April,Ben, have the Ackley, Gibbs, Newton, Whelen stuff all fallen out of favor ?
He liked those reworked Husqvarna Mauser actions-- have they also fallen out of favor ?
My thoughts about the 300 H & H was mostly and simply because it has been one of my favorite calibers through the years and if you find one manufactured by winchester in 1950 it might have 300 Magnum and their logo stamped on the barrel -if it is one of those , it might be worth keeping as they didn't make a lot of them --but again a lot of my reasoning on this one is my love for that particular caliber.
I just thought of another difference between now and then. There was a lot of cheap 30-06 ammo around, the cases for the Gibbs might not be as easy to come by now or as cheap anyway.
However, I might be remembering incorrectly--it is happening more and more these days. I really hate old age lol
Ben or anyone ?
