Re: 223/22 hornet length actions
All the "inherent accuracy" on earth isn't going to turn a Handi-Rifle into a 300yd. shooter! You're "stepping over dollars to pick-up dimes". For all the money you think you're going to save by talking 'uncle' out of one of his break overs, your going to spend a bushel of $$$$$ getting someone to fit a custom barrel to that break over because of the lug on the bottom of the barrel. Seems to me , if you're set on that little wildcat, you're stuck with a CZ, a Savage, or a Ruger. Wake-up! Custom work, like you're suggesting isn't going to be cheap! Cheap components/methods give 'cheap' results.
