Re: 308 norma mag

what is the absolute top dollar you could get for it ? the guy needs some roofing work done badly but is in somewhat of a fix financially because of the economy. I want to allow him the absolute top value for it and then mabye a little more. I don't believe in kicking a man when he's down so i want to make sure i do a little more than the gun's worth,
thanks

    With out looking at the rifle $400.00 would be a minimum and if its nice and your doing the
    labor then I would allow him $500.00 dollars for it .

    Any good rifle is worth $500.00 even though you may not be able to sell it for that for one
    reason or another .

    Bartering is good for both parties.

    I loaded for may Dad's .308 NM. It's a bush gun for on the riverboat so it has iron sights and a 22" barrel. I wasnt all that impressed with it until I started reloading for him. The very first load I tested (I dont remember the exact load, but it was a 180grn pill infront of 4831) cut a ragged hole at 50 paces, open sights. I just about never shoot open sights (mostly because I'm terrible at it). I wanted to put a scope on it and see what it would do but never did. This was an old rifle that had seen better days I might add. I now really like the round.

    my, friends uncle owns one,that i load for. very acurate, but throat is eroaded now. best to make cases from 300win mag, easier to make from 338win mag, but come out a little too short. grafsandsons sells norma cases for about 130.00 per 100, for either 308norma or 300win mag.

    Hi
    I do not have a Interarms in 308 mag., I have been shooting that caliber for 40+ years and just love it. I will not tell you it's better than any 30 cal. mag., you can find brass $ but it's the price to pay to play. Use mine for anything from Groundhogs to Black Bear, works well. Price wise I agree with the others, 4 to 5 is fair.
