I've posted a few times recently re. 358NM loads, barrel twist etc.
Heres the rifle.
A fine fellow and good friend here recently gifted me this Voere Cougar in 308 NM.
To make a long story short, said fine fellow is a long time buddy with Aussie ex-pat barrel making legend Bevan King.
He was able to convince Bevan to take on the re-barrel (ok, it didn't take much convincing as Bevan is a .35 cal afficianado).
This is the result.
Its a beauty, and will certainly always have a special place in the safe given who gave it to me, and the spirit in which it was given.
Besides being tools, I have always found old rifles are even more interesting if they have a good story behind them.
Now it just needs a good recoil pad
