Just my guess. Additional chambers for high volume rifles is no problem as the incremental effect is very small.
    I believe you are probably right, it certainly makes financial sense. I would just like to have a threaded barrel 44mag repeater (rifle) that wouldn't make me swoon if I scratched it up some. Guess I won't be seeing a threaded barreled 257 Weatherby in a Ruger American any time soon either huh?

    As for bolt actions, how about 18.5 inch barrels? Ruger produces those.

    Musings from the range

    This past week a couple of us guys went to the range. Ran into others we new so our group grew to 7. Some thoughts.
    My 270 shot pretty well both 130's & 150's under 2". 130's hit same height but 2" or so to the right. My messed up hand and shoulder continue to be an issue. Altamont had these Ruger 60th anniversary grips on sale for $20 so I swapped out my fingergrooved Hogues for them giving up better control for aesthetics. The Nikon tactical spur is an answered prayer. Man, I love it. Two of the fellas were shooting new Ruger scouts BUT noticed right away no forward mounted scout scope. Hmmmm. Winchesters new 350 round and Rugers 450 bushmaster carbine brought about discussion as it is listed after by the scout guys. So, again, I say blue faced. Why can't anybody chamber a 16" barreled bolt gun in 44 and 357 magnum? Instant versatility with 44 and 38 specials as well as cci's bird shot loads. Should be a no brainer right? I'd buy one myself.
