There are probably very fee members left here that remember Bob (faucettb). He was a huge inspiration in my shooting life, and a great mentor. I really just wanted to post so he knows he is not forgotten, and is still very much appreciated! He loved his 8mm Rem Mag, with a 220 Gameking at 3050 if I remember that correctly. Its been several years now, since he passed (04/04/2009). It still hurts too.

I miss ya Bob!

This thread motivated me to read a dozen or more old threads that 'faucettb' contributed to on this forum. I enjoyed them all and intend to read more of them. I feel some of your loss, he really seemed like a nice and knowledgeable fellow.

I still blame him for my love of my 204.;)
Potlatch gun show certainly wasn't as fun without him.

I think there ought to be a tribute to him in the Boise Cabelas instead of Elmer.

Bob was a class act and as such, impossible to follow.

Yup - Ol' Bob was a kindhearted soul and a great tinkerer. We had many PM's over time and I lost a friend with his passing. RIP, Bob.

Didn’t know him, but he sounds like a fellow I wish I did. RIP !
He really was a kind fella, with a heart the size of the great outdoors. He guided me as I was wanting to get into reloading, and pretty much talked me through everything in the beginning. It had gotten where I didn't buy a gun until I ran it passed Bob, to get his thoughts. He shot an 8mm Rem Mag, that you will find referenced to a lot if you dig through the archives. I know at one time, he also had a .308 Norma that he loved. He was the first to welcome a new member here, and usually the first to try to help. I lost a dear friend in Bob.

Great and incredibly knowledgeable guy. Loved his stories about Alaska hunting or what was happening in central Idaho.

I bought a bunch of 147 gr. 308 bullets from him that he had pulled from mg ammo. Used about a dozen so far...

He was a gentleman and had a kind word for all. Also he had a wealth of knowledge. I miss him too.

I, too, lost a great friend in the passing of Bob Faucett, unfortunately being on the other side of the pond the news filtered slowly to this side and I missed being able to send flowers to the funeral. This hurt me because he really was a great mentor and I wanted to send my condolences that way.
Anyway, Bob was a great man with a wealth of knowledge and SENSE, which is diminishing in this day and age. He was also young at the time of his passing, which is unfortunate too.

Cheers.🥲🥲
