ok, so in the endless pursuit of happines, I have now for no apparent reason started thinking about what I can do with my Sako 75 hunter once the barrel is shot out (.243)..
b. modify to a different caliber in this case,, what is actually feasible. I've been thinking of either going 'up' to something like a 6.5x47 Lapua, or .260 (I think both a possible from this action), or even 'down' to something smaller for more of a foxing/vermin round.
This will be complemented to with a .30-06 btw, so going 'down' wouldn't mean giving up on the ability to shoot bigger deer species.
ps. this will be purely for stalking purposes, so no target shooting or other such wasteful nonsense -
