...interesting on 32 & 327 projects! Like idea of that cool caliber in 97. On my list for certain, thinking 5.5 inch'ish at this point in time but that could change.
Thanks on 454 - attached is more of a dress up ''Ready for 4th of July, Go-To-Meetin'' image that working on. You can tell I am already thinkin about summer. Lol. Last weekend finished off some old Herco loads that were not my favorite, but sure had fun! Will load up some 4227 loads tonite or tomorrow night I think but always trying different things.
Speaking of warmer months, a friend called this morning hoping to secure a biology project/study coming up, thru his work maybe in Fall or earlier. The idea is to head to Greys River or Salt River range areas, perhaps another range nearby - as this is another hobby of mine .... that we have both worked on over the years, in that general region before. Normally a ways further North.
May drop off another FA though dont mind shipping if needed, but since there...
Thinking another extra 45 cylinder on a different gun for factory target use yet will still hunt deer with the 454 at probably 44 mag low to high end velocites depending on bullet weight, in both scoped and short bbl guns. Can use heavier bullets with 454 more easily than 44mag, for me handloading for hunting offers about 15 to 25 lbs of recoil or less (if needed) instead of near 38lb's at max 454 factory loads, which am still fine to use and do enjoy it.
Lets see, have a few extra alluminum rear sight bases, so experimenting with finish on underside of one them, with stuff I have around here. Waiting on mail, for some FA items already ordered.
