Ive got a pile of Winchesters. I love em. I wanted to build on one with a claw extractor also, but I just couldnt bring mysef to...........At least not when I have a Model-70 Win, chambered in 300wby with a controled round feed to build on
It will be my first build also, I just need the $ to get serious about it with a smith.
Right now Im a ''mid range shooter'' with both the 300wby and a 270wsm.(600+ I practice and play to 850 now) and hand load for both. Still 600 seems to be my max consistantly effective range. I gotta get better at reading wind.
The only things Ive ever hered of to wach for with the C.R.F.was when loaded too hot and a case gets stuck, the claw grabbs better(more surface area?)
And Ive hered of 1 C.R.F. claw in the front of the bolt that broke off (factory defect?) its never happened to any of mine.
GOOD LUCK, and i wanna see pictures!
