When I was a young man on my first deer hunting trip, I came across a guy with an M1 who told me it was .25-06. Seemed like a good alternative.

I'd love to have an M1 in 7x57 Mauser to go along with my Venezuelan FN-49...

Shuff's already offers a 35 Whelen barrel.

He does not, however, produce a .338-06 A^2 barrel.

That would be very attractive.


6.5 CM?

Why put a pea-shooter on a tank?

For you people thinking about a 35 whelen, try inserting a full enbloc of 35 whelen into your garand. The bullet is wide enough that you can't insert a full clip. My garand will only hold three rounds. If you want to load all eight then you will have to modify the receiver some.

Yep, I tried that on my 1945 Springfield with the same results. When I build up a mixmaster, I’ll consider relieving the inner rails a bit. I’m only at the parts collecting stage right now.

I've been trying to locate him too. His old phone number is out of service, and I haven't gotten replies to my emails. Hope he's alright...

Hey guys,

It looks like a first run of barrels in 6.5x55 is going to be happening! The barrels will be made by Steve Satern at Satern Barrels. I'm hoping I can offer the complete conversion kit for $325-$350 shipped. This would include the short-chambered barrel, conversion of the customer's op-rod catch to a Holbrook Device, a Schuster adjustable gas plug, and rental of a pull-through reamer to headspace the barrel correctly.

The barrels by themselves would be $275 shipped.

Many of the barrels in the first run are already spoken for, but PM me with your email address if you'd like to get in on it!

Steve
