I PLAN TO REBARREL MY PRE-64 MODEL 70
FROM 264 MAG TO A 338 WIN MAG WITH 30" BARREL

I HAVE HEARD THAT THE 338 BULLETS ARE NOT
AS ACCURATE AS 308 BULLETS IS THIS TRUE?????

AS FAR AS THE CONVERSION BOTH CALIBERS
HAVE THE SAME BASE SIZE .5320 AND OVERALL
BRASS HEIGHT OF 2.5"
SO THE BOLT FACE WILL NEED NO MODIFICATIONS
RIGHT??????

Sorry on a Pre-64 I'd think you'd be better to buy a new rifle than make the conversion.

If you have an old converted Mauser or something once alreay changed, go for it, but
I bet your value for a Pre-64 will go to heck with a new barrel.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
