No I dont own it. Ray Romain does. Ph# (814)-265-1948. It called the 300Tomahawk, and increases case capacity( depending on who you ask) by 6-8gr. Personaly I like it and Ray did a good job building it. It is without a doubt the easiest gun to kill deer with, that I have shot. Makes it almost too easy under a thousand.

Actually, I dont really know about this one. It is a LR hunting gun, and is never really shot more then a couple times without cooling, I only have about 200 rounds down it now, but it should be like all the other big magnums, 8-1,200 rounds.
