    Bill...

    Thanks...No doubt Cletis has been a big behind the scene help to me on my Lapua chambering.

    One thing I have wondeed about, it's really none of my business, but I'll ask it anyway...
    Do you know if Rosa-Sharron and Cletis are Duckhawk's parents? There mannerisms are so similar that I'm almost sure something is going on there..I know his last name is different, but thought he might have been adopted or raised by them...

    The real secret is,Tom is using screw in chokes in his ratchet barreled turbo. Depending on which lot of ammo and the conditions determines which choke Tom selects. It's one of the tricks he has learned from his awesome shotgun barrel work.

    :

    I wouldn't doubt that he does.

    One of the best moves I ever made, was to send an old North Carolina boy some rimfire barrel stubs so he could practice chambering.

    And now he's developed a "very special" Lapua chamber......

    Friend karls42:


    If it's on the Internet it must be true.

    I was talking to Tom W about his special Lapua chamber a while back....

    At some point he said, (paraphrasing) Bill, the kool thing about my special Lapua chamber is, that it looks exactly like my Eley chamber.


    I then said, (also paraphrasing) Course it ain't, since everybody knows Lapua won't shoot in an Eley chamber.

    Then Tom said something like; Yea, anybody that follows the Internet knows Lapua won't shoot in an Eley chamber, that's where I learned all about Lapua chambers, on the Internet.


    I then said, "Man you got that right."......or something to that effect.
