Gonna get a rifle rebarrelled, pending variation, to another cartridge in the .308 family. I'm going to use a cheap donor (circa £200) with a good action as the base.
Obvious choices for a donor are parker-hale mausers or brno zkk601
A slightly different choice is a .308 Lee Enfield (factory not conversion)
Advantage of an Enfield is the 12 round double stack mag. Nice for the piggies. I love the action aswell.
Any other suggestions I may be missing?
