    Shot the Finnwolf once and now it won't open. Any suggestions?

    Never mind. Put a rod down the barrel and tapped it. All Good

    It wouldn’t do that if you had Sako rings...

    Got it sighted in at 50 yards and continuously hit a 12 inch plate at 100 yards. Not bad considering it is 112 degrees.
    I like the rifle!

    No, It was a reload. After that I used new ammo, then some of the same reloads. No issues.

    If you used something other than your thumbs........it would be an accomplishment worthy of addition to your skill set.

    Imagine........The Thirteen Labors of Stonecreek!! :):)........pandemics not withstanding. :)

    Mitch......

    Still........one stuck case........is one too many.

    I'm sure you're aware of things to check.......good luck.

    Heck......after over 40 years......I still carry a multi-jointed cleaning rod, in my hunting jacket.

    Hope this helps.

    I just bought the rifle, it was used very little. I lubed everything up after the stuck case. All is good, now
