    Are you going to the North Store, South Store, or somewhere else? I have no idea what is at either store but the CMP web site has a forum for each store and there is usually an inventory report so you have an idea what’s there.

    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...

    I've used two of the round tray LEEs since they came out. When LEE discontinued them I bought three more just in case. Make sure to lube them and they last almost forever. I'll bet you couldn't make them fast enough if the price was right.

    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!

    I have never heard of doing this and wouldn’t recommend it. Old logs that have sunk in lakes and rivers are recovered and sold for big bucks. I think it’s mostly because they are old growth logs.
