    It didn't happen, if there are no pictures...

    Here’s one I just had to buy in .357 Max. Rebored from .223 Remington. A bit overkill for a .223.

    I know Elmer tested one in 45/70 back in the 70’s and he was impressed with it!

    Yes. I have one that was originally a 300 WM. I had John Taylor rebarrel it with a takeoff Badger BPCR barrel and rechamber it to 40-50 SBN.
    Only drawback, is it doesnt have a tang,and I forgot to have John add one so I'm gonna have to attach the back of the tang sight to the wood for now.
    The stock doesn't have enough drop and it is hard to shoot close range with a tang sight.

    Mine looked just like yours Newtire !!

    (didn't realize this was an old thread but still relevant !!)
