I have a question that takes a little less brain power than we've been using today.
What are your thoughts on the 404 Dakota caliber? I have a chance to buy one at a good price and would like the opinions of the learned and experienced about this caliber. The rifle is 8.45# in a nice french walnut stock, 24" barrel and 4 round drop box. It would only be used for smaller varmints and an ocasional lion. Factory loads are 400 grain Woodleigh soft at 2150 fps or 2400 fps, and equivalent solids, also. Of course handloading will be the way to go. We have the Swift A-frame at 400 grains, the A Square DT's and the North Forks as well as the Woodleigh.
Just wondered what the panel would think.
