You guys were in some wild country for sure. Dandy of a bull. Thanks for sharing the pics. Curious about the gun with the wolf too.

Re: 6x7 British Columbia 2012

It's a 338 Ruger 77 mkII. I had the barrel shortened and fluted, the metal work bead blasted, the action smoothed and trigger set at 2 3/4 lbs. Then I dropped it in a take off from a Ruger Alaskan, topped it with a Zeiss 4 1/2x14x44.
this is how it started


And this is now




Longest kill with it was 475yds.
