Thanks for the comment enysse!
It was fun doing it but I'm way too slow to ever make money at it. It's just nice to look in the gun case and say "Hey, I made that!". May not be world class but it's classy enough for me. BTW, it started out as a 30-06 Rem 700! Next time I'd use a pretapered short chambered barrel. I'd love to have the $1500 in tools that Harry Potterfield has in his Rem 700 action truing utube. That is the way to do it!
You said you'd like something different? Why not take a lever rifle along w/ your .375 BLR has them in .7mm or 7 WSM, .300 Win. or .300 WSM, or , to get really cool, . 325 WSM. They all come in takedown models as well
i shot a nice dugga boy in Zim last summer w/ my BLR rebarelled in .375 Ruger. many PH's haven't seen or shot lever rifles. They are real head turners!
