I did look at the Hunter on Kimbers site. Not crazy about it. At least it doesn’t have that God awful threaded muzzle.

Called Winchester today , Model 70 Extreme not produced since June 2020. Even though listed as current prod.

I work in a large manufacturing facility and we do not make every product every day. Set up and run “x” amount of widget “a” then change over and run widget “b” and on and on.
Was hoping since they were on the Winchester site as current prod. I could find out when their production schedule was going to produce but alas …..strikeout.

I have an Extreme weather that was rebored by JES to 35 Whelen.

I love it...... shoots tiny groups and handles like a dream!!

I saw a 6.5 needmore at Scheels for a discounted price.

Scheels in ? I’m east coast.
Do you have a link. ?

I tried website for them but couldn’t find it.

Also do you think this could be re-bored to .308. I have zero experience with the whole rebore thing.

It could be done. But there is really no reason to donut unless you REALLY want a .308 or really dislike the 6.5.

If it were me, id buy the 6.5cm, have fun with it, and if you find a .308 trade for it.

Just to clarify I found the Scheels website. I could not find the gun Harleyguy02 spoke of.

I Have spoke with Scheels . In Eden Prairie Minnesota.
Cove creek outfitters in Bedford Pa
Mid South guns in Wagram NC
And several others all over the country. No luck so far but still on the trail.
Any leads appreciated.

A suitable sub would be an original Kimber Montana in .308.
