I heard someone that cracked the stock and blamed it on the lead sled. He was using 50 pounds or so of counter weight . The price for the mag is about right.
Nice rig you have there. One just like that in a .338 lapua the other day that sold for $1825.00 on GB. The stocks after seeing them you really need do FU to crack a stock.

Re: Good deal on a couple of hunting rifles, what one would you buy?

The .300 is new , zero rounds ! The used 30-06 , SS , was most likely someone's deer rifle. The barrel is probably no more than just broke in. I have seen many a grown men ( novice) wince at a 30-06 on site - in days at my local gun range. The "SAKO " -oohooo , lala- with MODS , tells me it has more rounds through it than a NY whore. @ $900 , I fell this is the point of new or rebuild from scratch. I will admit , I have never build a scratch rifle . I feel there is a precipise to cross from factory........ vs........ new construction = $. The question was " Which one" w/ the facts presented. Scopes are worth a nickel if its a damn good one. What else will $900 buy ???? NEW Savage , Weatherby, Kimber, etc. for the money ??? I pondered this very question on a Built SS, 7mm Rem. action & barrel w/muzzle brake , glass stock for $700- no scope? It wasn't there long... Gut Instinct!!!!! Go figure.

Thanks for your professional input. I think the .338 and the .300 win Mag were both deasent deals. But hey that is just me. The gun action, bolt face, chamber look in great shape, don't even look like it has been used, also came with 95rd of spent .338 Lapua factory brass in the boxes and 100 new pieces of new factory .338 Lapua brass worth $290.00 and the paperwork, receipt of all that was done on the rifle (gun was built 14 months ago). So I think It was a deal. If the gun was not a good deal I don't think the gunsmith would of bought it.

Why would I want a to drive rusted out car when I can buy a new Cadillac for less?

No, the .338 Lap was the custom Hart build and the Ruger MKll .300 in blue was NIB.
