    I am thinking of rebarreling one of my rifles to 300 Win mag. I had one a while back and really liked it. Post a photo of your rifle if you get a chance and do let us know as you walk her out to distance.

    Sorry for the late reply. Here is my baby

    She is a Weatherby vanguard bedded in a boyds thumbhole with a millet buck gold 6-25 x56 scope. I love this gun and love shooting it.
