    Last from this shop for a bit...maybe...

    First PSI bolt action on cocobolo. Gotta say that even though I did BTC with provided steel bushings...the bushings suck!
    Now you ask what is the stuff above the pen? Before I tucked it away, I stabilized two alligator jawbones for later casting. Sorry I haven't posted much but with moving and all...kinda tough. Enjoy! C&C always used next time!

    Between The Centers. Way of using only bushings w/o the mandrel. The bushings are custom made SS not mild steel and extremely accurate. These, even w/o the mandrel are horrid!
