I found this 24" barreled action (L579 Forester 308) this afternoon while sorting through some rifle cases. The bore is incredibly clean and shiny. I would love some opinions on stocks. If I don't run across the original stock, will it be difficult to find an original, or should I look into an aftermarket "so to speak". I would like opinions on scopes. I would like to deer hunt with it, but don't know much about 308's. I am thinking I would use it as a shorter range gun, but like I said, I'm not too familiar with this caliber. I also came across an Interarms action with a 375 H&H barrel with a muzzle brake, as well, but I guess that is for another webite.
