    Gunsmithing Need a quick spec on a recoil lug

    Thank you. I looked all over the net and couldn't find one single blueprint/drawing with the spec to save my rear. The gun is factory for now, trying my hand at making a tube chassis and needed the spec for the recoil disk.

    Gunsmithing Barrel channel too large

    Well the Bartlein barrel came today. It is a taper to 1.0", which is what he guy said it was, guess what, the channel is to small, its going to have to be opened up. I wonder if the guy I bought the stock from new what he ordered. Anyway, I was going to send the thing to Kevin Rayhill but I...

    How much recoil for a 300 WM

    I have to make a choice of selling a nice stock or build a big rifle. How hard does a 300 WM kick compared to a 308, heavy weight gun? I already use some of the powders for my 243 so it comes down to how hard it will beat up a 53 year old man with a lot of spinal arthritis and how much it cost...

    Gunsmithing Barrel channel too large

    I don't really want a big rifle, but if I did, what would be an economical round that won't beat the shit out of an old man? I will load for it so take that into consideration. I can work with the current barrel channel.

    Gunsmithing Barrel channel too large

    Thanks Chad. I was just contacted by Jeff over at CDI when I ordered the bottom metal for this build. He stated that it was inletted for a magnum. I'm going 243 so according to Jeff it will have a hole in the rear of the inlet area. Should I sell this stock, or can you fix this as well Chad?

    Gunsmithing Barrel channel too large

    He would end up getting the rest to assemble and rebarrel as well. Not that I couldn't some of it but I want the paint and all to look right and that I can't do very well. Its a savage so please no flack about sending it to a smith.

    Gunsmithing Barrel channel too large

    1.20 channel and a .8 barrel. Sounds like it would look goofy. Anyone got a pic of such a setup? Won't knock till I see it. I've got a mill and I've done things like inletting before and its turned out well, but they were on lower end stuff and I want this one really nice.

    Gunsmithing Barrel channel too large

    I bought a Mcmillan A5 never used stock from a member here. He had the channel cut to a bull 8 contour. I don't really want to run a barrel that big. Can the channel be filled and redone, and if so who could do such a job? TIA
