1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Does it have a hinged floor plate or is it fixed.

    If you want to enjoy shooting this rifle, work up a handload using the Hornady 300 gr HP and the appropriate amount of H4198. You can shoot it all day long, instead of just once a month. ;-) Good luck.

    Needs a muzzle brake, shoot it one handed.

    One can load it down to around 3200 ft/lb ME and it will still take anything on this side of the pond. The factory downloaded this round to 50,000 PSI a long time ago. It did not NEED to run at 65,000 PSI. Also, the old load was TOO HOT in tropical climates.

    The aforementioned 300 gr HP will do the trick. I liked RX-7 in this cartridge.

    A 300 gr bullet at 2200 fps has a bigger power factor (660) than the 338 Win Mag with a 200 gr bullet at 3000 fps (600). The 30/06, with a power factor of around 450, is tame indeed compared to these heavy game rounds.

    Serious Northern woods medicine. Turns the biggest bear into a rug. LOL

    I have owned Whitworths and this one looks like mine. They are interarms actions that were sent to England to be built and tested. Has a hinged floor plate. For the money they are fantastic guns and very tough, accurate, and reliable.
