Re: Re-Chamber or Not? Choices, Choices, what would yours be?
Not a lot that I can add to the excellent posts of Jerry and others, but here are a couple more
You mention using this rifle for game up to moose and bear.
If you want to stay on the same bolt face you basically are limited to:
Then the ultra mag cases if you are willing to singleshot it (probably not aplicable in a hunting rifle)
Which end of the spectrum are you more comfortable shooting a bear with?
if youve got the cases around, Id say, get a matchgrade tube screwed in, stuff it with some heavies, and let her fly. Rem action in a A5, with a 28"ish barrel throwing 220SMKs would be a sweet combo, and will reach a long, long way.
