HOLY CRAP! Sweetness!

I was lamenting the end of the model 70 and wiki'd it. I saw this at the bottom:

Has anyone else heard about this? Is it true? If so, I'm down like 4 flat tires.

Give me a dollar.

Olin has the Winchester ammo.

Hodgdon has the Winchester powder. 231, 748, etc.

I think the Browning BAR, Benelli, and Winchester Super X rifles are the same.
