    There was a model 70 in Hamills Hastings for close enough to free. I think Jem wanted something like $650. Gone now (to a good home)

    And if you want one I'd say you're better off building one if you're not too hung up on getting an Original. Get a Husquvana 1600 action off of Graham Champion, Turefilght have a reamer and a nice stock...

    I saw a 257 Roberts improved reamer in the PTG specials page and almost added it to the 6.5 SAUM and 338-06 reamers I got from that page

    Walker is about to put a 338 barrel in 338-06 imp in an action...he got the barrel of me...Should have kept the barrel as the main reason I got the 338 reamer it to use it to use it in conjuction with the 6.5 reamer to make a 338SAUM... But I think the 338-06 would also be cool to play with, more rounds in the mag

    Last one was trademe... have 3 7mm barrels and a 6.5 slower twist. Might go new for the 338 when I have finished the ones on the go now

    Still have access to a couple of p14s that I might use to test the capabilities before building a lighter Rem or Marlin?? 338-06 Marlin could be a cheap build.... Time and money is short so might be a while...have to buy the bits when they are cheap...like the reamers. $40US is pretty cheap for a new reamer

    Not sure...the site said 150 but then I emailed and they said in the notes it says it is wrong and they would be between 30-50.... Looked at the credit card charge and it cant be more than $50, Had mini a M16 extractor to get that I will fit instead of the Sako as you take less meat out of the bolt and Mod 7 alloy bits coming in as well so not too had spread over the order. One reamer I would have thought would be way cheaper???

    Not many that are that cheap... The SAUM was $50, Not sure how they price them as some are $$ compared to others?? I just keep an eye on them until ones I like are cheap..

    I should have got a couple more extractors and ejectors for spares...

    other interesting ones
