    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Now all you need is a dental check up and a strap to tie your hat on.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Haha thought about it. Did see Rigby dies but they were expensive. I saw the Rem dies early on and passed but took note . But one of the last booths had Rem brass for under $1/pc so I saw it as a sign. I've also been looking at a barrel on a "misc list" that someone ordered and then didn't buy, already cut for a 98, in a Remington Magnum contour, SS for $200. I want to go with a synthetic stock for this, a synthetic Rigby or Jeffery just seemed..... wrong. Rem Mag? For some reason a SS/Tupperware combo makes sense. Plus I can get 5 rounds in the magazine, Rigby probably would've been 3, maybe 4 with work

    I worked in West Africa in Liberia in 1969-1970. I had to fly through Nigeria, which is also in West Africa and they were at Civil War then. I was young and single then so thank God there wasn't any Ebola or especially AIDES at that time, or YET!

    As for the Magnum Action being big, I can vouch for that. I've got one regular 06 length action that I'm mounting the barrel that MileHigh Shooter sent me on it. That thing is Big so I imagine the Magnum one is HUGE!

    I know where you can get your favorite caliber barrel for your next build!

    "This is a stainless Shilen #2 contour barrel in .270 that has been threaded for a large Ring 98 Mauser and short chambered in .270 Winchester
    Match grade and lapped"

    The nicest place to be is in someone's thoughts,
    the safest place to be is in someone's prayers,
    and the very best place to be is....in the hands of God.

    My present gun smith has a couple of tricks to improve Mauser Lock Time. One is putting in a stronger firing pin spring. He built two of my sporter Mausers, a .257 AI and one he left the Mil spec barrel on in 8x57. I also have a .280 built on a 98 made by another smith. The bolt on it is noticeably easier to manipulate than the two my present smith built me.

I thought it was the sewer system or something. Then I discovered what I was smelling was pallets of raw rubber. Raw rubber smells just like that.
