My first custom, done at last

wlfdg,
Heck yes I'm going to carry her all over hill and dale. Those cries you will hear will be from from me scraping up my stock. I did everything I could do seal the stock and prevent moisture from warping the stock. Plus the barrel is free floated and all the metal is teflon coated. I'm finally finished working on the road in Texas, heading home to Colorado tomorrow and hopefully within the next two weeks you will see me posing with that gun and either elk or deer. My other custom that I was hoping to have finished by elk season is my .358 Norma Mag, but I'm not sure that can happen with only a few days left. She's not as pretty, all business.
There's no such thing as too pretty for hunting! I think she adds to the hunt, I think I will derive as much, if not more satisfaction from using that gun as I have from any nearly any other successful hunt. A gun you have an emotional attachment to increases your satisfaction during a hunt. Guns are not mere tools to me, and I doubt they are to most people around here. All guns are special in their own right, but this one holds a major place in my heart.

Thanks, that's because I've heard you do not try to speak in English. You start from laughter. I write with the help of the translator of google jejeje.

A greeting,

Oscar.

Nice rifle!

Thanks for posting. My google for some info on my .264 turned up this wonderful site. Lots of good reading to keep me occupied until hunting season.

Well since you guys dug up my .264, I may as well show her off with some of what she killed last year. I'm sure I've posted these same photos on here before. I took a smallish 7x7, and a cow here in Colorado, plus a whitetail doe in Maine on my buddy's first deer hunt. We've got a quite a few more dates scheduled this year.


I didn't put the gun in the picture with the cow, but that won't happen again.

Oh yeah and those 140 grain Nosler Partitions do a bit of damage on deer. I finally got a chronograph, they're going 3175 fps.

What load and powder are you using to get 3175 with the 140? I use 64.5 of h4831 and a 140 berger vld to get 3050 any other loads that go up to 3100 or higher show signs of pressure.
