Does anyone have any experience with these? I am considering buying one, but I thought I would see what people have to say. Thank you

I have one on my 416 Rigby. I love the strap. Nice and wide. Non slip. I carried the gun around the Save valley for 10 d and more than 50 miles in the summer of 2019 in search of a Buffalo .

I’ve got three. Best sling on the market IMO. I leave them with PH’s as gifts and they love them. Buy his sling swivels too. They are milled steel and the best swivels I have come across.

I prefer the Els & Co. that I got from African Sporting Creations.

I have both (actually a Rigby by Els & Co). They are very similar but I give the edge to Trader Keith because of the rubber woven into the strap. I find it really does make a difference in keeping thawing on your shoulder. Quality of construction and materials are of the highest standard in both.

That was the thing I liked about the Trader Keith as well.

Exactly. The rubber threads make all the difference in keeping the canvas from sliding on the shoulder. Great product.

I considered getting the Trader Keith Strap a year ago.
And I agree with others here that it is a quality piece of kit.
You will not be disappointed in it.

This is the Dick Murray A-1 Quick Set Rifle Sling.

I prefer leather and this sling is as quiet as they come.
I've had it for almost a year now and it sees weekly use.
High quality product and Dick was great to work with.
Stays on my shoulder with no problems.

I love these slings by Murray Leather. High quality and Mr. Murray is great to work with! These are on all of my other rifles.

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).
