$1250 is indeed a lofty ask....there is a M70 New Haven 416 Rem on GI right now for $990. That's a good buy.
My opinion with missing parts and such $900 is the upper range BUT all it takes is a buyer who wants that rifle and it will sell for the full ask.
Ran into a well known outfitter in the Alaskan bush while hunting browns. He had a client flying into the same area I was hunting in the next few days if I recall correctly and essentially wanted me to leave the drainage. Had a good discussion with him and his saying has stuck with me ever...
If you need contacts from ND I can help ya, as there are several. We did ours in Oklahoma and the boss keeps telling me we need another as she loves bison ribeyes.
High majority or bison hunts are priced off age class.
If I do it again, I will do a reservation hunt back home in ND or MT. Prices...
Been using 250gr Grand Slams with H4350 pushing them in the 2600fps and also 250gr Partitions.
The GS group a bit better in both of my 338s but the elk, deer and bear sure didn't notice the difference between the two bullet choices. Both efficient killers imo.
Besides mauling the gun auction sites, I've been spending serious amounts of time at the reloading bench working up loads.
Every Friday it's 3-4hrs of range time testing said loads.
Toss in a few fishing and local hunting trips and that about rounds out what the last few months have looked like...
Assuming its 95%+ condition and taking into account your missing rear ramp, I'd put it around
If you do purchase I may have a rear sight you can have. Just let me know.
In the end it's a Winchester with CRF and came out of New Haven plant, winner if you ask me!
Few years back I had to do a formal essay on the Civil War. Being one that looks for facts and not opinions passed off as facts, I begun researching by reading as many books supported by copies of Union and Confederate Soldiers' written letters to their families back home.
I was amazed that a...
I actually enjoyed the OPs post as it brought back the memories of how I/we (my family) used to hunt and I will be back home for deer season and greatly looking forward to it. Going to have to get a fixed 4 or 6x out and mounted up on one of the 270s or '06s.
I guess I'm one that strayed from the "norm" of how I was brought up hunting. We used horses as our mode of travel when I was young but progressed to an old Scout that lived in tire chains to get us up and down the mountain cattle paths. We wore insulated overalls or what we call snowmobile...
Extremely informative and went great. Found that having numerous members online allowed for first hand client/hunter perspectives throughout the meeting.
Great job Nathan and look forward to further meetings.
