    I can understand all that, I lost my shooting partner to cancer a few years ago and mentor moved to Tennessee when he retired. Just isn't the same. I thought maybe there was a new super cartridge on the horizon.

    Very sorry to hear that. I just lost my gunsmith to cancer on April 18th. That left me real bummed out as he was one of the nicest human beings that I have ever met. I'm sure there are a few guy's on this site that knew him that would say the same thing.

    Sorry to hear that. Lost the gunsmith I have used since we moved here, to heart problems a couple of weeks ago. He was not in good health, he is missed already.

    That's quite the nice RIG if I might say so. I'd be interested in hearing how you achieved the "crazed" look? Dip or Airbrush? Best of luck to your grandson!!!

    It is a combination of paint and filmdip.

    A couple from Robert Gradous, One is a 6x47. The other in a 260. S&B 5X50 on one and a 10x60 March one the other that has since been swapped out for a March 8x80 illuminated. Both are shooters. I just do not have time to shoot them so I will be putting them up for sale in the near future.

    My first custom! Gathered all the parts during the summer. Started with a used Borden Rimrock action that had a Krieger barrel already chambered 6bra, chased down parts across the country, stock from Brunos, scope from ebay, trigger from FL, calls to Borden and anybody else that was willing to help. Let's just say I had things coming at me from all directions. You know the story... mailman asking what you're up to, especially with the heavy boxes of bullets. Shipped half the parts back out to Indiana for a world class bedding job, then it all came together! Thanks to the many experts who offered advice and guided me through the process. I've got 50 rounds through the fire form stage and am thrilled! This is going to be fun!
