Watching how easy it is to swap barrels from a T3 I’d like to build a “do it all” rifle. The thing is I can’t find a Magnum Bolt for it anywhere. I managed to find someone who has some STD bolt face bolts for sale and was wondering if Incould open it up without having extraction (or any other) issues.

You'll have issues, it's better to go buy the cheapest magnum tikka of gunbroker and use that than go through the frustration of opening a bolt and dealing with the extractor issues.

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
