Just a thought, maybe not.
My first shooting and reloading was for an 8X57 given to me by my Uncle. I since had it rechambered to the 8MM/06. I really like the performance and to this day, even after adding many other calibers to my gun safe, it still remains my pet.
I recently had a 260 Rem rechambered for the WSM case with good success, And I also own a Win Mod 70 Coyote in the 7MM WSM
Thus my thinking is to build an 8MM based on the WSM in a sporter type of rifle. I am also thinking that this would be a good fit with the 180 gr Barnes X for distances out to 500 yds on most game.
Am I dumb or what? Please feel free to chastise me [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] my wife does all the time. But I need to have a spring project to get to whistle pig time.
Thanks for any thoughts and or advice.
