Than use the living hell out of it like your grand dad did, and would want you to.

I see that as a respectful tribute to the rifle and the man.

I like your attitude man. Any thoughts on twist rates though?

    I personally would do whatever I though my grandfather wanted me to do with the rifle.

    I agree with Coyboy, use it and honor the man who used that rifle before you. A 1in9 twist is what that cartage should use with the bullets you are intending to shoot. I have my Dad's Pre 64 Model 721 Remmy 06, I shoot the heck out of it. My Uncle has his Pre 64 Model 70 243 & his Dad's Pre 64 Model 70 264 Win Mag, shoots them both. Good Luck and Good Shooting,

    Ranger Jim

    Rebarrel it and Cowboy (JIM SEE)would be a good guy to do the work.
    By the way, are there two different cowboy's on this thread?
