Gorgeous gun Ben. My 280 is an old Santa Ana customized 98 that a 175 bullet touching the lands is only 3/8" short of touching the case neck. It is a jacketed only but is a great game killer from Elk to 'Lopers.
Absolutely gorgeous rifle, especially the master craftsman woodworking and finish. However, even more important (when showing pics on the internet) it the quality of the photos themselves. Well done in all respects Ben.
