Re: .338 AM So Close Yet So Far

isnt a 3" block a little small for hanging the barrel off of? Or is the action mounted also? I have been eyeballing Shehanes barrel blocks, which his small is 6 in. To me part of the strength is from having a larger area and holes farther apart.

I have really been thinking about building a 36-38" barrel blocked savage with a non tapered 1.12" barrel for next years deer season.

Robber,

The receiver is Pillar bedded as well. Basically from the rear receiver screw to the front of the V-Block it is bedded solid to three pillars and the V-Block. The total length of the bedding surface is 14" including receiver length.

If you go with a barrel length that long and large in diameter you will definately need a barrel bedding block and it would be best in your case to totally float the receiver of your Savage. An 8-9" V-Block is what I would use for your rifle if I were building one similiar to that.

JDJones,

I will get some pics of the flutes when I get out to range test the rifle. We had 35-40 mph sustained winds today with gusts pushing over 60 mph so no range testing today!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

On a #7 contour if your using 6 flutes, 5/16 is about the largest you can use and still look good. Anything much wider and the flute ribs get very thin.

I will get some pics soon.

I did a search but couldnt find the pics anymore. Dave tooley used to have a site that linked to wildcat custom rifles i believe with a bunch of pics of longrange guns and fairly detailed pics of large diam fluted barrels like you mentioned.
The looked very nice with large flutes.
