    I built 270wby myself a few years ago. Kind of similar situation, I used my passed father's Savage action I bought for him just prior to losing him. The Savage action gave me the ability to do all the work myself. That really add to the special meaning of rifle. Sorry about cell phone photo quality. But it gives ya a idea of what you can accomplish. It's not the fanciest or most expensive but like I mentioned it has a special meaning to me. Oh, and the rifle is smokin' accurate.

    Yeah basicly but I was thinking about maybe also moving the shoulder forward .050" which would shorten the neck to the same as a rem neck but would gain some case capacity. If I remember right it was 3-4 gr gain. Just enough to get 3150 fps with RL33/Retumbo in a 26" barrel with the 165s in theory/quick load.
