I'm visiting my daughter in Denver for a few days and decided to go to a gunshow there this weekend. It was just up the road so I figured what the heck.
Lots of neat stuff and friendly folks- probably the best big gun show I've been to in many years.
I found a table where the vendor was selling some rifles for a friend that had died in Juneau. He had several temping rifles but one that caught my eye for the price was a .375 Whelen 40 deg. It was built on a FN Supreme action and was in a nice lightweight fiberglass stock. Workmanship was first class - the gunsmith did a very good job. The rifle came with the dies and some ammo - the dies themselves aren't cheap.
Now I've got to get it back to AK and load some ammo. If it shoots well it could become one of my favorite rifles - it is considerably lighter than my .375 H&H but should still have plenty of power for anything I run into.
Two questions: 1) Anybody have any experience with this cartridge and 2) does anyone know who makes the stock with EATON on the butt plate?
Thanks in advance!
