Re: Well then what?
Just as an example I went to Gander Mountain the other day and purchased a Remington BDL in 300 RUM (left hand) for about $500. I also got a Remington BDL in 338 RUM for the same price. I know they have some aged inventory Remington BDL's (right hand) in several cals for the same price.
The Remington BDL I have right now in 300 RUM shoot very very well. I had all sorts of plans for the gun but it shoots so well I have just had a trigger job done to it and left it alone. The new ones I purchased will get worked over. The BDL stock is not something I like so I will replace it.
There are so many options when you rebarrel a gun. SAvage is also a good way to go. I am partial to Remington but many people love their savages as well.
