    what bullet?

    My youngest son and I both have 338 Norma's, and we both use 300 grain Berger Hunter Elite bullets. They are SUPER accurate, and easy to tune. My pet load is 97.0 grains of Reloder 33 and get 2770 fps. Both rifles are 1000 grouse guns. Just kidding, but they are THAT accurate.

    Annealing Services vs Buying an Annealer

    Joe at Shooter's Bench in Boise, actually he's moving to Nampa, bought an AMP Annealer, and charges 15 cents per case. I found out about his service the day before I planned to buy an AMP. 200 cases for $30.

    I will not be getting 'the vaccine'...

    It's been a week today, since I got my second Moderna shot. No side affects at all. I hope you will all be happy with your decisions.

    I will not be getting 'the vaccine'...

    During the Viet Nam war I was a C-141 pilot traveling all over the world. We had to be vaccinated for everything to be world-wide qualified. Probably nobody hates shots as much as I do, but my shot record looked like the Encyclopedia Britanica. I have never had a problem with vaccinations...

    Recoil solution

    I would strongly recommend the Titanium Beast brake from Muzzle Brakes and More. I have them on several 300 RUMs and they tame them to about the recoil of a 7mm/08. Best I've found!
