Luckily I have my BLR, but I sure wouldn't mind a blue/wood after seeing how yours shot. Then again, I always wanted to build a custom, so maybe that would be a good project for me. Have you seen the new Rifle magazine? There's a decent article on the 358 in it.Yes, it was disappointing to me when I discovered that. You might be able to find a blued/wood one on line somewhere that has not sold yet or one for sale on one of the gun brokers.
