Barrel swapping

I have a Remington action setup for switch barrel use. To tell you the truth and not bad mouthing your project action I don't know if this could be done on a Ruger M77 action but if it could then you have to have the action squared and the barrels that you are going to use would have to set so you tighten the action to the same spot as you won't have to torque them down likw they do at the factories. A "NO- GO" gauge is a must and I have learned even if you have a recoil lug pinned it's best to get a recoil lug guide that holds it straight while you are tightening them up but with the Ruger you have that angle screw to deal with also.
Good luck in your build.You also should bed your action so it goes back into the stock the same way everytime you change barrels.
