Re: day dreamin

Look up the 240 Gibbs and the 243 catbird. Both are pretty much what you are thinking of.

Re: day dreamin

With the short barrel check out the 243 AI. Barrel life is longer. I have the 240 gibbs and 6mm-06 improved along with a few more.

Re: day dreamin

Most of mine are built on long actions to seat the long heavy vld type bullets way out there and feed well through the action. With standard length bullets it works fine with a short action.
