maybe

I'll work on pics on Pap's rifle. It is not really pretty. It was my sole highpower for about 20 years, after my Dad hunted it, and after Pap carried it a few seasons. But it is not abused....and it is much loved. I have the shipping box dated 1956.

I've posted a story before about being a kid at "deer camp"...in his dining room w/ kerosene lantern and that rifle.

Wears the same 70's era Bushnell that my Dad put on it for me at age 14. With it I likely made the longest shot on a whitetail I ever will, not exceptional at 225 paced, but long for the way I hunt. It has killed deer in 3 states.

It will shoot. Factory WW 150 Power Points did well, as did my reloads with 150 Sierra Pro Hunters. Maybe bamaboy can help with pics.
