its been a while since i posted, but i found a rifle for sale
i think is a great buy and i thought id run it by you guys. benchrest stock with the thumbhole and flat forearm (no barrel channel), mauser action, douglas xx 26' barrel, 1:10 twist, double triggers, and a nikon buckmaster 6-18x40 with a sunshade. its chambered in .308. barrel was put on by a real good gunsmith in the area, and its had exactly 10 rounds fired. first 5 with break-in paste (assuming jb, but i didnt ask) and a 5 shot group. its sat in the safe for 5 years. im going to pick it up this afternoon, but whats a reasonable price to pay for this?
i would like to re-chamber this to RUM. i think a mag bolt will run RUM? when the barrel is off, i will have it ported by a local guy who does incredible portwork. is the re-chambering a good idea? im not well versed in this stuff. i do a lot of shotgun work, mostly 10ga barrel modifying, and lots of 10ga loading. rifles are a different anumal, and id love all the input you could give. thanks
