    So we have the rifle... Now we just need to draw a T-Rex tag.

    Looks cool but beyond range chuckles I don't really see an application?

    The action has rear lugs?? and they had to close the action slowly??! Wonder what that was, it might go off if you closed the bolt quickly??

    Not a good setup for that quick follow up on T-REX. But you could drop it on his foot and take him out!!

    I would like to see what it would do to a whitetail.

    Won't do any more to a whitetail, even with a soft point than a 12 ga slug. Not as much as a 300 RUM. You can only kill a deer so dead. But I would like to see what it would do with a TSX or North fork soft on a cape Buffalo. Even that might not be much more than 375 RUM with 300 TSX. Bullet placement is still more critical.

    I do understand that this is completely useless as far as what you "need" but it certainly helps entertain the rest of the range..... OUCH OUCH OUCH, I would flinch the next 400 rounds through my 10/22

    I wonder what kind of groups they were shooting. What's the BC on those boogers? Anyways, nothing I would want to shoot.
