Jess does good work. I am more than tickled with the 30-30 Handi here-bored and turned into a 375X1.8 for me.

If Michigan would drop the 1.8 inch thing on straightwalls, well now that would be nice. My 45/70 would like to go to the woods without having it's brass cut off at the shins.

Hudge,
I've BTDT twice now. Keep your head on a swivel and come home safe. The time goes by faster than you think.

Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem

Dinny,


Thanks for the kind words, but I opted to come here all by myself this time around. I retired in June of last year and accepted a contracting gig over here, and was here 5 weeks after my retirement ceremony from the AF. I guess all the deployments I did while AD wasn't enough, actually I needed a job and a good paying to job to pay some debt off. While I won't be debt free leaving here, I have a lot less. The wife makes good money as well, but we want to be able to put the boys through college and enjoy ourselves as we get a little older. I was home for R&R in January, and it was tougher leaving there that go around then initially coming here. My old AF unit contacted me when I was on my way home in January and asked me to stop by the unit to see them. The civilian we had in the shop while I was there quit and they are rewriting the job description so they can hire me to take her place. I hope all goes well, and I can get the job. Four months out from retiring the AF in all of its wisdom decided they would try and med board me, instead of letting me retire at 21 years. I fought it, but I was not able to do my VA claim, so I have to be home by September to start the process on that. I'm just going to keep my head up and see what path God has for me in store.

Hudge,
I'm fighting against a med board right now. So I'll either be out this summer or two years from this summer when I hit my 20 year mark. I may PM you if I get any indication of a early separation to learn about contracting jobs. I'm a real good medic, my illness hasn't slowed me one little bit. The Army makes up some dumb rules sometimes...

Thanks, Dinny

I just bought a custom shop barrel 38-55 for my TCR rifle from one of the members here and it was made by SSK and they said that it was the 375 bore which I think really makes sense as they could use the same barrel blank for both the 38-55 and also the 375 it also has the 1 in 12 twist

I will own another JES .358 someday; can't decide on the donor. It's between a Sav110 .243 or a 22-250 Tikka T3, both of which shoot great as is.
Ah, dilemma!

That seems to be a very effective bullet diameter.
The late E.N. Woodcock chose the .38-40 as his last and favorite cartridge for deer and bear.
So the .38-55 should knock over moose and such.
