    Big congratulations your way for the nice looking rifle, and the tremendous looking song dog. Yep, pretty big hole in the hide. I don't know what a hide is worth these days. Probably not much. Great shot anyway. Good way to draw first blood.

    I too have a soft place in my heart for the great 7mm Mauser. I have a sporter that has an adjustable drop-in trigger with Remington style side safety, what I call a jeweled bolt, commercial bolt shroud on the rear of the bolt, and a walnut stock...

    All I can say is THIS IS BEYOND AWESOME! I agree with the above posts about your chosen platform. I like it and am anxious as is everyone else as to how it performs. Love the photo shot from the rear of the cylinder showing the loaded rounds.
