    I believe Jack might be the name.
    We never met by ive heard about you from Lowell.
    He recently moved to a new place in Lititz, sort of a retirement type place where they do all the maintenance. It has a walkout basement with a very long view, so he can just wheel the big glass outside and check them out. Same phone number.
    He still finds a way to crawl up to that lookout near Letonia, and they have been doing quite well. #1 hall of famer and i had dinner in the Black Forest Inn on the first day year before last season. The place was empty, I’m sure you could have picked the room you wanted. Lowell was the only one staying at the Slate run Hotel. Yet their bitching about no ARs or Sunday hunting.

    You're correct on a couple of counts; Weatherby is selling 6.5 brass, and the 6.5 Wby is a death ray.

    Caveman ,,, one of my very first wildcats was a 7mm/300 WBY and it was a very good hunting cartridge, so I think the 6.5/300 WBY wildcat would be similar ,,,, good 130-140gr hunting bullet ought to just knock the snot out of the overrated 6.5 Creedmore ,,,
