    Got to run the ole 300 out to 1475 today really did well hurls the 230 bergers down range with some juice for sure. Here are a couple pics of her in the field...quickly becoming a favorite of mine. In the 3's at 100 and a few more trips out to verify drops and she is going to be really deadly.

    Really nice build - they always look better in their native habitat! What dies are you using, Forster? I've been looking for a 300NM neck die. I've heard Redding used to make one.

    Forrester yep...never seen a redding set but I hear they exist. Lol
    Right now it appears any dies are good dies they are hard to come by.

    NICE! 1.5 inches @ 305 is awesome accuracy. That might put an elk down ;-)
