Kicking around an idea.
Been thinking lately about building something cool/different for myself since I rarely use my skill and profession for my own benefit and the other thread about what new guns do you want got me thinking about it. I have a bunch of different rifles that I could use the action from, including a Remington 700 long action but I have a crazier idea. I have an old bag of **** Mosin Nagant 91/30 with a shot out barrel that I’m contemplating rebarreling for 500S&W magnum, just because. I’m no hunter but I think it would be pretty neat and won’t really require too much effort on my part. Those old actions are definitely strong enough and the bolt face should work as is because the rim is only .011 smaller than the 7.62-54r. I may have to rework the extractor but that’s no big deal either. I’m thinking 1:19 twist 20” stainless bbl from a blank as I usually contour them. Thoughts?
