Greetings from South Carolina
Older than Dirt, be 70 next click and shutting down fast. Been lurking since Jan of 09 as I completed my upgrade from 1959 Win .270 Mod 70 F/W (after 45 years of hand loading as my kill anything in North America) to a Tikka T-3 SS Lite_338 WM._story later. When old-timers kicks in, I may invent words or misspell to better paint a picture, for more accurate communications, please forgive. LOL

My Top 5 RULES TO LIVE BY:
This site has been great. Most ALL my questions have been asked before, so I just searched for my answers. Thanks to the Mgt. and many long respected contributors I was able to SAFELY get “Nellie” up to 3,000fps with my new 225gr MRXs for the 2009 ELK season. She's close enough for Gov. work with my ONE load, but I will -as health, time and money allow- try to find the ONE She likes best so when I pass Her on, the work will already be done! I still have work to do! Thanks again Len and the others for such a VALUABLE site.
OH, every year since 1994 archery season I/We-2 Sons- have been to the Weminuche Wilderness, San Juan National Forest for Elk season (½ the time I go solo). Used big guns since about 2000.
Score: Us 3 - ELK 1.....but my BIG BOY was the 1 that got up and walked away in 08....!@#$@#$^%$&^&(*)&*%$... = UPGRADE!
- If~n MAMA ain't happy – ain't nobody happy.
- Do it right the 1st time.....it's cost effective.
- You don't want to die cause you were stupid!
- Hunt above the road!
- When in doubt....refer to RULE number one.
Son, The first shot is the important one - the others just make him run faster! Grandpa 1949
