Re: WTB: Savage .260 Rem action
Ok, this brings me to a new dilema... I have a 10FP in .308 with no bells and whistles; just the stock .308. I bought it thinking that I would be shooting deer out to 600 yards.
However, now living in eastern PA, I rarely get a shot at over 200. Plus, it weights a metric friggin' ton hauling it around the woods on my back. On top of all of this, *shameful sigh*, I'm a little gun shy. That .308 has some snot behind it, and I think, no, I know, I would shoot better knowing that the rifle wasnt going to rock my shoulder (Yea, I flinch ometimes. Am I the only one?).
Do you all think that I could simply replace my 24" Heavy .308 barrel with a Shilen .260 Rem barrel (which is why I wanted the action, anyway)? I think that I can sell it for a little savings, too.
What do you all think? Please, let me know! Thanks!
