    That wouldn't be a bad idea. It appears half of the threads were removed, leaving little for that vent to hang on to.

    My revolver and rifle prefer different loads. You can shoot the same load in both, but working up what works best for each gun is the best route.

    That's a gawdawful countersink he cut for the vent liner. You get what you pay for! The general opinion of most other builders is, Jackie can take $700 worth of parts, and make you a fine $300 gun.

    We've got a lot of griz and black bear activity here, too. Friend wants me to go shoot one out of his apple trees. Problem is, they only come at night, and I don't need the hassle of accidentally killing a griz.

    If the finish is completely cured, you will leave no steel wool particles in the finish. I finished a lot of very expensive exhibition grade stocks with steel wool where such a blemish would be disaster. Never a problem.

    I use some Bullplate Lube on the mold. Careful application with a Q tip. Keep it out of the cavity. I think synthetic chainsaw 2 cycle oil is the same thing.

    If you didn't start out with well seasoned wood to make a stock, you may as well figure on starting over. An uncured stock will warp, twist, and do all kinds of nasty things if you expect the rifle to group. If you used Truoil too heavily, it...

    The rosewood definitely will cause respiratory problems in most people. It chokes me up quickly, and the effects last a long time. Rifle builder John King is allergic to walnut, which makes his job a lot harder!

    Keep in mind. ROSEWOOD IS POISONOUS! Cut in a well ventilated area, always wear a good dust mask when working it.

    I found that elk generally die faster with a slow heavy bullet, than with high velocity rounds.

    FYI, of you shoot an animal at that velocity, you are going to destroy a lot of meat, and it won't kill as effective as a slower bullet.
