Ammo 30 rem.

Lucky find at my local auction house. I believe the UMC ammo dates 1914-1916 time period. Two full boxes of the super X silver tips and 18 in the old UMC box. Looks like a dog bite marks on box. All for 50 bucks.

Use a vintage leather sling that straps to the stock butt plate area and then use the barrel jacket screw area for the front swivel that way nothing is harmed or drilled into. eBay has a swivel that goes into the front...
