I believe that the afore mentioned jam coyote hunting would not have occurred with a mauser type bolt face.

There is a reason the Model 70 is preferred by PH's in Africa and they often use pre 64 Model 70's when they were not using drillings or other break action type rifles.

RMFC its great that you love Big Green. Just be willing to admit the facts of their design flaws to your self.

I would never own another Remington. But I don't have to shoot your game, you do that. Your a big boy.

Ignoring the facts does not change the facts.

My dad has a pre 64 model 70 30-06 from my grandpa. My grandpa used to be able to shoot his empty casings without breaking the sides from 100 yds. One time he set the casind up to where the opening in the neck was facing mim, and didn't mess up the neck at all, and came straight out the back of the bullet. Now that takes a lot of skill on his part, but it has to be a hell of a rifle to repeat that.

Sounds like a good story at least.

just gonna come out and say BS, sounds like gramps had some good stories though. To put a bullet back through a case neck with messing it up is impossible.

This is a story from my uncle so the truth could have been stretched. I do have casings that he shot from the side though, so I know that much is true.

Why is that, RMFC?

I understand why actions and bores should be cleaned, but this is the first time I have ever heard of this, much less heard it called a stupid idea.

I await your response with anticipation.

im not getting in the middle of all of this. i flush mine all out with ronsonol lighter fluid. that is Jewell's recommendation.
of course im talking Benchrest and high end varmint rifles. not everyday ground pounders.

as for OP buy a Savage but hunt around for the best price

Tikka T3 Lite. Bought one a few years back in 22-250 to serve as a "walk around" coyote calling rifle. Light, slick, accurate, great trigger. It's a very well rounded rig. Love that gun. If it would have been the first rifle I'd ever purchased, the rest of my centerfire bolt action rifles would probably have been Tikka's too.

I shoulda bought one when they were real cheap. Always fondled them but never dropped the cash.

I haven't priced one lately. When I got mine the stainless Tikka only cost about $50 more than a stainless Savage.

When I was working at sportmans about 6 years ago I think they were about $450. That was before any kind of discount I could have pulled. Thanks for reminding me I sucked! :lol:
