Makes perfect sense .

By the way, I like H44, but for the price, I could easily live with BR154 (almost typed BR549)!

In the $300 give or take range go with the h17. Classic grain structure for a classic lined rifle



Then I might just spring for the br154. The rifting in the top of the right side of the butt should "thin out" to a more quater sawn look but YMMV

Smithy,
It was that slab-sawn look of BR 154 that turned me off to it. If H-44 finished up looking more like the left side, I would prefer it, but if it finishes closer to the right side, H-17 is a better choice. Bottom line, I think H-17 is less of a risk.

BTW, what is this medical bills thing? Are you having health problems?

TBR

Just all the incidentals that go with having the knees replaced (two in one year).
Paid the deductible ($3800) on the latest overhaul, should get a refund from Blue Cross in about 90 days or so Prescriptions etc.

On doctors recommendation I disposed of all old footwear and went out and bought three pairs of shoes and a new pair of boots. Old wear patterns might cause problems on the new front-end alignment

Go with H17, particularly for a Win 52 project

Sorry to hear about your health issues. So...you're changing out the old unevenly worn tires for a set of new ones because of a new front-end alignment. Do you rotate the new shoes every 5000 miles?

I agree about the blank. It is so easy to look at the blank as a whole and consider some of the beautiful marbling here and there, but, when it's all said and done, most of the wood will not be in the stock, so, especially with a slender stock, choosing a blank with the tighter and more dense streaking will be best. H-17 it is!
BTW, in your experience, is this outfit trustworthy?

TBR,

I have only ordered from Old Tree twice. First time about four years ago the last about two years ago. These were for customers wanting something nicer than I could find locally. Got reasonably fast service and received the wood as ordered.
I have nothing to complain about in my dealings with them. I will no doubt use them in the future when need/desire arises. But as in anything YMMV.
