    Gunsmithing Loose barrel threads

    Thanks Tx. That is what i was worried about. Teflon tape was the first thing that came to mind but wasn't sure if it would cause any other problems. Glad to here it worked for you. I think I will give it a try & see what happens. I know setting it back would be the best solution but the barrel...

    Gunsmithing Loose barrel threads

    Lets say that a guy wanted to try to chamber his own barrel & lets say he cut the threads a little under sized. Purely hypothetical. In no way did this actually happen :) Is there anything that can be done other then setting it back & starting over? The threads aren't so loose as to worry about...

    Experimenting with Berger 90 LRT in the 223

    Re: Experimenting with Berger 90 LRT in the 223 The trick to making the 90's work safely in the 223 is throat length. You have to throat it really long. You have to dedicate a barrel to shooting 90's. I've been shooting Berger 90 vld's for the past year. At this years Berger Nationals I...

    Little Help On a Ladder .338LM

    Re: Little Help On a Ladder .338LM Chris, I think the barrel movement Tim is referring to is barrel harmonics, not shooter error.. at least that is how I read it.

    Hand Loading for Long Range 4: Powderin' it

    Re: Hand Loading for Long Range 4: Powderin' it The barrel is a 28" Shilen heavy varmint with a tight neck chamber. The barrel & action work was done by Lester Bruno. What is confusing is that 39.5. 38.5, 39.0 & 40.0 are all within an inch on all 3 test. But that 39.5 only works in test #3...

    Re: Hand Loading for Long Range 4: Powderin' it I need some help here. I just had a custom barrel put on my rifle & just tried to do a ladder test. All my shots stayed in about a 3 inch vertical plain at 300 yards. They did'nt climb up the target. They all stayed in the same area on the...
