Re: building a new rifle
Thanks , Gene.
I currently have a light weight 7mm08, and looking to build a spare( I like to take 2 guns on a out of state trip, atleast) thus my reason for the caliber, to keep things simple.
I like flutted looks of them, and agree no real reason to buy other than looks, and a very small amout of lighter weight!
I had my first one built, and ordered a flutted barrel, but when I got the call the gun was ready, the smith put the WRONG barrel on it, and nOT a flutted barrel as I wanted,
But I took the gun to his range, and shot it, and was almost a one hole shooter,( and still is) as IS!
He offeder to swap the barrel for me, but it shot so good, I couldn't justify doing so. firm believer in don't screw with something that works !
and ever since then, I have wanted what I had ordered, it has been itching at me you can say,
so my quest to build another one, with what I want is now getting the better of me, need to get it out of my system, and who doesn't need another rifle?
Keep the ideas coming guys, I will not be building till late spring, so be open to hear what you all think till then.
