"Building a single shot"

Post by heisler0 » Sun May 01, 2011 8:08 pm

I have been thinking of getting this book but thought I would see if anyone has an opinion on it first? First is it a usable design? and what type of calibers could it be used for? Small varmit calibers or heavy calibers? I have always wanted a 308 norma magnum why I dont know just want one will this action hold up to the pressures this cartridge produces? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

.308 Norma Magnum? You must have shoulders of Steel! Anyhow, I would go with the deHaas designs myself.
