We did nix the Nosler idea. Went with the 7mm UM Rem brass and that is definately easier to work with. Thanks for the pointer! We are still fire forming at this point. Hope to get some of the real deal loads done up this weekend. Will keep you posted. Thanks again.

Very nice looking gun.
I am curious about barrel shank diameter and length
barrel length muzzle diameter and the weight as pictured.

Full shank diameter length is 4.115" and a shank diameter of 1.250". 30.5"
Lilja barrel, including brake, coming to a .875" diameter at the muzzle. The weight as seen is 14lbs-2oz.

The gun sits nicely in bags/rest and should be a joy to shoot (it was in its previous life). Still working on fireforming loads but soon should have some actual Wildcats shot down the tube.

Was it your choice to get rid of the nut or was it necessary to get the chamber thickness?

For me there wasn't an underlying reason other than asctetics. Kirby may have, and I believe it was more of a bedding surface and usable barrel dia.(rigid) for him in suggesting it, but I didn't. Just asctetics for me was enough of a reason. He gave us alot of alternatives/suggestions when doing this project. They made sense so we did them, if it worked out that it also made the gun look better, we were all in. So as far as I know it wasnt a space for chamber issue.
