    I need to see if there is a scope ring that is lower than these but not as low as the ones I had on the scope before. They put the scope exactly where I wanted it but the bolt then contacted the scope rather firmly.
    I'm filled with anticipation for a range trip.

    Yes, I was noticing that the rings were maybe 1/4" higher than APPEAR to be needed, but
    I am not there and was not going to say anything. Just because the front bell of the scope
    clears by 1/4 inch "too much", doesn't mean that the bolt handle does too. Not going to hurt
    anything at all.

    Best of luck at the range. You already have the beauty contest won, now you have to
    prove that it (she?) can shoot as good as it looks.

    Bill, I used Tru-Oil on it. I've come to like it, due to easy touch up. Much less labor intensive than the finish I used to use. I think I used around 12 coats on this project, rubbing them out between applications.

    Chris, yes I can.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    I've used Watco Danish Oil recently and been quite pleased with it. I think I used Tru-Oil on some
    Carcano stocks about 40 yrs ago - got good results - well, as good as any Carcano stock
    could look, but it is long enough that I may have it wrong.

    Yours sure looks great.

    I ordered a lower set of rings. Maybe they'll position the scope just a bit lower without it having any contact with the bolt.
    I'm anxious for a range trip.

    I packed up the rifle and some ammo and hope to get to the range tomorrow morning.

    A couple pictures of the current project. Lynn sent me pictures of another rifle she wanted me to duplicate as close as I could. I hope I came close!

    This one came out very nice. Thanks Ric!
    It's exceptionally pretty as well. I hope to get it to the range in the next few months.

    Thank you. Rummage deep enough on the forum, you will find flint rifles, fowlers, trade guns, Mannlicher, and other Mausers I've done.

    = Also John Reese, at Custom Diamonds, in Polson Mt. for the checkering,
    I can +1 John Reese. I have used him at least half a dozen times on everything from re-cuts to custom jobs. John Reese at Custom Diamonds is great, and you will be shocked at how affordable prices are for basic jobs.

    I love to see work by a man who understands proper proportions for a rifle. What a nice classic piece. Nice wood too.

    Hi Joni/Waksupi. I have a custom 280 Ackley. It is the most accurate rifle I own outside of a 220 swift.

    Every rifle is different of cource but mine really likes Reloader 19/21 depending on bullit weight. Give it a go, I think you might be pleasently surprised.
