Search for the "allen mag shooters group" or "Kirby you need a website"

That should wet your whistle for a while.

Here:

KIRBY---> You need a website .?

If you had read to page 39 you would have found this one too.

I'll warn you now, up front, be careful what you read and who you talk to about the Allen Magnums.;) You will hear what they are, how good they work and what a quality guy Kirby is, and.......it'll cost you dearly because you'll end up wanting one.

TMR has the same thing (7mm AM) that I do and they are fantastic loooong range hammers.
