It also seems like actions are hard to find. All I can find are Howas, and Remingtons. Where are the Winchesters, Weatherbys, Brownings, Rugers, ect?

The 6.5x55 looks like it has a case head close to the 30-06. But im not sure..

With those kinda prices I would go back to looking for a "bubba-ed" Mil-surp...

I only paid $600 for my '03, and $350 for my 1917 and there still in original military configuration.

According to what alot of you guys say, guns must be awfully cheap here in AZ...

When I was in the Army, they put us on 12 on, 12 off - 7 days a week. While in the chow line a SFC said, "Two more working days till Monday." Somehow, it depressed the hell out of me and I never forgot it.

However, the detail was on an Airforce Base and the chow was unbelievable compared to the crap they served in the Army.
