Previous owner shot both 7.62NATO and .308 target loads, but I'm a big chicken. I want an okay from a qualified gunsmith before I shoot the thing with anything.

After I get my gauges, I'll take it back to the gunsmith for a more detailed analysis and if there's something that would need to be done to tighten it up. Cost is not the issue here either, I just want a good shooter that will eat .308 and 7.62NATO.

Next step is an M1A, but I needed an excuse to step up in cost/round and this rifle is it...
I am in Aptos if you need help. FFL Licensed and insured for gunsmithing. 25+ years experience.
