Elmer Keith (1899-1984)

The Library of Congress American English dialect recordings include a two-part interview with the late dean of the Big-Bore gun writers Elmer Keith himself. The gravel-voiced Keith was 82-years-old and living in Salmon, Idaho at the time.

Thank you very much for posting this.


I just put one of his books in my Amazon cart the other day. I reload 44 so I’ve done a little reading about him and use the bullets he designed. It was difficult to find the right ones though. Most made today don’t have the flat base Elmer preferred.
