    very wrong. I have a push feed 308 lightweight carbine and a 250 savage lightweight carbine with are both post 64 push feed short action guns. Ordered them both new the same day. The 250s were kind of rare as only 500 were made. I got them somewhere around 1985 and they were having a rebate at the time. I paid 250 bucks a piece for them and got a 50 dollar rebate on each. Should have bought 10 of them! By the way both are moa guns. Heres one in 243 https://www.gunsinternational.com/gu...n_id=100940861

    Sorry about that. After 1984 when USRA took over, they brought out a push feed short action. My mistake. I only used Remingtons and Mausers back then so I didn’t notice.

    Hey that's my rifle, first rifle I ever bought 1975, I had it in lay away at local gun shop along with a Weaver 3x9 wideview scope ,Redfield jr. bases and rings, 30.06 still have it.
    I free floated the barrel, adjusted the trigger, I can cover 3 shots with a dime with its favorite load, pretty much any ammo will shoot under 1.5 in. Its heavy but its my favorite meat gun.

    Lloyd, Iíve got one of those push feed shot action Model 70ís too. But mineís in .225. Itís got one of the nicest pieces of walnut Iíve seen on a factory rifle. Have taken it on a couple of prairie dog shoots and it will do the job.

    Any bolt .30-'06 which feeds and goes bang with factory ammo in which the bullets don't keyhole at 100 yards is worth that.

    Some smart guy scarfed it up! You'll be kicking yourself for years to come, what was I thinking.
    Hell, I was there!

If it was around here it would be home already.
    I agree with Lloyd 100% here. Too bad it's gone. I was about to ask the Pawn Shop location.....

    I could never understand the allure of "controlled round feed" over the simple push feed. I always liked being able to drop a round on top of the magazine follower and chambering that round...notably one time when I just got done unloading my rifle at the truck and a deer made an appearance. I was too slow, my brothers got it.
