    Mossberg MVP Patrol 308 re- barrel to 358 Winchester

    http://www.35caliber.com/ is who I researched. They will use your existing barrel, ream the throat and bore it out and cut rifling for $250. Friend used them to turn a Garand into a Whelen and it worked great. I'll look into the RAP. Thanks

    Mossberg MVP Patrol 308 re- barrel to 358 Winchester

    I like the idea of using AR-10 high capacity mags and the Patrol seems like the only one that fits that bill

    Mossberg MVP Patrol 308 re- barrel to 358 Winchester

    Any thoughts on using the Patrol as a host? Its light, compact and uses AR-10 higher capacity mags. AR-10's' are just too heavy once topped with a thermal to tote around. Usually only get one shot anyway before the hogs scatter and the bolt is pretty quick.

    Mossberg MVP Patrol 308 re- barrel to 358 Winchester

    Thanks...I haven't looked into the cost of rebarreling for the Federal. Shots no longer than 150 yrds, but hogs are BIG

    Mossberg MVP Patrol 308 re- barrel to 358 Winchester

    I'm thinking about getting a Mossberg MVP Patrol in 308 and having it rebarrelled to 358 Winchester for something different. Will use on hogs, deer etc. with a thermal on top. Any thoughts I should consider? I can get in this for about $750 total. $500 for rifle and $250 to rebarrel.

    WTB Mossberg MVP Scout 308

    Looking for the Scout version due to the longer Picatinny rail, but would consider the Patrol model in 308 only.

    Mossberg line of Rifles- Houston

    Who in the Houston area carries the entire line of Mossberg rifles? I've checked Bass Pro and Academy and neither carries the entire line, only 1 or 2. Thanks.

    Ruger American Hunter

    Here is another thought for a truck gun instead of the Ruger American Hunter....Mossberg MVP Patrol 308. I shot one last week with a bunch of tarnished mixed ammo pulled out of a jacket pocket. It shot well under 1 MOA at 100 yards off of a creaky old bench with poor support. Lightweight...
