Well I have two 2008 Limited Edition Model 70 Featherweight. One in 30-06 the other in.270. I think they are better than pre 64, just my option. Have put about 500 rounds thur 06. I have not used a brush sense break-in. The barrel cleans faster and better than any gun the I own. Shot 48 three shot groups with three different powders. Two powders averaged .88, One powder averaged .67, the largest group was about 1.375. Just started break-in on the .270, hope it is close to 06. I will be a happy camper.

Good thing. Then we would have been neighbors

Fn is not too far from the house, and I had a job offer there not to long ago. I should of taken it but that is another swift kick in the ass for me
