Action Sleeves

Need advice...

Can some1, tell me why you would sleeve an action ? I have never seen one, except on the www. Whats the pros & cons ???
Is it for a longer barrel and stiffend up the action..?
I got a Remington short (22-250) going to make i switch barrel with 6-284 maybe.
If i want a 28-30" barrel should i sleeved the action...?
Please tell me.
One good reason to sleeve are: Nobody at home know nothing about it... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Including me... [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Re: Action Sleeves

Paal, sleeves are used to strengthen the action and to provide more bedding surface. Usually beneficial with the big heavy barrels. You say you are going with a 28-30" barrel, what contour? Also without extensive work it makes your action single shot. RandyB.

Re: Action Sleeves

Thanks RandyB

I'am going single shot.
I have not decided, what contour i'am going for.
Was thinking for L.Walther barrel for the cal.6-284, i dont know the contour.
But i want a heavy one with flutes....
Actually i have no reason for the fluting, except i like it. And that's a reason good enough, isnt it..... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
