    I took my new to me 264 Winchester Mag out this morning to try her out. It’s a L61R Finnbear 4 digit serial number. Just using factory ammo I was quite impressed. Plan on cleaning it and starting the hand load process. Will post pics when I get that going.

    I need to get on board here and get the paperwork to know for sure. I’m thinking 1962. But I need to verify that.

    I am imagining wide open spaces in New Mexico. 264 mag should be perfect. I’ve always liked the idea of that cartridge but I’d never take advantage of its long range capabilities here in Connecticut.

    Good luck with your new rifle!

    Thank you! Looking forward to trying it out. I’m gonna take it for hogs in Texas first.
