Now there's an idea to toy with.
Have you done that, personally?
I have a two of the " new" model 70 in 3006 and 375 and there awesome. I just wish the people and winchester would build a 404 jeffery or a 416 rigby on this action!
If you want a rifle to tinker with go the CZ if you want a well built rifle with no tinkering go the Model 70
That's a badass rifle that looks like me !. At 8.1 lbs bare. I don't like muzzle brakes either, but as they screw on and off, the suppressor is a given.My vote for an 06 would go to the Ruger Guide Gun. It may not be the prettiest gun in the world but it will do the job and last for several lifetimes. With it's 20" barrel and it's adjustable length of pull stock it will handle great and will fit anyone. The stainless steel construction makes field maintenance a breeze. It come with the barrel threaded and a muzzle brake for the recoil sensitive shooter, I chose to go with a suppresser, to save what little hearing I have left. Good luck with your decision making, that's a big part of the fun.View attachment 58059
I'm pretty confident I'm wanting a CZ550 for the 375 based on everything I've read so with that said, should I also get a 30-06 CZ so the feel/action/operation/balance/etc are the same across both rifles??? I don't mind paying a little more and have even considered the AHR Big Game version of the CZ as I'm really eyeing their Dangerous Game version of the 375.
Thanks for mentioning Blaser.If you are into several calibers in the future, also you could consider system rifles like Blaser R8/R93, Mauser M03, Merkel Helix or Sauer.
And practice and practice and practice at the range
