Good stuff Tom!  :thumbs: 

Bobby's done up a number of muzzy bbls for me and a few BPCR ones too.

That pan brush/pick antler tool you sent me works awesome and I use it a lot, many thanx again!  :wavey:  :camp:

My 54 Gain Twist from Bobby shoots great too.  As do my other Hoyt Gain Twist barrels.  Good idea, esp for elk.   I can never make sense of your target pics, though.
