    Remage or tradional rebarrel?

    I did McGowan Remage rebarrel recently and it worked well. The learning curve wasn't that bad, there are several good videos on YouTube to watch to get the process figured out. My feeling is that if you are going to just do one, get a professional rebarrel done because the cost of the action...

    A Dilemma!

    Suppressed 300 Blackout running subsonic is kinda fun, but it's just a toy unless the zombies come out Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    57.0g Retumbo under the 120g partition looks to be the load. 3110 fps from the chrono. Might toy with seating depth, might not. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Rem 700 action

    Have a little work to do, but all in all happy with the results so far. As the barrel warms I see some vertical stringing. Going to have to bed the rifle and free float it. Never have had much luck with the forward pressure points in some stocks. Shooting 120g Partitions is like shooting...

    Weighed it last night and it is a little heavier than I expected at 8 pounds 4 ounces. Pretty average. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Rem 700 action

    I wanted a reasonably light weight rig for moderate ranges. Debated between a fixed power and a variable power. This scope weighs in at just under 12 ounces. I have the same scope, a generation older, on a light weight mountain rig and I found out it was a pretty nice scope. Haven't weighed...

    Looking to go a little more old school to start and work up 120g Partitions and the old standby 115g BTips. Opted for a 9 twist barrel in case Nosler ever goes for a heavy ABLR. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Got the barrel this morning [emoji16] and spun it on this afternoon. Assembled it to check fit and had to do a little sanding here and there to remove some points of contact. Will break her in this weekend and decide if I want to bed the action or not. Final parts list Rem 700 Action McGowan...

    Winchester 70 Stainless Classic .375

    I have bead blasted a few stainless barrels. It can be a challenge to match the original finish so blast the action at the same time. I have used virgin 80 to 100 grit? glass beads at about 100 psi. Then clean with solvent and buff with fine steel wool and oil. A blasting cabinet is very...

    It feels good. Don't know what to think about the pressure points in the barrel channel. To leave, or to remove? Suppose I will remove and skim bed the whole thing because I like to do that kind of stuff. Trigger came today. Going to try a TriggerTech Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Bell and Carlson Alaskan II arrived today. Action and bottom metal drop in, but may bed it in the future. Still 6 to 8 weeks out on the barrel. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
