Dang Mike
Those are very nice. They should love it.

No Elk tag but that was not expected.
But I did draw my bear tag. Baiting is allowed Aug 8th fir the Sept 9th opener.
I hope to make my first kill with a Weatherby
I will use my 300 Mark V SS with 180 gr Trophy Bonded Tip Bear Claws.

Congrats Zonie and good luck. Let us know what you decide on using for Elk .

Double Congratulations Tom !!

I got one just yesterday and several this week

Thanks All for the kind words. It has led to another sale.
With brass being so hard to get I don't think I will be building any more than the original 20. So when there gone there gone.
Thank you

I think if the safe is hosed down with cold water you could open it in minutes.
I run my preasure cooker under the faucet for 10 seconds and you can open the lid.  I'm not buying you can't open a safe for hour's.

2 things I have been told about gun safe claims. In case of fire many fall thru to the basement.
And theifs targeting your guns. Use a grinding wheel and buzz thru the side of the safe.
But I know when my safe dial had a problem I called a lock and safe guy. He shut the door so I couldn't see him. And had that thing open in seconds.
I agree that the best fire protection is the way to go.
A good thief will make short work of them being locked up.

Geeze BB3 He is A Tank Good luck. Hope you get him.

I favor those same two bullets weights too.  I did switch to 150 gr. Accubonds in the 7mm  :'(Rem Mag once I found them. In my rifles my 300 wby mag will push a 180 gr accubond at 3260 fps and my 7mm Rem Mag pushes the 160 gr accubond at 2900 fps . That's a huge difference.
So I have been sticking with the 150 out of the 7mm mag and limiting its uses to deer sized game on down. And will go to the 300 for larger game.
Side note I did kill 2 Caribou with the 7mm rem mag with 169 gr. Nosler Partition gold.  And they worked great.

That 3 year old must have had a good food source.  I shot a 4 year old in the U.P. of MI
And he weighed 210 dressed. But there are no crops of any kind up there alot of choke cherries
But not much else.
