Pre 64 Model 70?

Thinking about cutting 4"s off the barrel of a pre 64 model 70 250 savage. I think it would make a heck of a truck gun shooting 75grain Vmax. I was thinking a cutoff wheel for the barrel and a chamfering tool for the crown. Let me know what you guys think.

Why not just a hacksaw and a file. Just eyeball the cut and file off the junk - oops, that would be the whole rifle at that point.

Because the hacksaw keeps binding up against the workbench vise. This ain't my first attempt at something like this.

Great idea, you could also make a suppressor for it using a toilet paper roll and duct tape.

Best of luck,

I think a spray paint camo job on the stock would be a nice touch as well.

Or with some black paint and a cheap brush he could replicate this gem...

If you're gonna turn it into a tomato stake, leave the extra 4 inches on it. As wet as the ground is, it may hold better being able to drive it that much farther into the mud.
