Re: B-78 octogan 22/250
earlier in the week I looked at a 25-06 Hi-Wall at a local gunshop. The rifle looked unfired, or else he did the absolute best cleaning job man has ever known! It had Leupold bases, but no rings and there were some marks where he twisted off the rings. Otherwise the rifle was as new. They wanted $1300 and it was not all that bad of a price. Then the owner came over and told me he'd take $1150 case for it! I've been pondering this thing all week long as a guy just can't have enough 1885's in his safe! I don't think it's ever had a round chambered in it as there was no sign of brass on the extractor, and the bore showed zero signs of ever being fired.
