Have you considered rechambering a Winchester 70? I think you will be money ahead and happier with the rifle IME.

When I had mine done, Ruger’s were $2000 ish in good condition.

Win 70 458 Win Mag - $1200
-Rechamber
- mag work, maybe bolt stop adjust, check feeding....
-shorten to 22” and recrown
- Replace sights with NECG sights
-adjust trigger to 3 lb
-Add Limbsaver pad

I think I’m right at $2000 with the great fit of a Winchester 70!

That’s what I did. Danny Pedersen with Classic Barrel in Prescott extended the chamber. Local smith did the mag work. Prolly $700 all in IIRC

If you haven't found one yet, I have one in excellent condition.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?
