One issue is that you can buy a complete gun, for what the price of a barrel! And that's assuming you have the correct bolt for the caliber! If you don't have the correct bolt, it's probably over $400 for a caliber.!
Hello forum. I'm from West Central Pa., new to forum and hope to learn lots from the membership here and help others if I can. I'm new to longer range shooting and haven't done much but would like to learn and get involved.
