After a nice wait from it being built, And Carlos breaking it in and playing with it for awhile, And finding out what is good for it, It made it's way home, (and yes I did get it in the house before the wife knew what I was doing).
Here are a couple of pic of it, and the work that Cole did on it looks great, and it feels great, hope to take it out this Sunday and shoot a few down range.


Here is a picture of my 45 cal bullet next to the 416 that this will be shooting.

Glad you finally got it, and got it in the house before the wife got home. I almost kept her. She shoots great and I know you will enjoy it. Yes the bullets are a bit bigger. Very Happy

I have been married for 54 years and my secret was to leave the house with an empty case and return with a new gun in it (NOT REALLY) my wife has never ever said anything about my buying guns We have an agreement I let her buy her jewelry and she lets me buy my guns. That is one good looking rifle I am having one built on a 700 Ml action with a Brux barrel 45 Caliber Rossamn 40 is doing mine. Cole is converting a Buffalo Classic 45-70 for me cutting it down too 28" re-crown and using Lukes breech plug I should be all set for next year Good Lord Willing Lou
