    This is probably in the wrong place but....

    We just got one of these things in and I am somewhat impressed w/the total package. Stock is nice, trigger is good, it is already setup as a repeater and the thing is not overly heavy (by my standards at least).

    Anyway, I was thinking of using one of these to fill my need(or want) for a carry weight rifle in 338 cal. Only problem is, the damn bbl is a 12" twist!! Why would they go and do that /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif? Since I was really wanting to shoot the 300 gr SMK this just won't work.

    I was thinking that if a guy could jerk the bbl off of it and sell it for a reasonable amount and then replace it w/one of those carbon wrapped jobs that are on special here, I could shave a pound or so and get a better bbl in the twist I want.

    Do you think someone would buy the factory tube and if so, a guess at what it would bring????
