That was the one. I thought it had decent wood. Usually the inspection period is NO SHOOT. Mine starts with 760. Does that mean something other than vintage?
I had no problem with NO SHOOT, but wanted to know it would feed and needed cartridges for that.That was the one. I thought it had decent wood. Usually the inspection period is NO SHOOT. Mine starts with 760. Does that mean something other than vintage?
I do like your choice of calibers. I have multiples of all three of your calibers chosen. You should be well served.Well finally got through a number of "Honey Doo's" and got to mostly finish my 404 Jeffery. Just need to confirm that the iron sight are regulated. Got in the dies brass and bullets so I need to load some rounds up and get to the range It started off and a 375H&H Ruger RMS. I sent the action off to Pac-Nor to be rebarreled into a 404. They did a very good job. Since the RMS has the recoil system in it and the barrel has the step milled a lug second screw to provide a little pressure on the front lip of the stock. So I milles a small piece and fit/soldered it to the barrel. Soldered a NECG fron ramp and a dakota rear sight base and had it Cera-Koted and added a spacer and as thick a recoil pad as I could find to get close to my LOP. So my traditional three bolt gun battery is complete. 7x57 mauser, 9.3x62 parker hale project and not the 404 Ruger RMS.

Wow now that sounds like a deal!Action Bob. Have a deal for you After the email about reboring I talked to a gunsmith buddy and he recommended classic Barrel and Gun works in Prescott AZ, so I looked them up and gave them a call; http://www.cutrifle.com/reboring.html He has a turn around time of 75-90 days currently. So If you want I will send you the take off barrel and you can contact them and have your 404 Jeff barrel done. That way it keeps me from adding yet another project to my shop.
IdaRam, You have me thinking about the same possibility now. Bob, post those pics as soon as the rifle is finished......Does the same work for a M70 .375?That is dang fine of you AZDAVE! As a fellow RSM enthusiast I'm really happy to see you guys make this happen
ActionBob, I will be waiting and looking forward to hearing how this turns out. If you are happy with the results I may very well follow your lead and acquire another .375 RSM for this purpose.
