    Boy do I ever date myself. You could buy a SAKO PPC repeater with a thin barrel, and a mag in either the 22 or 6mm. You could also buy a single shot version with a heavy barrel. How do I know this? my buddy shot a deer out of a tree stand with a thin barreled PPC and we had to adjust our rules to accommodate the heavy barreled single shot actions, ie the 40X, the SAKO 6PPC single shots. Oh well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was there when Doc Palmisono gave him the rifle, . I was sure it was a Ruger #1 w/serial # 1.. I would really like to know which. I think his friend is the person that purchased, from a small gunshop, a box or 220 Russian ammo,, gave it to Doc Palmisano. May be wrong,, but I believe it was the same box that he and Ferris Pindall started the development of the 22 PPC. When he presented the rifle, we were in the building where the shop @ Kelblys is now, long before the large reloading area was built.. I also remember the 1st Sako 6PPC I saw was @ Super Shoot. Ron DIll, of Virginia shot it in one of the classes.. As I remember, the rifle produced a .188" @ 100yds.

    I found this. PS- The 1965 equipment list was in an old PS Magazine. I also found some nostalgia in an old "Rifle" magazine showing the original HOF inductees. James Mock

    Wasn't trying to start a ruckcus. This may not be the same time or rifle,, but Ruger presented Doc Palmisano w/ Ruger #1 Serial # 1 in 6PPC, and he gave it to one of his good friends @ Super Shoot,,, 1986 or 1987 I'm pretty sure it was SS 14,, my first year there (out of 21 yrs in a row)

    .30 American

    The short-lived .30 American from 1987.



    The precision crowd moved Federal to produce 50,000 small primer .30-30 cases. As advertised, it was held to match standards and received additional annealing.



    Back then a few folks seemed uncomfortable relying on a foreign entity (ie, Sako) for BR worthy brass (not a concern now but their fears came to pass with the PPC brass shortage 2 - 3 years later). I'd love to buy a piece or two of .30 American for my cartridge collection. If anyone has one they're willing to sell, PM or email me at lee@singleactions.com

    Thanks,

    In his book, "The Ultimate in Rifle Accuracy", Glenn Newick devotes a chapter that gives a pretty good history of how extreme accuracy shooting evolved through the ages..
