I got to our rock busting spot yesterday afternoon with the 4 big game rigs and ammo to find I had forgotten my Geovids at home (cant believe how lost I am without them!) So while I was waiting for my spotter to show up with his 1600 Leica I figured I'd run a few bolts throught the xbow #$%! I forgot the dang cocking rope!!
While I was trying to get the xbow cocked by hand a couple came by and asked if I was going to be shooting into the valley. The guy was obviosly military and looked at me a little funny when I told him we where going to be shooting at the rocks on the other hilside some 500-1500 yards away......Untill I set the 338EDGE and 7WSM on the hood of the truck
As it turned out my jerry-rigging the Savage 7WSM together isnt working too well, seams you can bore out a .473 to .534 but that doent give you enough clearance for the oversized Winchester brass AND the extractor hole is in the wrong place. Looks like I may have to actually spend the $$ and do it right :-(
It aint easy being old,cripped,blind,deaf and cheap
