    I know little to nothing about famous gunsmiths, but still must congratulate you on a good find!

    Lovely! I collect and shoot muzzle-loading arms...including originals. These older guns have personality that the new guns lack.

    I believe in this case it might be justifiable.

    That is a beauty of a rifle. I am a fan of those old generation guys.

    One big thing Shop Monkey and I were taught in school was that a properly built rifle will shoot well no matter what ammo is put in it. His Bergara 300Win mag and my Sako A7 300 win mag are both that way. Both shoot sub 1" at 100yds with any kind of decent factory ammo. Then i handload for them to get the best possible accuracy. I will be taking this rifle out hopefully next weekend to see what it will do at 100yds then go from there.

    Hi Paul, I am very interested to read about your accuracy results with this treasure of a rifle. Cheers,
