    Sorry about the slow response. My daughter got married this past weekend. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    If rifle doesn't sell, then I will probably continue to keep & shoot her. If rifle sells, but buyer doesn't want the bullets, I'll send you an email. Thanks for the interest.

    Normally, I would be interested, but Fiftydriver is currently building me a 6.5-06 AI. I need to raise some cash to get this project done. Thanks for the offer.
