    Would be very interested in it if you want to sell - looking to get a bolt action but was leaning toward a 308.

    The SPC chamber may or may not be a factor in accuracy. Reaming to SPCII will allow better pressure specs but the SPC chamber in a bolt gun will still accept higher pressures than the AR platform. Mine was reamed to SPCII before I bought it however.

    I will put the LTR up on the EE after I check it closely for all those interested.

    The biggest difference (for a bolt action) between the ARP barreled Savage and the Remmy 700 P is really the rifling - twist rate and rifling style. The chamber does play in, but certainly not as much as in an auto loader.

    I'm still very much interested to see which rifle likes which load, I doubt the 2 rifles will do well with the same exact load, same projectile and case.

    Someone on this forum kept after me to buy it and it is being shipped to his FFL. The rifle cleaned up pretty good and looks to be in great shape.

    Default Just got word on my McGowen Barrel

    I just got the email from McGowen Precision Barrels that my 6.8 barrel in on the way and They are also including a $97 refund for an overpayment. I think I'm most excited about getting this refund more than the tube, for a company to do that says a lot about the company in my opinion because how would a customer even know that they are being overcharged unless you are dealing with an honest business operator. A big Kudos to McGowen!

    How much higher pressure will a bolt gun take over an AR? I would think the signs of pressure at the primer would not change?
