That's a neat dip. I'm still contemplating the finish...

Re: Model 70 rifle build

I am building for myself a .264 Win Mag on Pre-64 Model 70, with a 26" Muller Works #5, Fluted Sporter, 1:877, 4 groove. The factory trigger has been replaced with a Jewell trigger. The Stock will be a McMillian Winchester Varminter. The Model 70 is a heavier action than the Remington 700. It has a flat bottom and integral recoil lug. Every Pre-64 I have built was a real shooter.

Re: Model 70 rifle build

Maiden voyage. I still have to do the rest of the barrel break in and I've been looking at load data for 208 amaxes with either 210m or 215m primers and h4350,h1000, or 4831.

Any combo suggestions ? In particular any one have experience with the 26" tube?
