I almost bought a beautiful Winchester 70 in 264 WM several years ago. I drove about 45 miles to go look at it,and loved it until I removed the bolt,and shined my bore light into the chamber. The throat was gone in that barrel,and it would've needed a new barrel on it.
If I could've bought it for a good price,I would've got it,but the owner wouldn't come off his price.
