piller, your sheath is a lot better than my first couple of attempts.

I used the tops off a pair of old leather engineer boots to make knife sheaths. I sharpened a nail and used it as a punch for the stitches and used monofilament fishing line to sew it all up.

In the video from the SHOT show, something looked wrong with the AR magazine. Is the 350 Legend a "Long Action" and have to use a AR-10 size receiver?

I'll stick with the 300BLK and 357 Maximum.
