That's Freakin' Savage with capitals, please. 😁 Is the goal small groups or something else, like ringing steel waaaay out there or whacking yotes waaaay out there. I really don't' know what the caliber is capable of.

Son has one and it’s his 3rd one…. All done by Mike Bryant. Justin sells them as fast as he can get them built.

Basically a 7mm Remington mag ..just short and fat so it will work on a short action.
Would you believe it was invented for use in a model 7 can you imagine the thump that would give!
Building for the sole purpose of going to shoot a mile at the dome.

George, you better get some Wheelie Bars for the chair or else do what a Red Leg would do, spud it in. ;)

Teach me, Tom. In the Army, an artilleryman is sometimes called a redleg because a red stripe on the trousers denotes Artillery. And I found that redleg is a Caribbean term for a poor white person. I'm sure "spud it in" is a clue, but I can't figure it out. Means "anchor it" or "pin it down?"

You're correct of course my Red Leg (sic) is your redleg, from Civil War artilleryman uniform.
The trailing arms on an artillery piece will have a "spade" / spud on the end. You've probably witnessed or seen films of a 105 bouncing pretty good under recoil. Without the spades spudded in......it would be pretty rambunctious.
It seems my Uncle said they could horse a 75 around into position but the 105s not so much. Hmmm, or was it 105 compared to the155s? Prob 75/105.
It's been a long time since we would be fixing fence and having conversations. How l loved that man. I will see him again. No doubt in my mind. I'm just here on a rain check.
