Re: .308 mods....pics

Texas,

Yup.. it was... I'm not a real big guy and for as much shooting as I do.. I just pounded me.. even with the break. It isn't all that heavy .. only about 12 lbs scope and all.
I loved the gun but just really didn't fit into my style. I don't have anyone to hunt big game with the way LR guys really should. SO I limit myself to about 750ish. On the PD's you really can make a good go of it by yourself out to 1500 or so...

Cj and I have become pretty good frineds and we made a real good deal together and he is a little bit bigger than I.. ( maybe not taller ;-) )

I replaced it with a 243 AI, a 22-250 built for the 80 gr bullets and a 6mm AI with a 30" Kreiger for deer to 800.

I am working on a 6.5 WSM with Chris from GA Precision.

believe me I hated to see it go... but I know it is in good hands. CJ visits here enough that if I needed it.. I know I could get it for a hunt or 2.

Celt and Chris,
Thanks for the info,. I think it's a shame that mod has to be done in the first place. No doubt gives the owner confidence knowing that his bolt handle won't come off. Personally I have never seen a Rem bolt come apart, have only seen extractors go to hell.

Guess that makes all the more work for you folks.
