I have a LA model 70, currently in a 30-06. I have another 30-06, a 308, 264 WM, 3-243's, 2-25-06 and a 7mm-08 along with some smaller calibers.
I have a shoulder problem that takes out anything with more recoil than the 308. I don't need or want, another 30-06. So, question is, what should I re-barrel it to?
I thought of a 6.5-284 but have heard of some having problems with getting them to feed well without some work on the action.
Main use would be for a hunting rifle with taking it out to some distances. I have limited access to a 1000 yard range and a friend with his personal range out to 500.

Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.
