I was thinking about building a 338-06. I don't need one... just thought it would be interesting to play with...
A friend has a 1949-1950 era M-70 standard that has been re-bored to 338-06. It was a 30-06. The stock is probably 85% and the metal 85-90 %. I am weighing the options.
It has been awhile since I have bought an action. The last couple rifles I built were from actions I have owned for several years.
