    Andy, Thank you for your generosity, but wgg already sent me one, and it fit just as original! While I wouldn't mind having a backup, I would rather see it go to someone who needs it. Maybe someone will see it in this thread! Thanks again!! ...

    If it were me I would look at the 155 grain boatail match grade bullet. The standard bullets in that rifle were 145-150 grain range. The use of 165-175 grain bullets by snipers seems like to much bullet for normal use. Remember snipers had different...

    I have to add that I think it depends a lot on the tenacity of the individual animal. Shot one thru the chest and it took out a lung and 1/2 of the rib cage. It was found the next day by another castboolit forum member. Quite always from where I...
