Bullard 40-65 In Fine Condition

Post by Shrapnel »

I happened to come across this fine rifle at the local gun shop when the guy brought it in to consign. It barely hit the counter before I claimed it.

This is a real high condition Bullard 40-65 and I will be shooting it soon...

Wow! That is super clean. I've never seen a Bullard to handle.

Didn't know anyone else here had one. Mine (40/75/260) is serial numbered below 1000. In Alaska presently, getting back home I'll try to post a picture. There is two fine books on Bullards.

The rest of the wannabes are drowning in envy.

I hope to bloody mine this weekend on a grouse or 2.

Heading out this morning up the Stress Highway for two weeks for moose. Continue this after I get back. My Bullard is in both Jamieson books as we wrote back and forth during the writing.

I guess I'll have to get one of the book. I'm still trying to figure out how the cartridges get into the tube. I'm gonna have to go with "underneath the receiver".
