Having it built.
Took the old model 70 into McGowen Precision Barrels today to have it re-barreled today.
Having them build a 24", #4 taper, 8.5 twist, fluted, stainless barrel, in 6.5-06 Ackley imp.
They should have it done in about 4 weeks.
Does anyone know if I can buy the dies from Redding or RCBS, or will I need to send them the drawing of the reamer to have the dies built?
I'm excited, this should be a great rifle for my son for years to come. Although, he has to shoot his 1st deer with the same 30-30 that I shot my 1st deer with. When he has a son, I will give my son the 30-30 so he can continue the tradition.
Thanks for all the help everyone, Steve
To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
