Re: Nickname for your baby rifle

The guys that I hunt with, having never seen anything like my rifle, started calling it the Howitzer. It might just stick.

Nickname for your baby rifle

I'm just curious if any of you have a nickname for your rifle(s).

I'm going to call my LR rifle:
"338 Lapuaallthewaaay" [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Nickname for your baby rifle

I have been working on names for my rifles. So far I have named three of them:

Mister T [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
Junior [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Nickname for your baby rifle

A shop that goes by the name of Bear Arms in Jackson SC run by a gent named Steve Branham built my two custom rifles. A Rem 700 in 308 and a Rem mdl 7 in 6mm BR, Therefore the names of Big Bear and Little Bear seem most appropiate.
I have a stock 700 in 308, except for the addition of a used varmint special barrel in 308 and trimmed to 20" for my general deer hunting. I named it Ribcage but my son renamed it to Black Death.

Re: Nickname for your baby rifle

I have a custom shop weatherby called the "Wonderby"


I shot this impala with Swift Aframes and didn't hit shoulder bone, only lung (yes the bonded bullets expand and form a very smooth front surface) so a prolonged gunfight followed.
