    Please post your project as you progress on it; particularly the barrel regulation. One more thing; you'll be tempted to shoot rifles weak side- wait till your doc says ok. I shot my 25-06 once and it jarred my money shoulder BAD.
    Good luck!
    Thanks for the tips. Froze up shoulder oh no Joy lol. Yes, a high recoil rifle on the weak side could really shock/twist the right side I guess.

    I am going to be 69 pretty soon. I have gone through the 45-70 and big rifle thing and decided I do not need them. Tried a 243 for a couple of yeas and it is an enjoyable low recoil rifle to shoot. Now have a 6.5 Creedmoor and think it will be my deer rifle. Low recoil and so far I have seen excellent performance on deer. Were I hunting bigger game maybe I would use a bigger rifle, but I would not be too afraid to try a 223 on deer if the need arose.
