Re: How would you rate this chamber job?

I've never seen Savages pillars fit as they should. Almost sounds to me like you're expecting "custom" from a company that provides "production" made products.

Not really, I don't expect anything from them anymore, that's why I tried to bed this stock, but I think those pillars are misaligned, it groups better without middle action screw. Originally I was planing to buy just their target action and build custom, then I thought if I buy their rifle with the stock and the barrel it wouldn't make much of the difference and I get a chance to shoot what everyone out there talks about "definition of accuracy", well I experienced it first hand.

Re: How would you rate this chamber job?

Here is how I feel about rechambering. Work hardened steel destroys reams so the only time I will do it is when I have a ream on its last leg! What you get is what you get! Piloted reams even with a floating chuck can not track true when piloted off of eroded lands, they tilt a small amount and allow fine chips to accumulate under the sweepers. If it is not a relatively new chamber ( non work hardened ) then the barrel needs to be cut back at least 1 neck length plus a smidge, or more! So the short of it is that if I cant cut off the existing threads and start basically fresh I wont do it. The photos look as if your smitty stopped about .030 short of a good job. looks a lot worse than it probably is and the shoulders will smooth out with very little honeing. Your smitty will probably be eager to correct the concern for you.

I only had 80 rounds down that tube, when rechambering took place, do you think they were eroded that much?
