    So we have the rifle... Now we just need to draw a T-Rex tag.

    Looks cool but beyond range chuckles I don't really see an application?

    Ha, I am thinking that would make that 200 yd metal plate "spin" at Pauls.

    One hell of a come up though for the 760 hostag/ head shot though.

    The action has rear lugs?? and they had to close the action slowly??! Wonder what that was, it might go off if you closed the bolt quickly??

    Not a good setup for that quick follow up on T-REX. But you could drop it on his foot and take him out!!

    I would like to see what it would do to a whitetail.

    Won't do any more to a whitetail, even with a soft point than a 12 ga slug. Not as much as a 300 RUM. You can only kill a deer so dead. But I would like to see what it would do with a TSX or North fork soft on a cape Buffalo. Even that might not be much more than 375 RUM with 300 TSX. Bullet placement is still more critical.
