Re: My new .30 Wolf...

I broke the barrel in with the "1 shot and clean" method until copper came out with 2 patches of Sweets. You'll be interested to know that with that Lilja barrel, I only had to go through that torture for 5 firings! Then, I shot 3 and cleaned, I think twice.

Now, it takes about 2 patches of Butch's, a few passes with the brush and two patches of Sweets to clean it. It's a thing of beauty...

Re: My new .30 Wolf...

OK Guys,

Some new pics are posted, one showing another of my rifles while out deer hunting this fall, others showing the Wolf alongside some of my other objects of interest.

Re: My new .30 Wolf...

Ronin Rifles

The reamer was one of 5 different designs that we tested on 5 different barrel manufacturers, (Krieger, Black Star, Shilen, Lilja, and Hart). The Lilja 3 groove performed the best, both from an accuracy and velocity/pressure ratio, and the black star the worst.

Dan Green made the first three versions of the reamers, (Forgreens Tool), and when he shut down I had several other guys do regrinds, for small mods in taper and throat length.

I usually get stuff finished and tested in under six weeks from having all of the components in house. I do not start work on a project until I have all the components in house.

I would recommend the 30 Wolf for a man portable system, to produce shots from 0 to 1,800 yds. on soft targets. The .338's don't shoot as flat as the 30 Wolf at equal barrel lengths and weights. If you are going to shoot past 2,000 and truck the rifle around shooting off a turret or tri-pod the .338's ballistics with really long barrels are superior. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: My new .30 Wolf...

Brent, the stock we used is the HS Precision Pro Series adjustable tactical stock. S1 believes that the HS design is superior to others because of it's stiffness due to the full-length aluminum block.

Mach V, the bipod is a stock Harris. The word on our range is that 1/3 MOA is no problem for an S1 rifle. With regard to cost, it depends on the components you choose. S1 charged me a little over $1100 for the major machine work, the custom anti-torque brake, bedding the action to stock, the action to the scope base, and the myriad small adjustments that must be made to get the thing in shape.

Ronin Rifles, my rifle was finished within three weeks after we received all the components. Of course, your mileage may vary, but he is very attentive to doing what he says he will do...

Re: My new .30 Wolf...

Kinda of an unusal brake but,looks cool. What size is the muzzlebrake and dia of the barrel? How much does the rig weight?

S1 how does the wolf compare to the 300 tommyhawk?
