Hit a local gunshow today, passed up two nice 99A's in 243 for $500 each, probably should have bought them as trading fodder. Picked up some ammo, brass, copy of Koller's Shots at Whitetails. Kind of wondering if anybody can date the UMC 35 Remington box I got? Says Remington on it, so figure it's late 1910's or maybe 1920's?

Yeah, not Savage.. but it was in such good shape it called to me. 20 pieces of Peters 303 Savage brass for $5 was nice as well as a few singles I found.

Well not gun show news, but I did get a message from a bloke asking if I still shot a 250-3000. Told him yep I do. Sent me 100 new win cases & about the same number of once loaded cases. FREE.

I love going to the shows and finding the small stuff. "Shots at Whitetails" is one of the all-time great deer hunting books. Good finds Rory.

One was missing the front sight, not sure about the rear. They were both wearing Leupold VX-III's which you could get with the gun for $300 more.
