Look forward to your test results, Buckstix.

Fully agree with those who admire Bailey's creativity. Some years ago he made me a very pretty double rifle in .22 K-hornet that went to Southern Africa and, using 60 gr Nosler partitions, took a small warthog. Gun and hog featured in Bailey's earlier website. He also made a set of .410 barrels for it that I could not shoot at all well, but then while I'm keen on bird hunting, shotguns are not what I'm good at.

After looking over the rising block concept, have sent Bailey a deposit and order for a double in .300 H&H flanged magnum with my own load for the 200 grain Swift A-frame, and an extra set of barrels in 450-400 3 inch that will use Hornady ammunition.

The rifle will be less engraved, maybe just a gemsbok head, and have lesser wood, but I'm looking forward to August 2021 in Namibia, subject to Bailey's finishing schedule.

Regards, Tim

@ Tim Carney.......NICE!!!!! Can’t wait to see the finished project. Congrats on the order. I absolutely love those little round action Bailey Hornet rifles. The thread where he chronicled the building of one of those awesome little creations was one of the best, most memorable threads on this board ever.
