I have a hobbie that has been ongoing for 30 years or so taking the Springfield Action and building what my friends and relitives in Ontario say...a bush rifle...How many of you own and or use one as your primary Hunting Rifles. All of mine are .3006 with Douglas Barrels and work fantasic! It's easy to get 3 shots around 3/4 at 100 yards. They make great Moose rifles...Elk? no problem. Deer phewwww! they don't have a chance. Bear it's the same way.
