    Only $345??? Hell, I'm in.


    The Krieger barrel I put on my .250 Savage cost me $325 about 6 years ago. It would probably cost about $375 now. That was a bead blasted stainless barrel.

    120 posts and no one has mentioned the .35 Whelen?

    Whelen on left, 30-06 on right. 30-06 is parent cartridge... 20 % more energy although not a real long range cartridge. Ballistic twin of the .35 Remington mag. Can be down loaded with .357 magnum bullets to lower velocity.

    I have a 30-06 in the safe waiting to be converted one day.

    My 700 Classic in .35 Whelen is one of my favorite hunting rifles but I didn't bring up the chambering because I had the impression that the OP was looking to build a long range snot slinger.

    He definitely needs to spend some quality range time with a rifle that will back him out from under his hat before deciding to invest in the time and expense to build one. About three boxes' worth of ammo just might bring about a moment of clarity about whether it was a good idea to shoot something that cripples and kills- - - -kills what's out front and cripples what's behind!

    6.5 06 it is fellas. Now, use my money in deciding a trigger.

    Timney is always my choice, but the trigger snobs will be speaking up in about 5- - - -4- - - -3- - - -2- - -

    I dropped a Timney into my Remingon 788. It is... light. I've kinda got to relearn how to use the trigger. I'd use them again.
    Overkill is underrated.

    Timney 1 1/2 - 4 lb w/safety can be had for a price that leaves money for other goodies and is easy to install. It has to be easy, I did it myself and it works perfectly.

    My Savage .338 Win. Mag. has a composite stock and weighs in at at almost 9 pounds with scope. It has a good quality recoil pad on it and I use a PAST shoulder protector, too. After 20 rounds, I'm done. That's why I only have 3 loads for it with 3 different bullets. If those three bullets won't do the job, drag out the .50 BMG. The .338 kills at both ends, but the .50 doesn't.
