Pretty tough Phil with just a straight on veiw but he is heavy and has a low curl. On a big curled ram the two things to look for is the bottom of the curl to drop below the bottom of the jaw line when veiwed either head on or from the side and when veiwing from the side a big ram will come up between the eye and nostril where as a smaller curled ram will come up close to or at the eye and his lower side of his curl will be above the lower curve of the jaw bone..  Rule of thumb is the closer the ear to the center of the donut hole the bigger the curl. As well a wide ram will have his ears just touch the horn when looking head on. With narrow tighter rams the ears will cover half the horn .Not all science but was what I was tought by the old timers I learned from.
Just a couple ideas that may help guys I hope.

Hope this may help to clarify what I tried to say LOL

Just using these pics as I had them marked already from an earlier conversation with ISB. Can exchange ISB pics for some that are closer and easier to see if I get a minute.

Straight on, pretty simple to see the difference, be sure note the ears. First pic the ear tips are over and to the center line of the horn. On the later two pics the ear is near the inside edge on the horn.






Side veiw, the first pic that ISB posted has the ram tipping up to the eye not infron at all. As well the bottom of the horn curve is above or just at the bottom of the jaw bone.




Not a monster ram but shows the horn tip coming up farther ahead.

Love these games especially now that I can get out and look for some of my own.

37 long on the short side
16
14.5
13.5
10 even though I don't think it is that big.

Gives me 182 and I'll put a couple quarters in there for good measure

182 3/8

Always seems I error on the small side.

Winner has been posted @ 9am @ 197 5/8 SCI and was  Dusty Chrisman. Looks like Titanium hit it. Hope you entered! I missed the darn thing by 7/8"  :(

I was talking with the boys at GSC and got the measurments for my Hunting FB page so we could take this a little farther here if anyone wants. Anyone have a guess on the rams length and bases?
