The russians also dumped a lot of PPSHs into that campaign, which cannot be discounted in the house to house fighting thta was done there.
Great post. I just like to argue

But my typing sucked. And I like to argue too. Part of my job some days. Lunch break is almost over.

Oh, and I use Mobile 1 on my semi-autos. Lower freezing temps and better cold temp flow.

The number 1 Sniper in WWII, technically did not fight in WWII but the winter war between the Soviets and Finland. Simo Häyhä Had 542 confirmed kills w/ the M27, 91/30 and had over 200 with the Soumi, the gun the PPSH was designed after, 62 w/ other platforms.
Ivan Sidorenko had about 500 against the Nazi's for the Soviets.
Häyhä Had over 800 confirmed kills in total.

For a great winter lube, or year round, check out Fluid Film. I had heard about it and they sent my a 4oz sample. Amazing for 20 degrees and below. It is all I use for my fall hunting rifles.

in the early part of the VietNam war, they did use some Winchester M70's in 30-06. later on they went to the Remington M700 in 308.

Both the 70 and 700 were used in .30-06. The .308 was at the end of the war. The M70 was a great rifle. They purchased pre '64 w/ a controled feed and the ejector was off set from the lugs so there was no slot in the left lug. Outstanding action. I would love to find a safe queen M70 from the late '50's early '60's to build on. .30-06 standard action for a custom 9.3x62 hunter. We can all dream!

Does anyone know where i can get a good Remington 700 barreled action? Unfortunately I can't find any pawn shop deals In my area (not very many to choose from, if any at all). Would a barreled action be considered a firearm and have to go through a FFL transfer?

Yes any barreled action firing modern ammo made after 1898 would have to go through an FFL.

yes, if it's a barreled action, it has to go through an FFL.

i was going to suggest checking out the pawn shops in your area, but it seems you have already done that.

Brownell's does sell a Remington M700 action, but doesn't have a barrel. i ordered one a couple of years ago and had it sent to my LGS for the FFL transfer. Brownell's and MidwayUSA both sell barrels for the M700 as well.

just keep checking the pawn shops out and maybe get to know a few of them and let them know what you're looking for and maybe they will call you when they get something in for sale.

Well here's the thing, I don't exactly live in a gun loving area. What I mean is I have 1 LGS, 2 if you count the A$$hole who thinks 75 dollars for a transfer fee is reasonable and 1500 for a mini 14 is a deal. Is barreling an action a reasonable task for someone who doesn't have any experience doing such a thing? I'm no idiot I know my way around basic hand tools but I don't know what it takes to barrel an action and I have a feeling I would definitely not want to mess that up

rebarreling an action is not a job for a novice, and there are some specialized tools needed to do the job. such as an action wrench for the intended reciever, a barrel vise, a finish reamer, a set of headspace gauges and a depth mike. doing one rifle, it's kind of hard to justify the price of tools that would only be used once. might do a Google search of your area for gunsmiths and gun dealers. you might have to travel a bit out the way to find a good one that won't rake you over the coals.
