Work of Art is on it's way.

For my 338 Ultra mag build, I sent Joel Russo this hunk of desert ironwood.



And in return Joel is sending me this. It will be here on tuesday my "B" day.
What a present to Me.


And this is going in it after I finish the stock. Broughton 30 in. tube gunsmithed by Jim See with one of his Muscle brakes installed.

Got a lot of work ahead of me.

The blank weighed 15 lbs that I sent to him. Will have to spend more time at the gym to be able to carry it hunting.
I figure the farther it shoots, the less I have to walk.

Taking a shot is just the beginning! That's when all the real hiking starts!

Very good looking stock. Joel does nice work.
Can't wait to see it. Be be sure to post pix when it's finished.

Thanks
Good Shooting
