I plan to get back after the saddle rifle project this summer. There is a new lathe not too awful far away. I am thinking the owner might help me get one together if I bring along my LRKM for him to test drive.
What ya think BnG?
This rifle I feel will be the nutz for a wolf rig. 7mm-300 win, 24 to 26" tube, 8.5 twist and the new 195 Berger with a .795 BC. A light weight narrow forearm stock to slide in and out easily. On top goes a 2.5~10x32 Compact NXS mounted low. Should be pretty bad medicine out to 1000 and will defy the wind pretty good too. I need to get this rifle done.
I am sitting, or laying rather! I've been up all night with sick kids and out all morning looking for but wishing I was chasing mutts!
It really is just as fast to pull a complete rifle out of that pelican, nose to tail your horses and start shooting!
Find a spot to tie up your horse, or hope like hell he stands for a volley of rifle fire. You jerk your iron that you may have an altered zero by kicking the crap out of your scope in the process of horse racing wolves. You dig your bipod out of your backpack or saddle bag, find your rear bag out of your other saddle bag, by now you are panicking! You put all necessary long range shooting accessories
together and start shooting......Oh crap the mutts are out of range.... Repeat PLAN B
I am not the real rooster! The real rooster would just fly over the wolf and drop a grenade!
