Mike, kind of heresy but have you considered the skirted (not saboted) 50s for ML. They come in all kinds of weights in the range you are looking for and can use heavy loads of black.

To check your rifling twist, you could push a tight fitting oiled patch through the bore on a wooden dowel rod. You would put a pencil line on the rod at 12:00, and then push it through with a live center from a small lathe. The live center will permit the dowel rod to rotate along with the rifling. If the length of your bore from end of chamber to muzzle is 25", and the index mark on the dowel rod rotated one full turn, that would indicate a 1 in 25" rate of twist. Half a turn over the same distance would indicate a 1 in 50" rate of twist.

You could also mark the rod at the point where you started pushing at the beginning of the rifling, and then mark the point where it made one full turn, and then measure the distance between those two marks.

Keith that's the way that I tried but because of the very shallow round bottom grooves it skips. Even with a very tight fit.

Took it out for a very quick 2 shots at 50yds. Happy with a 2" group to start with.

Congrats on your new find. It always makes me smile to see the targets on big bores...no spotting scope is necessary! Now that you have it in hand, what are your thoughts on the stock?

What's your general location in Alaska? I lived there for about 10 years in Palmer and above the Arctic Circle. Worked all over the state.

I live in Sterling. I've already refinished the stock but can't upload photos to my photo storage site anymore.
