New to the forum layout. I commented on an old thread so I got moderated. I guess it was because it was a “zombie “ . I hope. I’m not intentionally breaking any rules. I’m building a .256 Newton as a full stock rifle (as opposed to carbine) so it has a 24” 1-9 tapered octagon barrel on a 50’s F.N. action and a 1909 bottom metal. I thought I would just throw this out there and see what comments/suggestions come back. The build is nearing completion so at this rate I should be sending to the bluers in a couple months. I have some (100) headstamped Jamison brass and a deluxe die set set from CH4D. I also have an assortment of .264” bullets varying in weight from 90-160g that I’ve accumulated over the last 30 years of reloading. The .256 Newton seems to capture my imagination more so than any of the other traditional hunting cartridges so let’s talk.
