lol "crazy talk" is why we are all here, isn't it?!This...
If you have a legitimate 1/2" M70 - why the hell go changing that?!? Crazy talk
They why's I would rebarrel:
- Shorter barrel from current 26" to 24" (could be done by cutting down barrel)
- Thread for and add muzzle brake - (same as above)
- Faster twist to stabilize heavier bullets more well purposed for elk, e.g. 168gr LRX or 175gr Elite Hunter (could roll with a 160 AB or 145 LRX)
- Bump up to 300 win mag... yadda yadda yadda
