Actually, because I do reload, the chambering is one of the things that drew me to this gun in the first place. It was a good (still is) cartridge many years ago and with modern powders and bullets it can be a contender. I am thinking of doing a few long range matches this year and this gun may be just the ticket.
I figure with a few modern touches this gun should be good for another 100 years or so.
Thanks for the replies in the thread. It has been very informative.
