Thoughts on a 1903-A3
A question for the smiths.
I got a sporterized 1903-A3 with the original 2 grove barrel, that's just not shooting all that well any more. I've been considering whether or not to have it rebarreled in 30-06 or something different.
Here lately I've been pulling toward a .338 cal, and the more I think about it the more I lean toward the 338 Win mag.
I'm fully aware of all the modifications that will be require to go from a std case to mag case, opening of feed rails, as well as modifing the extractor.
I already have a Rem 700 in 30-06, so I'd like to use the A3-03 action for something different.
The rifle was made in June of 1943, S/N 3,7XX,XXX.
So, what are your thoughts? Yea or Nea?
