    30/06 Twist

    I cut the casing head and casing neck off a 30/06 casing, drilled out a lead free FMJ 30 caliber bullet to accept a
    Cross refill.
    Applied an Elk to a piece of curly maple using Testors Clear Waterslide Decal and finished with 10 coats of
    Thin CA using my Dipping Method that I'm still working on to perfect the process.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Nice work Les. That's certainly a one of a kind piece.

    Very nice work there, Les! Nice ammo you picked as well. Nothing wrong with the .06!

    Les you do such beautiful work. Are you sure you're not a professional?

    Very nice, Les. For some reason, I like this one more than most cartridge pens.
