    300WSM Report Pic continuation-3











    The last 3 pics are of my 270Wby with heavy fluted barrel, and pic of target. This is the rifle by which the accuracy of all my others are judged by.

    Regards,
    Vic

    Bob,

    That is the protective cap that goes over the barrel threads when the muzzle brake is removed. The cap is just a little longer then it should be.

    Vic,

    The reason I leave the knurled caps long is to protect the crown. The brake protects the crown when it is installed and the extended thread cap acts as a counter bore and protects the crown when it is installed. I would be more than happy to shorten the cap if you would like.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I just didn't understand what I was looking at. I have been messing around for about a month now trying to figure out how to protect the crown and threads of a rifle that won't fit in the case with the brake on and I didn't get a cap for it.

    Nate , did you happen to check the "square-ness" of that action?

    I think that if it were me I'd be calling Borden as to the feeding troubles that this gun is having.

    One things that puzzels me is that the barrel is chambered and has been threaded and crowned yet its not screwed to the action?
    Was the action and barrel shippped to you from the smtih seperate?
    Did you take it apart after you recieved the rifle?

    I know that I once built a gun for a fellow and it shot great when it left my hands but after he got the gun their was claims that it woulden't shoot for squat , so he sent it back and I noticed that the crown was VERY shiney and their were out of round blast marks on it , SO I call the fella and ask what exactly he did to the gun and tells me that he polished the crown and chamber with a dremal tool !!!! So he then tells me that hes gonna have to get a full refund for the barrel installation charge !!!

    So guys if you think their might be a problem when you get your gun call the builder before you try to fix it ,not saying that the case here just thought I'd pass that along
