    I've quit doing Sako extractors on those and switched to ptg's mini-16. It works a lot better and can't blow out. Pretty much the same thing as what new Howas come with.
    As for the 338-06, I'm another believer. I had Norm Johnson rebore my rotted out 1903 barrel to 1:15 twist and shoot a paper patched bullet Accurate made for me, 210 grains. It's plenty accurate and would be fine for hunting pretty much anything.

    Well now my works cut out for me - The latest addition has a nice shinny 4 groove.
    Now to let the weather improve and get to the range for some testing.
    I'll clean and measure the 4 groove in the mourning and load some test stuff and see
    who gets sent of for the face lift.

    You'll love that cartridge. I had Jess rebore a perfectly good, brand new in fact, Remington Model 700 a number of years ago. I opted for the Improved version.

    Also, took a perfectly good, also new '95 in 270, and had The late Richard Nickel rebore it, but into a 35 Whelen. It did work and "is" a cool gun!
