The 12ga FH case  now is in the new COTW book on
last  page in the wildcat section, I think page 324.
They gave good credit to Rob for the idea of that   case....


The model 416 HE long case in middle, hydro formed one,

has case capacity of 240 gr, and the 416 HSM in picture,

on the right, we fired a case twice, capacity is 320gr.. Ed..




More info out now;  short, fat cases sticking, pockets not lasting as expected.
Trying to get best speeds the things raising pressures are bad case
 proportions, too sharp of shoulders, too fast of powders...........
 and  debth of  the bullet into the powder space, as shown in the picture  below..
My 375, 416, etc testing, bullets loaded like bottom one, in longer freebore....Ed.

I still call that tournament "the Crosby" and what an "event" it was (when Bing was alive, before his pig of a wife screwed up the whole thing) - I can remember the likes of Phil Harris, et al, playing in it - now they've got dolts like bill murray and george lopez flopping around the course

took my Son to Pebble for a week of golf and just plain fun a while back - couldn't get consecutive nights at the Lodge so we stayed at the Inn at Spanish Bay - very nice.  we played Spanish Bay, Spyglass and Pebble twice each - I still have all my scorecards from that week

at Spanish Bay, each evening as the sun sets, there's a Bag Piper who walks the length of #1 (which is a straight away par 5, towards the ocean) and he times his walk so that the last you hear of the Pipes happens just as the sun goes below the horizon - a fun and goose-bumpy way to spend Happy Hour after a day of golf (there were 3 Pipers, one of whom was a gal, and they rotated doing the walk (perhaps weekly))

with each drive along the Kali coast I always make it a point to drive the 17 Mile Drive and always stop at the Lodge for a drink - then a walk out to the 18th Green - not many places on earth as beautiful as that stretch of coastline

I also had my 1st legal beer at the bar inside the Del Monte Lodge (I think that was it..?) - was in basic training (Ft Ord, of course) and went on a bus tour of that area - October 1959
