Re: My new .30 Wolf...

Texas

I don't think it is a fair comparison, not apples to apples. The way I see it, someone would choose the tomahawk because they do not want to enlarge the bolt face of an action they own, but want more powder capacity for higher performance with Ultra long barrels.

The Wolf is more accurate, for a number of reasons. The quality of the brass, the quality of the actions, the shape of the powder column, the anti-torque brake has a significant impact on accuracy because of its affect on barrel harmonics and its affect on the human pulling the trigger.

The threaded barrel joint is different (no details so don't ask). The Wolf comes with a 1/3 Moa Guarantee because it is assembled and machined in a better way, and it probably costs $300 dollars more than a Tommy built on the same action with the same stock.

Few give a 1/3 MOA guarantee with a big cartridge because it is not easy to do. We have figured out how, and it takes a little more work, and costs a little more, but for someone concerned about accuracy past 1,000 yards, it is worth it. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

The brake is about 1.200" O.D. and the barrel is about .990" near the muzzle.

It takes about 3 to 4 weeks. Bolt guns are less then semi - autos. Guns have to be disassembled. And it is best to do a bolt action before bedding, because it saves time. It can still be done after bedding but it is very time consuming.

Bolt guns run about 80 dollars less than the AR variety.

BOLT ACTION-- $280.00 WITH SCOPE AND RINGS.

The pictures do not do them justice even though they are great quality. They look even better in person.
