Okay, I've made up my mind to build a .30-06 from an action, or barrelled action (and probably a very basic synthetic stock). This will be a project that my Dad (83) and I will create together. Very basic.
If YOU were going to build up a 30-06 (from scratch) what exactly would you use, and who would be your best sources for the action or barrelled action? Or would you just try to sporterize an old military -06? Or would you maybe convert something else? Mauser? It's Gotta be 30-06 when I'm finished...whatever I start with.
So, what MOST BASIC action/barreled action should I get Dad started with? Does anyone have any good advice/sources?
