With the lack of published data I thought this might be helpful.

Fortunately we have a judge in Fremont County that takes poaching seriously.  Thank you Rob Denhardt.

When all this is over, I for one will avoid buying anything with a made in China logo.  With my age and underlying health problems, it may not be that long.

Rifles / Conundrum.
« on: March 21, 2020, 12:54:19 PM »
I am having a bit of problem.  A few years ago I took a 700 Rem to my gunsmith and asked him to blueprint the action, screw on a good barrel and chamber it for a wildcat 6.5 X .280 AI.  While the rifle shoots as well as I could expect, It just didn't quite come up to my expectations.  It has a 24" Douglas bbl with a 1 in 8 twist.  I'm wondering if I should have it rechambered for the Wby 6.5 RPM.  While the gain in velocity will not be dramatic, it would have the advantage of a factory chambering as well as the advantage of factory ammo.

If anyone wants to know what happened to Cabelas they should watch the re-run of Tucker Carlson on Fox later tonight.
