B-78 octogan 22/250

I picked this beauty up today for a good price and think it is probably worth at least $1300. What do you guys think? It is near new condition and has some of the best wood I've seen in one......Rich ( It has an octagonal barrel, not an "octo"!) B-78 octogan 22/250-dscf0292.jpg

    thats purdy, guess you need to make some .224 cal sxr's . The 22-250 is probably the most fun prarie dog caliber out there. What twist barrel?

    Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    so it can stabalize around 55 grain and under bullets, does that sound about right?

    You might want to look at the 52 grain speer hp flat base bullets, they are scary accurate out of our howa 22-250 and make a fun show of pdogs.
