Fast way to make a high dollar tomato stake.
I did not know you could not turn a hammer forged barrel. ???
The sleeve that is around the original barrel looked larger in diameter then a 12 gauge shot gun barrel. I would imagine they would take the taper out of the original, but that is only my guess.
The guy that has one in our club had a Rem. 700 done to his with a 20" barrel in .308 and shoots at 1000 yds. off of a sand bag and does fairly well with it at that distance with out a rear bag.
