Re: Looking for options for a barrel block bedding system.

Troy,

A friend just built a 408 C-T on an 8.5" BAT. His barrel is 1.25 for about 5" and then a straight taper to 1 1/8" at 32". I didn't weigh it before he took it to his gunsmith but would guess it at about 10-11#.
Lilja mounted a 1.45 straight barrel, 42" long on a Geske and it has 1 1/8 X 16 threads, maybe 1 1/4" deep. www.riflebarrels.com and look at Dan's articles for details.

308 Nate,
What stock is that on your rifle? I built one that looks very much like yours with a laminated Black walnut blank that a friend of minr=e glued up for me.I used a 6" block just like the one in the pic. 6.5-284,31"shilen barrel,Remington short action. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Looking for options for a barrel block bedding system.

hey JR,
I don't have a website but if you are interested in these barrel blocks let me know and I will e-mail you my phone# off list.I can also do a quantity discount.

Drilling and reaming the hole takes about 1/2 hr. then 3 sides of the block are machined to 1/4" thickness and the bottom side is 1/2" thick. Then all bolt holes are drilled and tapped then the bottom is slotted. The hole the barrel goes through is drilled and reamed with a 10 hp.drill press with power everything.It really makes the job easy.
everything else is done in a bridgeport mill.

riflecountry,
The stock is made by Elkridge stocks.unfinished but inletted for most actions. laminated stocks start at $180
but a heck of a long waiting period.I waited 4 months for this one! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

P.S. JR.. Just moved here from SD two years ago. got nothin'against south Dakotans,Great place, great people [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
I was ranch foreman west of Mobridge for 8 years. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Looking for options for a barrel block bedding system.

These examples come from the company that makes scope mounts and barrel blocks for extreme long range shooting. There was an article or two in Precision Shooting...
