Here is the picture of the rifle in the rough. It is a bull barrel bolt, chambered in .308. This is, apparently, what Scout-snipers carried in the Vietnam war. I will attest that the barrel makes it inconvenient to shoot off-hand or even from a braced position. It is so fucking heavy, I don't think one could shoot it from anything but a rested position.
The barrel is like nothing I've ever seen. It is huge, unwieldy and demands a rest.
take your rifle and scope to a gunsmith. Depending on who your gunsmith is, you will probably do a better job.
