Not a 340 but a 325 in 30/30. Sold to a neighbor like a week after getting it! His dad had one was his story.
I like the idea of a 375 Bolt gun Rod!!
I have a couple Marlins and shoot Hornadys 220g with a case full of RL7 to just over 2100fps. Its a pile driver on Whitetails!
I do have a 222 in a Savage tho. Mine is in a beautiful 24 and it is soldered over a 20g barrel making it as stiff as any heavy barreled bench rest gun. It also shoots like one!!! Even with open sites I could touch bullets @ 50 yards!! Now I have a 1-4 Leupold mounted. I broke its extractor last summer. Had a kid next door tig weld it back together then I spent a couple Hours with jewelers files re fitting it. I have t shot it since. But I doubt it would effect accuracy.
Im gonna file that idea away to be revisited at a later date. :[IMG class=inlineimg]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
