    I like the Mannlicher, what caliber?

    This one is chambered in 9.5x57, aka .375 rimless nitro express. I’m down to my last 10-12 pieces of brass that came with the rifle. I’m going to have to learn how to size some more some day soon.

    Black bear with a bow, about 3 yards away. The arrow zipped right through the bear and it just looked at me and wandered down the hill a bit and fell over.
