He sold it long ago if I remember correctly. I think Bill Bailey bought it just to resell it as he got it for a very low price. Again, that was a long time ago, just going off memory here.

    OMG!!!!
    This is too funny.........
    Hope Wildcat is doing OK, has a job and building some new guns.
    BUT, I just can't resist-----LOL

    Hey-guys;-I-am-building-a-new-Long-range-rifle.
    I-am-trying-to-decide-on-which-round-to-go-with.
    I-am-trying-to-decide-between-the-30-378-Weatherby-Mag
    or-the-30-338-Lapua-Mag.
    The-30-378-Weatherby-Mag-is-what-I-am-leaning-towards.
    The-30-378-holds-more-powder-which-will-allow-for-higher
    velocities.
    I-wont-have-to-neck-it-down-because-Norma-makes-the-brass
    I-am-also-leaning-towards-a-tight-chambered-30-378-Wthby-Mag.-It-would-have-a-.338-neck-diameter.
    I-am-also-considering-the-30-338-Lapua-Mag.
    Can-you-guys-give-me-suggestions-and-your-thoughts
    on-which-round-to-go-with.

    Thanks
    Wildcat
