But he made a grand entrance..........

This must prove life does run in circles. I started out my handloading way back in the mid 1980`s, some of you were not born yet, and the first bolt action rifle I had was a Remington 700 30/06 Classic. Well, I stumbled across this for sale, and it was all over.
"A" prefix action, Krieger barrel, McMillan stock, with many other goodies in 1 package.
I will have to sell off some stuff to pay ole Santa, but it is very well worth it to me.
The throating is perfect for 150/165 bullets. Looks like I`m gonna keep Nosler in business for a while.

Thats one nice looking gun!

I have never been a 30-06 fan, I guess it's because the first three or four 30-06's I had experience with were Remington 742's, they were very inaccurate compared to bolt guns. I realize most modern 30-06's shoot good, it's just a mental thing. My first bolt action was a Sigarms SHR970 in 308 and I fell in love with that caliber. Go figure, I guess thats the reason some people like Ford or Chevy based on experience. If that first 30-06 would been a tack driver I would probably be a 30-06 disciple.

Thanks.......

I`d call the 30/06 kind of boring with all the new cases out there to try, and there are some real dandys now a days.

All the 06`s I ever fooled with by Remington were extremely long throated.
I asked the owner to send me specs of his ammo with a bullet seated to the lands and I assembled a dummy case at home to duplicate that.
This rifles throat is perfect.
Don`t sell the 06 short on accuracy. It is a good one.

Nice rig. I really like the stock especially. I've only owned a couple of 30-06s in my lifetime and I still have both of them. One's a sporterized 1917 Enfield in Walnut and the other's a 1903 Springfield in Walnut. The old Springfield still has the factory barrel with 2 line rifling in it but it still shoots to 1 moa so I haven't touched it. It's an old well made rifle with a good walnut classic stock with ebony cheekpiece and front ramp sight with nice checkering but lots of wear. I kinda hate to change it. I'd love to know it's history.

Tell Santa to stop by my house if you see him again.

Thanks Tiny,

The picture is from ones the owner sent me via e-mail, so the snow is from land far away. I haven`t sent off funds yet, and am chomping at the bit. I hope to have it by this time next week, or very shortly thereafter.
