Re: 7mm Dakota build
My wording was a little off ,i was trying to convey that i'm using this action,stock and adl set-up.
And by saying i don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on the action -i meant i don't want to replace firing pin assembly ,lug ,trigger -this shroud that extractor -bushed this -pinned that etc-etc---you know!I'd just get a custom action.
I've looked at the AI's ,hawks and rocky gibbs improvements on the 06 case BUT i have a 25-06 that is still pounding out bullets accurately it will be one of those improved versions someday soonish.
The adl 270 shoots like a champ but i just can't warm up to the 270 so i thought i'd have a basic square-up and rebarrel.
I want more umphh than the 7 wsm
-want to use the adl magazine without the bullets buried into the case.I'll have to replace the spring follower i guess -06 case too skinny.
So the dakota is the only cartridge i know of that can do that.Dakota has great brass also.
