    Probably not what you want, but if nothing else surfaces (second hand should be a better deal) I can do a new 270 barrelled action for $675. I do have SS barrelled actions (6.5x55) but to be brutal we gone done on those and they are now dearer then a new rifle....I could do one for $900 and not tell the boss, but you should easily find a long action well cheaper than that. All of mine are still brand new and in the box so whether you could sell the new barrel if you are barrelling .......

    I am in chch too and they are not going anywhere in a hurry so see what else turns up and PM me later if this is of any help.

    With 20moa base, dtp, dies,... I think it's pretty good value. Even comes with a laminate stock so can change outfits with the stug stock.

    Yeah I know but I thought it may bring him to the reality that short efficient cases with less but faster burning powder will always trump a long action powder wasting, meat destroying thunder stick

    Try finding a new barrelled action. Outdoor supplies sell them. I was in the same situation last year. A new one was cheaper than a second hand in crappy condition.
    Also not many long action Howa's floating around

    Had a quick look at my list and the long actions I have are a 270 and a 6.5x55. The 6.5 is in SS (too dear) and Blued.
