It ain't in my budget either, but its'd be cool to have.:-D

You'll never convince me that it will shoot a whole case of bullseye with a soldered in place bullet (in 30-06 original configuration) and beat a Jap Arisaka in strenght...nope Mr Hatcher, just don't believe it.
May be cool, but why not just buy a Browning Bar which is already made in 338 mag?

THe big BAR?
I would LOVE to own one of those!
Can't have it in comunist California.. :roll:

I remember reading that claim for the Garand action, and it seemed like a great way to waste a good platform to me. But what do I know? I do think the BAR x 338 Win Mag is a better use of a lot less money.
Da, Tovarich Marlin--in People's Republic, the proletariat CAN own the self-loading rifle Starmetal mentions, it is sporting rifle without vertical gripping surface or flash hider that makes gun neculturniya in PRC.

I'll have to take a look at a Garand next time I see one somewhere. See how much meat is on that front receiver ring and see what size the lugs are compared to a Arisaka bolt. Remember Jumptrap had a hard time blowing up a round receiver Mosin Nagant and he had to use a case full of Bullseye and even at that it only swelled the chamber and never broken or cracked the bolt lugs. The bolt didn't blow open either. I'd wonder what a Garand would do with a case full of Bullseye and to make the test fair remove the gas block and then the action is like a bolt action without the bolt trying to open. Of course it may blowup before the bullet gets past the gas port hole anyways, who knows.

Here's an interesting page on the M1...and the M14 and M1 carbine if you follow the links:

Pretty slick. I think the writer is mistaken, however, in his comments about stiffening a rod. Drilling out the center or fluting won't do it unless the amount of material in the rod remains the same.

ya, i caught that too
