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

I-will-hook-it-up-soon.-Thanks-for-bearing-with
my-typing.

30-378-Weatherby-Magnum;-however;-I've-decided-to-go-with
a-300-WSM-instead.-I-ve-decide-I-want-to-shoot-the-lighter

Ballistic-Tip.-This-rifle-will-be-strictly-used-for-100-to

the-110grn-V-Max-and-the-125grn-Ballistic-Tip;-so-I-am-thinking-a-1-14-twist-will-work-best-for-the-110-and-125grn
bullets.-I-would-like-to-here-what-you-guys-think-regarding-
twist-rate.-Will-a-1-10-twist-work-for-those-bullets-or-would-the-1-14-twist-work-best.-Once-again-here-the-specs;

-So-if-I-can't-use-it;-I-will-be-selling-it.

I-have-read-that-the-300-WSM-with-a-.333-tight-neck-chamber

the-125grn-Ballistic-Tip-at-4025-fps-and-it-shot-a-.162-6-
shot-group-at-100-yards;-that-is-awesome.-My-gunsmith-talked-to-me-about-this-chambering-too;-so-I-decided-
to-do-some-reserch-and-I-decided-this-is-the-way-I-want
to-go.-I-love-the-poly-tipped-bullets;-they-blow-the
varmints-up.-I-know-the-VLD-bullets-are-the-best-for
long-range-shooting;-but-they-don't-produce-the-expolsive
power-that-the-poly-tiped-bullets-produce.-Like-I-said
I-will-only-be-shooting-out-to-1000-yrads;-so-this-rig-
will-be-perect.-A-125grn-Ballistic-Tip-traveling-at-4025-fps
is-going-to-produce-some-awesome-RED-MIST-shows.

Also;-the-recoil-will-be-light-do-to-the-weight-of-the-rifle;-muzzle-brake;and-light-bullets-and-that-will-allow
me-to-watch-the-hits.-I-think-this-is-going-to-be-a-great
varmint-rig-with-lots-of-power;-great-brass;-and-tremendous
accuracy.-I-can't-wait-to-use-it.
