Ok, so I have a 1955 721 300 H&H, all original wood ect.... It shoots great! Really it does, 168g TSX rounds do great in it.
It was grandpa's first iron but I'd love to hunt AK with it. I'd like it as a light weight long range mountain gun set up. (no more than 600yrds)
Should I have the barrel turned to lighten it or would I be better off going with a new stainless barrel?
Would a new trigger be necessary?
I know I'd like a light weight custom stock.
Can this bolt be spiral fluted?
Would it be helpful to Parkerize or use some other kind of coating on the all steel action?
What gunsmith would take on a project like this?
I'm thinking about doing this one in 2012. I know it might be wiser or cheaper to buy new but it was grandpa's and I'd like to keep it in service.
Please feel to educate me. This is the first time I've ever worked on a project like this. Another thing I considered is the 300 H&H AI round. I handload and recall seeing it somewhere.
