Re: Savage or another ML for shooting over 200 yards
and if your funds are tight or you can't find the Rem ML to convert or the Savage. Take your ole single shot NEF or H&R rifle or shotgun and send it SMI for $375 they'll install a Douglas 45 or 50 caliber smokeless barrel up to 28" and you can request what twist.
Mine is a NEF or was a 20 ga and has a 24" barrel 1-20 twist. I do have a Savage but it was $700.00 and doesn't have a custom barrel.
