    Looks like Santa will be bringing me a .300 Remington Ultra Mag. Some assembly required.

    I thought he was bringin me a rebarreled Ruger 77 in 9.3x62, but It's looking like it might be something else. If it can't be that, he will open up my bolt face and hang a .358 Barrel with 1-12 twist chambered in, Drum Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Scroll down for the answer..............................















    .358 Norma

    Oh bloody 'el! I convinced you good and thorough on that one, what did you go and do now?!

    My list is pretty simple. Either an M10 762 because I have AK's but really like the way they set that one up with the rails and front sight, a Savage Mark II with a threaded barrel, a nice 7.62x39 bolt gun or .308. However my next purchase will be a shotgun to replace my current model. Looking at the Mossberg 500 Tri-rail.

    I always thought the 25 was a WSM. Guess I got loose marbles upstairs.

    No, its a super short. USRAC originally intended a 25 wsm, but it was extremely erratic with loads and pressure, something that has been proven with wildcats too. Dang shame it didn't work out, it would have been right on the heels of the 257 Wby with a slightly shorter barrel and a short action rifle. Didn't work out though, so it went in the WSSM case. Sort of like the 338 WSM not working out and becoming the 325 instead. Good ideas don't always work out right

    My grandpas Winchester 1894 chambered in .25-35. The first gun I ever hunted with, I always remember him telling me, DONT SCRATCH THAT GUN, OR IT WILL BE YOUR HIDE! Fond memories, how life changes.

    Oh bloody 'el! I convinced you good and thorough on that one, what did you go and do now?!

    My gun smith is having a problem getting a barrel. He's going to call Shilen and Brownells and see if they have one in stock. If not, and it looks like a long term project waiting for a barrel, He's going to go forth with the .358 Norma, a very respectable round in its own right, I think you will admit.

    Since the only thing I have in the "stupid big" category is a NEF .500 S&W......I figured I'd ask for an Barrett 82A1 or an Accuracy International in .338 Lapua mag.
    God show's mercy on drunks and dumb animals.........two outa three ain't a bad score!

    All I want is a Marlin 1895CB- Cowboy. 45-70. 26" Octagon barrel, with full length magazine.
    Just like Steve's. :love::love:

    It's not too much to ask, but I sure as heck can't fine one.

    I have been wanting a .338 Lapua for quite some time, but the .338 Edge can get me more velocity with a 300gr bullet using a standard action. Since I am Santa, it has got me thinking...

    Best quality double rifle in 470 nitro express works for me too.

    Automatic selective ejectors, single selective trigger.

    Boxlock, with detachable locks of course.

    Gibbs, Purdy, Holland and Holland, Westley Richards, etc

    Some tasteful engraving would be nice if you please Mister Claus.

    Highly figured wood is a bit more fragile than plainer wood, so plainer is good.

    Boxed nicely with a companion Howdah pistol would be a plus.

    I'd like sling attachments but not insistent on it, gunbearers gotta make a living.

    flip rear sight for fifty, one hundred, and one hundred fifty yards.

    Some wear would be okay, but a bright bore would be pleasant to look through.

    I'd rather that rifle than a Ferrari.

    And uses much cheaper RUM brass. You can order chambered, finished barrels from Shilen.

    Tell him to try Montana Rifle Co, too. I think they're pretty snappy with barrel orders and they carry .366
