Re: I can hardly bring myself to say it! Ruger?
I sold my 77mkii .220 Rocket. bought it from someone and it had been bedded, heavy barrel target laminated stock and shot .3 .4 .5 anytime. Hating life at the moment trying to decide whats next.
I've lots of gear for the .223 Rem., brass dies etc. I've decided that will be the caliber. Been reading about the Savage 12BVSS getting into the "switchbarrel" jabber.
I probably wont go that route.
I will more than likely go the Ruger 77MKII Target in .223 my questions are:
What is "floating the barrel"? What is "opening the channel"
When would a gun be pillar bedded and when would it not?
Would an action be bedded, pillared and channel opened.
I really don't want to spend a year determining if a jammed up action is causing a 1.5moa groups.
Would it be advantageous to give it to the "right person" and get it out of the waY? And who might the right person be? What would I expect to pay (roughly).
If I went that route is performance ever adversely affected ???
I'd like to add a $300 super match grade barrel but that aint going to happen. I would rather know right up front that its anything but the action/stock fit.
I can work up accurate loads and that's going to have to be the end of it.
I'd really appreciate some thoughts on thisl
don't ever be fooled into believing security is a good alternative for freedom.
