Re: 223/22 hornet length actions

i am all for a 700 foot print on actual short actions and long actions etc, great stock choices etc, but i hate the engineering of the action, the extractor, solid bolt head etc. i digress. i had considered a falling block, or break action but was concerned about accuracy issues with the scope being mounted over the barrel. a real concern? also, what about bipods, the short fore-end on a 85 stiff enough to lay on?

I don't know about Winchester, but Browning did a Lo-Wall in 22 Hornet and .223 Remington. I have a Lo-Wall in .223, and it's a pretty neat rifle.

Cute little devils if you can find one. Its been so long since I've seen one I thought maybe I imagined them when I first read this post.

I'm not positive, but I think they also offered that action in the 7.62x39 bolt face (PPC).

Zastava "Mini's" are listed on Century International Arms web site. Listed as "coming soon". Have been listed as "coming soon" for 8-9 months, maybe longer. The last ones, imported by Charles Daly, were pretty 'cheap' , IMO.

Re: 223/22 hornet length actions

just for ease of getting the project started, do you guys think that i would be able to get bolt accuracy out of a NEF Handi or TC encore? handi's are uber cheap and i can have my smith make up the stock i want, and my uncle has a tc i may be able to pry off of him, but this rig is going to be soley used to shoot squirrels and rabbits out to 300. headshots to be specific, i eat what ikill, no matter what, besides disease obviously lol. i have heard great things reguarding the accuracy of the round, one guy said that his particular rifle was getting 1 inches at250! my other concern is the barrel. i would like to go pac-nor, pretty set actually, but not sure if they will make barrles for tc or nef.
