Re: My little cannon

Nice CAM,

Replace the RE25 load with slightly more MRP and see increased speed and lower pressures.

Others may have already tried it in the 30/378 and can give loadings.

Re: My little cannon

I guess you could say that it's a nice gun.

That is if you are into brand new guns with $1200 actions and scopes and if you like having a cartridge that makes the normal hunting round look like a shot glass on a table full of pitchers.

And I suppose that it's cool that you are doing some of the stock work yourself if you are the kind of person that thinks craftmanship and patience are good qualities to have, as opposed to, say, the "I want it now and I want it cheap" way of thinking.

If you look at it like that then it's cool I suppose. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

(Nice gun !)

BTW I notice that you are a lefty. Were you born in June?

Re: My little cannon

Yep It was a compliment. My hunting buddy used to say stuff like that when we would see someone with a nice boat or truck. "I guess it's a nice truck if you're into $40,000 rigs that shine and sparkle and if you like having girls in bikinis hanging all over your truck all the time."

Kinda like that. I suppose it could lose something when read as opposed to being heard.

So how much does the gun weigh and how long is the bbl?

I read once that more lefties were born in june than any other month so I figured I would ask. I was a june baby and a lefty but due to a car wreck I had to learn to write right handed. I can still use my left hand but I'm lacking the fine motor skills to write well and the loss of feeling and some strength in the left hand means I can only shoot most guns right handed.

No guns found Geocaching. I backed off quite a bit on the geocaching since they did away with the rank website. I was approaching being in the top 25 for idaho and then they dumped the site.

I'm in the Boise area.

I don't have any word on the lefty guns. Never bought one. Always shot right handed on long guns.

Re: My little cannon

CAM, just reread my reply to you. I almost messed up. I meant use MRP II and go up from RE25 loadings, not MRP!!!
