Back up with alot more info.
The lugs were lapped and the recoil lug surface ground.
This barrel was a 31" heavy varmint contour that was originally on my 1000yd. light gun, which, after around 700 rds I replaced it temporarily with a Dasher barrel to shoot the 600 Nationals, and then decided not to put it back on and build another rifle that I didn't need using this barrel.
I then had 1" taken off the muzzle and 4" off the shank, which, in essence, made it a new barrel at 26" long, 895" at the muzzle, and had it chambered and fitted to the new action with my match reamer.
It weighs 11 pounds, 5 ounces bare naked.
It's been shot 11 times. Here's the 200 yard group. The far right shot was the first one at 200. I clicked over and then shot the five shot group. The last four went in the three shot triangle. Five shots measured 620" using just my standard match load. I suspect it may shoot better than some can drive it.
Here's a pic of the bedding
