Re: something I found at the local gun show

Pretty Lady. I like the forearm, nice. And at first I didn't like the Williams tang sight, after using these a while I've changed my mind. Its the best one of those in that it is great for tuning your point of aim and no worries of it getting off. The only one I like better is the Lyman 41AT. Got 3 ...

Jim, Outside neck turning will help some. Use care, if you trim too much the sizer die will not give you enough neck tension to hold the bullets. Especially if you find some jacketed. The turning can contribute to accuracy, too. Inside reaming often runs off center in the brass. An option is to get ...

There is another small difference in the bolts and extractors. Some of the "35" extractor claws are curved some are straight. Most I've seen are straight. The bolt itself differs between the 35Rem and 300Sav; the recess in the bolt for the case head is about .006 larger OD for the 300Sav. A 300Sav c...

Re: Peep up or down

I would suggest raising the rear sight; start small to see how much it moves. Not more than a half a turn.
My son has developed a liking for the peep sights, he shoots tighter groups.
Remember the small apertures are for full sun, and will fade out at dusk.

Extractors on the 35 Rem are usually straight not curved. Trouble is the 300 Sav is straight too. And the 300S is slightly larger ID bolt face. About .006. I miked all three. 25-30-32Rem have a smaller bolt face than both. 300 Sav might work with 35Rem, don't know haven't tried it yet.
