Hey folks! Geo. Newbern reminded me that it's that time of year again. Thanks Geo. for the reminder.

Anyway, as in years past, this thread is to show off your guns, game, dogs and yourself for this season. So let's see all those great pictures again. Looking forward to seeing them!

I do have one request. Please keep this thread on track. Please, no personal attacks or sarcastic comments to those who post in good faith.

I hope everyone has a successful year and most of all a safe one!

See you later right here.

Best,

Greg

If that is @ 100yds, probably the most accurate .458 in the world. Tell us more about gun and load.

Hi John, Thanks for asking.
That is a 50 yard group my son shot from a bench rest. It is from the right barrel of my .45-70 DR that has 26 inch barrels. The left barrel is also accurate but he was shooting different targets AND had two bullets in the same hole + a flyer.
Gun is a Beretta GR-2 12 ga converted to .45-70 DR by a man that made it for himself and hunted deer with it for 10 years before he passed away from a heart attack while dragging a buck to his truck.
He also made my .405 WCF DR and so I bought the .45-70 from his estate.
100 rounds of loaded 300 grain ammo came with the rifle and it has proven to be accurate and deadly:


I like to break in new guns on hog. smile

crs, I would love to see more of that rifle at it's loads. Did he follow from Ellis Browns's book in doing it? I have been sorely tempted to go that route one day. But I'd use a 16 I think.

Brent,
A couple of pix of Beretta and then a link to a thread on this rifle in the gun making forum over on Nitro Express. Enjoy.

Gun made by Robert "Bob" Hynden of Iowa. He did have Ellis Browns books and several others as ell as interaction with other gun makers on the Nitro Express forum.

I have heard of Hynden several times, but never met him. Really nice rifle.

crs, looks like you delivered on the promise! Garcia's companions would be pleased. You got it done. And with a very nice set up I must say. I have Ellis Brown's book and while I would never attempt the work myself, I found it a fascinating read.

Canvasback,
Same here WRT Ellis's book. BTW, he is a crack shot on running hogs with a sxs rifle. He is also making a DR right now that will be in the next version of his book. He says the entire project will be documented in the book. I have already placed my order.
