Re: Montana Rifleman Actions/Barrels

All good advice fellas, thank's loads. I'd gladly base my project on a LH SA Rem. 700 action if I could find one. I'm pretty sure they used to offer SA 700s in .243 & .308 but now they sell a SA LH 700V but I hate to "part out" a new rifle, and I don't really want a varmint/BR style of stock.
About the rumored .300 WSSM, won't it end up (depending how "S" it gets) about the same as the .260 Rem.?

Re: Montana Rifleman Actions/Barrels

I have some info from Winchester on the WSSM and they are even bringing out a new supershort action for this sucker - the actions are 1/2 inch shorter than existing WSM's (Browning is also doing a super short action). Will come out in the Coyote configuration with a 24" barrel, others are 22 inches.
OL's for the .22 and .24 are 2.36", the case length of the .22 is 1.670", probably the same for the .24.
They are showing the new cartridge compared to the .22-250 and .223 of course, imagine the performance will be closer to the .22-250. No ballistics info in their initial handouts.

WSSMs are not final tested yet. Winchester is still modifiying the reamers and testing. Dave Kiff is still sending different reamers to them as of yesterday. Josh project mgr at Win said testing will not be done and decision made until late Nov with announcement at shot show. BRcentral had pictures of dummy cartridges and box for shot show photos. Win is really PO'd that someone leaked the photos.

Re: Montana Rifleman Actions/Barrels

Will Winchester sell just the Action? I've been thinking about a new project based on the WSSM coyote, but I hate to buy a new rifle and throw away the barrel and stock.

Bounty,
I got a nice press-kit from their ad agency with transparencies, drawings and lots of info, well prepared material. Also was told at the last SHOT show that these were in the works, by an engineer for Win. You figure they sent the info kits because of a leak?
Tim,
Winchester does not sell actions, just don't happen. Understand only one person gets them and he is a gunsmith who works for them on design projects, nobody else. Builds very high dollar rifles on actions that he does magic to.

Re: Montana Rifleman Actions/Barrels

Well so much for the idea of getting by at a minimal expense. I hate the thought of spending that much money on a Wildcat that may not work.

Coyote Gods has pictures of the new Rounds and their boxes too. I've heard as couple of other places showing them too. I guess good news travels fast.
