Here's a photo of the last 4 rifles I've purchased and/or traded for:

From the top:
Sauer drilling, 16x16x7x57R, with a 1.5-6x Zeiss Diavari scope.
1903-03 Springfield, made by Remington in 1942, apparently all original. (Thethe sling may not be.)
Ruger Hawkeye African, .275 Rigby.
BSA Martini Model 12, a .22 rimfire converted to .22 Hornet.

You can see my recent tendencies, but I still occasionally buy (or "build') a practical hunting rifle, even though between my New Ultra Light ARMS .30-06 and Whitworth .375 H&H (which has both a walnut and synthetic stock), along with a few others, am pretty well outfitted for practicality anywhere in the world.




John I like the BSA very much. You scored well Sir. I had never heard of "panache" until I read an article by Skeeter years ago.

Thanks!

Skeeter was a writer with a LOT of panache. (His son Bart inherited some too!)

The most recent, September/October 2020. The cover has a big bull elk bugling directly at the camera, and the cover blurb for the article says, "Traditions vs. Trendsetting."

Thank You.

I’ll pick it up & read it before stepping too deep into this conversation.

Have you considered the 7x64 for panache ? No point making it easy
, or too practical.

Just a thought

We all need panache... some more than others.

Mule Deer:

I'm pretty sure that BSA is a Model 15 with what's referred to as a "Special Stock". See the more complete description of the various small frame Martini rimfire rifles here: http://www.adamsguns.com/martini.htm

There's not a lot of practicality for deer hunting in Michigan with a 300 H&H but it does have lots of panache. We altered the metal taking off the little protrusion on the front of the action, rounded the bottom metal, recessed the safety slide and even case colored the barrel band.

I think it can be summed up with panache Winchester Model 21 and practical Winchester Model 24!

TRx thanks for the link, I’ve been looking for a copy on the newsstand locally without success. Since first mentioned here.

I’m not sure that the article really touches on Panache so much as Trying to imply that Traditional, but archaic rounds with excessive throating variances imbue the user with this mystical Panache.
My take is that this is Just a Quixotic pursuit of futility.

Far better a .280 , or some flavour of .280 Improved (RCBS 28 degree) for Practical Panache

To me, A 3” 338-300WSM in an Intermediate length CRF action, that feeds flawlessly has panache.
I don’t care if it is stocked in Kevlar reinforced fibreglass, French Walnut, or Birch. It still has to be functional.

Cheers

You guys aren't finding that issue of SA on newstands because it appeared in August.

I've been LOOKING since August. Strangely, it seems none of the stores in my "orbit" even carry SA at all, despite selling lots of other sporting mags, some of which I would consider far more obscure than SA.

John, I'm assuming the link I posted above is the complete story, and not something abridged for online. I just read it over supper and enjoyed it very much - thanks.
Now I have to get back to the shop and work on inletting the walnut for my 1903 Springfield .275 Rigby, 1903 Springfield 9.3x62, and Mauser .256 Newton (the 1903 Springfield 338-06 is already done). I have a chance to have my buddy drive them on the 6th of December to the fellow in CO that's going to blue them for me. If I can get them all done in time, I'll save a bunch on shipping!

And the next trip to the range is going to be the first trial on the TC Compass II 6.5 CM, in its Tupperware stock, detachable magazine, and matte-black finish.

I reckon I'm kind of middle of the road, like you, but I do love the nice blue and walnut oldies.

Thanks for a nice read,
Rex

Rex,

Yeah, not all newstands carry SA--though here in Montana most do.

The linked article is the entire printed version. Glad you enjoyed it! Many years ago the late, great John Wootters told me that gun writing is primarily entertainment--something I took to heart.
