I regret to inform the forum that Buck Elliot, AKA Dave Behling has passed at 79 years.

I first met Buck on the old Sixgunner site many years ago. He was always a gentleman. He shared his knowledge of firearms and always had something interesting to share. I hate seeing his kind go, but as has been said, we are all traveling that same road.

Even as low as I am on 4198, I think loading a cylinder-full of .45 colt and firing them as tribute to the gentleman who developed and recommended the loads seems appropriate.....

Sad to hear of his passing. I've wondered what became of him as I saw nothing from him in a long time?

Very sorry to hear it. A man who had been there and done that. He had a wealth of knowledge and is real loss to our little community.
