Re: Tune up ?s for New Savage 112 BVSS
This is the action part that made me start thinking:
Tech Talk with Fred Moreo- The Dean of Savage smiths
"When we true an action, it consists of much more than just machining a few mating surfaces. First the lead-in angles (the ramps that lead into the lug seats) are re-cut to a true helical cam. The factory cuts are made with an end-mill, and are not helical. A helical cam is like a spiral staircase, and I have developed special tooling to precisely cut the lead-in angles to engage the whole width of the bolt lugs. The receiver face and the lug seats are machined to square them up relative to the receiver threads, not to the bore of the receiver like most gunsmiths would do using conventional wisdom. The reason for this is the barrel will be square to the bolt face. Concentricity behind the bolt head is not critical, as the "float" in the bolt head will allow the bolt body to be off center as much as .045" in any direction, and still get full lug contact, although I've never seen one that bad."
I guess we will see if it helps My action hasn't been touched yet. I will shoot it this way and measure and then use the same load and measure after I get it worked over(trued and timed) by Sharp shooters supply. Man this 2010 project is starting to get interesting.
Thanks for the idea guys I am curious if it is worth it also. That is why I love this fourm, everybody is from different backgrounds and thinks just a little differently.
