When I was younger and I would bum a cigarette from my uncle, I would ask for a cigarette and his lighter. He would always respond, "It looks like all you have is the habit."
Well, the same goes here. I traded my old Savage 23 to some guy that offered me an ungodly sum of money that I could not turn down...So no 25/20...anymore.
Lately I have had the urge to get another, and have been looking, and looking. I would prefer a single shot. Maybe a new barrel for my contender frame?
In the current (July-Aug. 2009) Fouling Shot there is a question about 25/20(single shot) prefered length of barrel, and rate of twist when shooting plain based boolits. Ed responds by saying the longer the better, and a 1 in 12 twist is fine.
Does anyone have any suggestions, or advice? Should go with a new barrel for my Contender carbine? If not what action? Second, and third questions; what barrel length and rate of twist should I opt for? I will most likely be shooting Lyman 257205 or 283 in it.
What are your thoughts?
