    I never let go of that dream until too old. The guy they sent couldn't climb, had no experience and was far too large anyway. I could have climbed with the Alpini...long time ago now.

    I'd still have a go, just to see. It'd be like trying to stabilize one of those buntliners for some gentleman's offhand shooting.

    If you're just firing live primed cases, that will happen. There's no chamber pressure to flatten them out. Try a factory new case and prime them to test. You must have a couple factory new...

    I have one here as an example and that's all. I tried to fit one many years ago and tore it while trying. Maybe if you warm it up it'll get pliable.

    I'll bet if you took that pipe off at about 3" and crown, mill and slide a fat blade in for a sight, it'll shoot heavy loads in little rathole groups. I'd put a Hogue monogrip on it as well. Those...
