    Really nice rig. It isn't often you find one that shoots as good as it looks.

    It's nice to see a rifle with that much history. Looks like you could pick it up and go after whatever you want whenever you want.

    Nice looking rigg! 8mm's are great for all kinds of big game hunting! Their terminal performance is outstanding. I love them but it looks like they aren't that popular in the USA. People on this site were complaining about the lack of good 8 mm bullets for long range... maybe some producers are willing to fill the gap?!

    I agree, I wouldn't hesitate to build one of the 8mm's that I designed if I could get high BC long-range capable 8mm bullets.

    We might need to revive the 7mm & 8mm threads.....What do you think?
