I had been intrigued by the thought of these guns for some time. Being something of a gun hipster for many years I have always been drawn to the unusual and obscure. The 8's and 81's seemed just the thing, particularly after learning that they were designed by St. Browning himself. Then I literally ...

At 100 yards the upper three holes are Hornady FTX 160 gr over 30 gr of 3031. The lower three holes are Sierra 150 gr RN over the same charge. She also dinged an 8 inch plate at the same range with monotonous regularity. http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b178/bandersnatch45/IMG_20160425_1540047.jpg

The odd thing about The Monster is that it shoots better than my other .30, the one that unscrews itself under recoil. It also feeds both of my handloads: the regular ones with the 150 gr round nose bullets, and the Hornady 150 gr Spitzers. These last my unscrewing gun would have trouble extracting ...

The hole for the trigger guard screw isn't even close. It's too far up the tang. I wonder if it's for a similar gun, if that's at all possible. It does fit very tight, so I'm going to test fire it this week anyway.

It's .30 Rem. Got a stock and the tang screw coming in next week. Oddly, it doesn't have a barrel jacket plug screw for a sling swivel.

The barrel is in very good shape so I hope she's a shooter.

If one must have stripper clips (known in more refined circles as "exotic dancer clips") for one's 35 Rem or 300 Savage, M1 clips work like a charm. For my small caliber rifles I employ the above method of loading.
