    RPA re barreling

    This is still a little way off and may not even happen if the answers no, does anyone know if its possible to rebarrel a 30-06 RPA action to a 6.5x284.

    RPA plan to offer 6.5-284 as a standard calibre soon, I had a reply back from them recently:

    "with regards to the 6.5x284 currently we only do this as a single shot however we are in the development stage of moving this over to a magazine. We will be using Accurate–mag floor plates and magazines for this".

    For information, there is an F-Class RPA in 6.5-284 on Guntrader at present: http://www.guntrader.co.uk/Guns-For-...40108162541001

    The trouble is the RPA is a good rifle but now they are the best part of £3500 and I hate to say it they are not worth it. My .260rem I paid £1950 in 2005 and my 30-06 I paid £2300 in 2007 the new ones have not changed one bit, I cant see were they warrant the money. Re barrelling and sakos from now on.
