    I borescoped an unused cut rifled barrel: help me learn about what I'm looking at.

    This thread is great. I know it's a radical thought, but before i decided to throw it in the trash, shoot the shit out of it, or even bet $5K on a $400 barrel, I think I'd probably call the smith and just talk to him about it. Like, maybe he's a decent guy, knows what he's doing and has some...

    I'm curious why you say that?

    Creedmoor has them in stock. They hit my credit card for my back order about an hour ago and sent out an email that they have them.

    this is it. I took the trigger and hanger off, and the screws went in a bit further. Bolt functioned flawlessly without the hanger installed. Looks like it’s hanging up in the rear, probably on the screw head. I’m going to see if I can find a flat head machine screw that’ll work. thanks for...

    The guy I bought it from scanned it and sent me a copy earlier this afternoon. I'm happy to forward it to you if you'll PM me your email address.

    New Sierra 169gr SMK (.30)

    I was able to back order them from creedmoor back in january. With $2 shipping to boot. That was for 4 boxes of 100. The shipping charge for a single 500 box was a regular rate. I'm assuming it was just a system error.

    JAE-700 bolt binding

    I was hoping somebody here had done it before I bother a professional especially one that I haven't used before. I'll get it sorted, and I'll be sure to let y'all know. I am worried about reducing the contact surface. I don't want to have to bed it. I'll give that a try. Hopefully it'll not...

    JAE-700 bolt binding

    That's perfect, thanks! I guess those go on the bottom of the action, between the action and the stock. That's what I'm going to try anyway. ETA: It looks like a 1/4" stainless flat washer would be really close.

    the recoil lug protrudes .440”, and the pocket is .613” deep and is wide enough. Good idea I hadn’t thought of, but I don’t think this is it.

    Please. If you could also post a picture of them and where they go, that'd be outstanding. Thanks!

    JAE-700 bolt binding

    It's both, depending on how tight I crank it down. If I back it out, it runs fine. BUT, if I loosen the back screw and really crank down the front, it also works fine. I'll see if I can get a finger in to confirm that's not it. I'll take it apart and see what they are. They're captive...
