............FWB

I had someone in a different forum say my price was too high. I told him then he can spend the 1k for a rifle and the 2500 (or more) for the conversion and then all the reloading equipment. I did the same as you, i have one being built in 50-110wcf right now, that was going to be a 500ne until i found this one

That's why I'd have bought yours in a blink. I'm in an almost 1yr queue waiting through a backlog of work and spending that (plus) and not getting the extras.

One thing no one noticed and mentioned. This gun was built by SSK industries, most likely by Brian or JD there.
They have built everyone of my B&M rifles (3 of them) and the .50 B&M I have for sale on these forums. They do excellent work. Here is the stamp on one of my rifles.

Selling rifles are about the same as selling a member of the family- so heartrending. In forty years I've only sold a few, but I remember the look on each one's face as they were taken away to a new home. So I avoid doing so at all costs.
As do i in most situations, but this money would go to purchasing land for my family and to pass along to my son. Things i didnt and wont have from my parents. I'm still rather young myself, as far as looking at things that way, but i want to set myself and my family up for success early or to recover should something happen

There are 10's of millions of men who need to take a lesson from you.

The dividends paid from responsible actions are incalculable. (y)(y)(y)

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Wow, great response regarding the title of a thread and an amazing site.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
