Lead Sled is Here....

Put it together tonight, and realized you can't work a lever action rifle while it's in the rest.

One of these days I'll learn to read a bit more before I buy things......
Now, I *suppose* as long as I carefully put the rifle back in position after I take a shot and work the action, it won't really matter, but it kind of bugs me that I didn't research this a bit more.

Hmmmmmm....maybe it's time to buy a nice 308 bolt-action rifle?

Any recommendations?

  1. I didn't have a scope attached, but I used a couple of stacks of books with a bunch of socks filled with sand on top so I could work the lever. I wasn't as picky as I would have been with a scope.

  2. Like Jeffro I was never that picky, but I did find over the years that I got more accuracy out of the bolt action. My first high-power rifle was an old British 303, the bolt on it was very touchy and often if you just touched it, it would fly up. The most accurate center fire I ever owned was a Rem 17cal and as for rimfire it was the Rem 5mm. Thanks for your recent visit to TOTUS, my primary blog.

  3. Everything I've read, and people I've talked to, have told me the 336 is probably more accurate than I'll ever be, so I suppose I'm being overly concerned!
