Hang in there tho! That barrel isn't broke in yet.
This will help aid the having to load shorter so the magazine will allow you to be able to run it as a repeater.

However, the only downside is that you have to have a gunsmith install it, b/c they have to open up (length-wise) the inlet on the bottom of the action, to allow you to be run them at your max preferred COL.
I am debating on havin this done, and wondering if it will decrease the value of my Sendero SF by having it done? Not that I ever plan on selling it...Just don't want to turn a $1,600+ rifle into a $1,000 rifle, you know? However, being able to run my STW 180 Berger loads as a repeater would be nice! It preferes them right up on the lands.
