    Is that fresh or frozen (thawed) fish, 4mer? Been thinking about smoking fish myself.
    Aviator, nice looking rifle. Hope to se some blood on it this spring or fall!
    I've been reloading and shooting the loads. Searching for a 6.8 spc load with 130 gr. speer at 2600 fps. Think I found it yesterday!

      .430-310 grain for my .44 mag.
      And some 245 grain swc from my Lyman 429-421 mold which is an Elmer Keith style bullet for my .44 mag.
      I suppose I should cast and load some .338-220 grain bullets for my .338 win mag.
      I have enough lead I'm not running out of cast boolits anytime soon!
      I still have quite a few jacketed rounds left to load someday but playing with the cast boolits is so much fun that's all I've been working on.
      Plus I get to powder coat them in fun colors.

      For your 338, Try find a cast bullet load that hits center at 25 yards with same sight-in as your 338 hunting load. Then, take a few rnds with you when you go moose hunting, in case you want to bag a wabbit, tarmigan or spruse gruse.

      I have such a load for my 7mm Mauser.

        Not really my thing but I'll keep that in mind.
        When I'm moose hunting I'd rather not risk spoiling my moose hunt making noise to shoot a grouse or hare.
        Those species have long enough seasons that I can hunt them.
        Where as moose season normally seems to fly by .
        And i'd rather bag a moose.
        I know I can bag the small game later on.

          Every year I am amazed at the number of dudes that blaze away at grouse (or road signs, trees, whatever) with a high powered hunting rifle.

            And then they complain that they never get a moose and blame ADF&G for poor management!lol

              Years back I had to ask a group of Pilgrims that were blazing away at the gravel pit on Marathon road to take a break so we could access the timber there. They held off a bit, and we entered the forest. My buddy was certain we wouldn't see any moose there due to all the shooting. Well about 500 yards in I jumped a bull out of it's bed, and blasted him. When we went back to the truck to get the packboards we had to yell at the Pilgrims again to 'hold their fire.' They could not believe we got a bull under those circumstances. Stupid pilgrims.

                  Going to make a batch of baby safe oatmeal & wild chamomile next with tussah silk in it.

                    I understand, but you never know when loads like that might come in handy. Say, in a Survival Situation. You could be stuck out in the wilderness, due to weather, or any number of things.

                    I know a guy who went deer hunting every year. On one trip, he was stranded for a week on Kodiak. They were eating venison before the pickup plane could reach them.

                    Beyond that, it's Handloading fun, and fun small game hunting with your big game rifle. It's also good practice. I carry a few such rounds in my pack when using THAT rifle. I happened onto the cast bullet reduced load that shot the existing sight in, by accident, so I don't have a procedure to find one.

                    You gotta do, Something, with those 338 bullets you made.

                      Yes there's only 6 or so wild blueberries in ~2# of soap.
                      It isn't much but they are in there!
