Re: The first twin arrived ;-)

Thanks for the kind offer. Lets keep in touch as I'd be happy to make the drive to get a look at that rifle. I'm basically in the denver area so the drive isn't that far at all. I'd love to get a peak at your rifles in person. You've got some really nice rifles. I hope to have a collection like that some day. Thanks for the offer and please email or pm me when you have set plans for that area and I can figure out where to meet you. Thanks again Ric

Re: The first twin arrived ;-)

i was wondering how long the barrels are on you twins..
i can only find a pic of one of the twins.. are they identical or is one lighter than the other... i have a 28" krieger chambered in 7WSM ; i am thinking of cutting it down to make it a little handier...just dont know how much i can cut off and still get magnum velocities???
great looking sticks by the way...

The twins are identcle... I have a pic of them both if ya wanna see it..

the barrels are 24" they are Broughtons and they tend to be faster then some other brands... I think it is because they are a 5C which is basicay a groove opposite of a land so there isn't as much "squeeze " on the bullets

I get 2950 fps from a 162 gr bullet and 2830 fps from a 175 gr
