    Surgeon Action???

    Has anyone ordered and received a Surgeon action lately? I ordered a 591 16months ago and still nothing. I called Surgeon today and lady said she had no idea when actions will be made again and for me to call Mr. Ford. His voicemail said Mcmillan Firearms. Apparently he is over Surgeon now?

    Forends too short on long barrel rifles

    Seems like the trend today is longer barrels, yet the stock makers still use the standard forend length which looks short when used with 30" barrels with muzzlebrakes. I have talked to Manners & Mcmillan about this and they say it would require new molds. I understand that but take for example...

    6.5x284 vs 6.5 SAUM

    We all want faster cartridges but at what point is barrel life a concern? The 6.5x284 is one of the most accurate cartridges of all time. It has roughly 1000rd barrel life, that is 1/2 moa life. Once accuracy gets worse than that, it`s time for me to change barrel. Since the 6.5 SAUM uses more...

    Range Report New 30cal magnum?

    I think we need a new factory 30cal magnum. The 300 Ultra and 300 Norma Mag is too much of a good thing. Barrel burners for sure. The 300 Accuracy International (30-375 Ruger) isn`t going to happen. With todays new high BC bullets, 215gr, 225gr, and 230gr bullets, I believe the 300 Dakota would...

    458-416 Barrett anyone?

    So my thought is using the 416 Barrett case and necking it up to .458. It should produce the about the same velocity as the Steyr with less powder. Also, by using the shorter case, should burn more efficiently. By using bigger diameter bullets, expansion ratio will go up so there will be a...

    Gunsmithing Truth about blueprinting a Rem 700

    Most Custom rifle builders when blueprinting a Rem 700 action, they true up the receiver face, threads, and lug seats. Then the factory bolt gets face and lugs trued. If you indicate the bolt in by the firing pin hole, then the body isn`t running true. If you indicate off the body, then the...

    Mcmillan stock, GAP camo without the black

    Does anyone have a Mcmillan stock in camo like the GAP camo without the black in it? I don`t know why black is used in hunting type colors as black isn`t a color found in the outdoors. Even shadows isn`t really black in color. I`m just trying to get idea of some type of camo pattern to go with.
