Creeker,

I've got other rifles I like to hunt with but I have to slap my hand away from this one! I've got lots of confidence in the .338 Federal. My hunting buddies started calling me "One Shot Johnny" because of this rifle - and that's a good thing (especially when hunting feral hogs!)

mpolk, who made the stock you used on the Marlin and Weatherby? I like the open grip that they have. My favorite is the Marlin's classic style comb, as I don't like the looks of the Monte Carlo stocks as well.

I hate to admit it, but they are both Boyds stocks that I have put tung oil on for a better finish!

I guess I'll be the first to post an AK...

It's a Rifle Dynamics built Bulgarian AKS-74U in 5.45x39 built on a NDS receiver.

I really like that, very clean lines. I just may need a .308 bolt gun.

Nice pictures guys. I have been leaning towards a lite weight custom bolt rifle in a .260 or something similar like a 6.5 Creedmoor and you are about to convince to have one built.

Keep the pitures coming....
