Default 38-55 soon!

I'm trying to decide on sending my Winchester 94 or Marlin lever action to JES reboring to become a 38-55. It will be an iron sight cast bullet brush hunting carbine. I can't wait!

I sent the Winchester 94 and love it so far! I had fun at 40 and 100 yds yesterday with BP level reloads.

That should be a lot of fun to shoot - and a good woods deer cartridge if you want to hunt with it.

I think having a barrel chambered and bored is the best way to go with a .38-55. That way you can get it done to the specs you want. The chamber/bore specs seem to be all over the place on factory chambered rifles. I never could understand why there was no real "standard" for this cartridge.

You provide the gun and the rebore is $225 + whatever it costs you to ship it to JES.
