    P38 Buck

    Super buck. Congratulations.
  5. Clamp-ons have proven quite effective for me and several shooting friends. It would be great if all rifles came with brake/suppressor threading, but sadly this isn't so. Clamp on brakes are about the only option if you have a rifle with typical inadequate barrel muzzle thickness (this is a very common problem on factory rifles), because threading a typically overly thin factory barrel muzzle may likely induce structural failure, something best avoided. Another feature is that you can remove it easily, if needed. There is a lot of info on the web for suggested barrel muzzle minimum thickness, so you may want to look at this.

    Wyoming Archery Antelope Semi Live Hunt

    Big Browns, The very best of luck to you on your upcoming hunt. I'll be heading up to Wyoming also, but for an October rifle hunt for an antelope buck and doe.

    Shoulder dents?

    Some of my cases, in Redding dies, would dent with just a tiny bit too much liquid lube. When I switched to a dry graphite dry lube the problem was eliminated. Just a suggestion.

    Wyoming Adventure

    I've got three preference points for WY antelope this year, and am thinking of an antelope buck and doe hunt. Toss up between a trespass permit hunt or fully guided hunt at this time. Had a great 2015 buck and doe hunt and anxious to get back to a great antelope state. Nice work on your antelope!

    New Years at Canyon de Chelly

    Absolutely fascinating view for those of us not native to Arizona. Quite a dichotomy for us. Thanks.

    2018 trip to Europe, photo heavy

    Many times, when taking photos of unique places, I remembered your CWT posts and thought of what you could do with the wonderful ongoing tapestries around the world. The feeling contained in your images of nature and the 'States embody both art and natural beauty.
  13. Rummaging through this year’s photos and came across this year's Europe photos. We spent bit of time in Europe this year, so here are just a few photos of the sights and towns we took in for those interested. First stop was in L’Isle-sur-la-sorgue, Fr which was a fortified town in the 12th century. It is known for it’s labyrinth of river canals, which provided mill power for industry. Gordes, Fr is a fortressed town in the Luberon Mountains, near the Rhone River in southern France. Abbey Notre-Dame de Senanque, Fr, a monastery built in the 11th century, also in the Luberon Hills near Gordes. Rousillion, Fr, once capitol of the ochre dye industry, in Provence, now a quiet hillside town. Oppede le Vieux, Fr, home to a medieval castle and the papacy in the 13th century. Once abandoned, but now making a comeback as buildings are being restored. Cochem, De, situated on the Moselle River, was first settled during the Celtic and Roman epochs. It became a town in 1332 and put up its fortifications then. Cochem is now in the Moselle River’s wine growing area, known for its white wines. It is home to Cochem Castle. This area is a famous wine growing area in Germany. It is also a much more quaint and less busy area than the Rhine. Beilstein, De, just a short distance up the Moselle River by ferry, was first settled in 800 AD. It’s castle history turned with the French forces overrunning it, and in 1794 the French Revolutionary Forces took over the region. The ruins of the castle stand on the hill top. It was destroyed during the Nine Years War by the French Army in 1689. Burg Eltz, De, near Cochem, a family dwelling begun in the 9th century as a small manor, became a formidable castle. It occupied an important place along the trade route between the Moselle Valley and the Eifle region. The castle withstood a multiyear siege, and has never fallen to invaders. Due to careful negotiations, the family was able to hold onto it throughout WW2. Rothenburg, De, in what was once separate Franconia, now Bavaria, is known for the medieval town and architecture. Foundations began around 950 AD. It is located along the Tauber River Valley. Dinklesbuhl, De, not far from Rothenburg, is another medieval fortified town founded about 1351 AD. It surrendered to the Swedish Army in 1632 but was spared. Appenzell, Switzerland (Ch), is the most conservative Swiss canton, mountainous, and is located in eastern Switzerland. Gimmelwald, Ch, is a remote Swiss village located high above the Lauterbrunnen Valley. It is a pedestrian town accessible by cable car. Oberammergau, De, is known for its woodcarving and rustic environment. It is located near King Ludwig's Neuschanstein and Linderhoff Castles. Marienplatz, Munich’s central square, contained the city’s town hall. Today it is a central visiting place for tourists. Nearby the Hofbrauhause am Platzl, built in 1589 by Bavarian Duke Maximillian and has become the most famous brew house in the world. This is not far from the Oktoberfest event grounds. Also nearby is Odeon Platz. Greenland, and a view of its ice sheet, just south of Uvtorsiutit. Appearance is similar to the ice age coverage on northern continental land masses. The only exposed land is near the oceans. The balance is covered under a solid sheet of ice, but is currently thinning. Newfoundland, near Torngat Mountains National Park, whose land mass is scoured by the tracks of glaciers now long since retreated.

    Nosler LRAB

    Something that may help you, if you're using a ballistics calculator of some type, is this LRAB B/C chart, which takes into consideration the rifle barrel twist rate. The chart showing tested B/Cs is from Applied Ballistics Litz, and the twist rate recommendation is from Nosler. There are a few significant B/C differences.
