Re: Ideal Wolf Hunting Rifle
Thanks,Benchracer!!I bought an A bolt medalian to build a 6.5-284 and changed my mind due the same thing!The thing that came as a suprise was that the the old tang safety M77 has a box that is 3.375",has an adjustable trigger and I have rebarreled it myself and will do it again.Gunsmiths don't like the recoil lug,so,they don't do much w/them!I have good tools and headspace is easy!I don't do machine work and have to rely on the local smith for first fit but can switch barrel that gun in 15 min.Rezero at 100yds right across the draw from the shop and she's ready to play!!!Sooo,brass for 6.5-284 is harder as I already have 30-06 and 25-06,that mag will run the stuff I'd be puttin' through it,and the trigger is set at about 2.5 lbs zero creep and it cost me $300!The 6.5-284 is a well known shooter and the fun of it all is ,I can do one of each!!
