Default My $100 dollar score

I picked this up from an older gentleman that walked the entire show without an offer. It is a heavy barreled 300 Weatherby built off a Remington P14 action with a Johnson automatics muzzle brake. I need to clean up the stock, but it is a beautifully figured piece of walnut. I will be sure to post a range report once I locate a set of rings to fit the bases. I do believe the 13 pound weight of it will really soak up the recoil.

Nice rifle! It has character and I love that in a rifle. But I would have a gunsmith go over it. That's a lot of power in an old action. Better safe than sorry.

Wow! That's a great deal! Are you planning on using it for any large game this season?

Not this year, I'll probably only make it out for shotgun only white tail.

I would not want that cartridge, but regardless, still a very good buy. Have a couple of nicely sporterized M1917 rifles still in 30-06. Wish I'd paid $100 for them.

I just can't pass up a deal when I'm working the table at a show, including the $40 Remington 34... Stock was cracked, or I should say split, but she is a hell of a shooter.
