    Remington 700 franken-rifle

    Sadly having to part with some gear so I can buy a heatpump ASAP. Dunedin can get cold in the winter. Apparently.
    Long story short; this is a Remington 700 long action with a 12" .308 heavy barrel.
    After $600. Bore is excellent, 1/12 twist, threaded, previous owner said the barrel shot very well at that length, I didn't shoot for groups, but with a suppressor full-house loads are not much louder than with a longer barrel and suppressor, I tried some subsonic homeloads and they were very very quiet.

    Short, but heavy barrel... What does she weigh? What's the thread?

    I think it is 5/6x24, will have to check. It's probably about as heavy as a standard 700 with the skinny 24" barrel

    what's the round count if you know?
    I've always loathed the necessity of sleep. Like death, it puts even the most powerful men on their backs.

    As above...... .308, as in .308 Win =)
    Yup, short action cartridge on a long action, believe it or not, the magazine loaded and fed .308 quite happily
