Re: How would you rate this chamber job?

time..., yeah loading for it I spent and lots more then it worth on bullets and powder to make it group...
got call from Savage today, thing was pointless... I send them pictures of original chamber, now they wanted to know why modifications were done to the barrel.
Guys do you know how in short words describe what was originally wrong with this barrel, just by looking at the pictures? Anyway I felt like I was interrogated not a pleasant talk I might expect from customer service... Wat difference does it make now, what is done is done...

It would depend if you got a good one, the F-class team has pulled some good barrels without a bore scope then others they've scoped and picked. Not as good of odds as a custom barrel fitted but a good smith.
I've had a couple factory heavy barrels that shot extremely well and you would be hard pressed to top them.

I was thinking Shilen Stainless Select Match drop-in instead of factory barrel...

By the way, I talked to my smith and he recommend me wood dowel with fine grit sandpaper to finish shoulders in that chamber, so I I made wood dowel shaped like my chamber with 30 degree shoulders, and I used 320 grit sandpaper and I think he was right its getting better! He is an old-timer and retired, but I guess he build rifles for 40 years and knows something... Still far from perfection but that's how brass looks now:



maybe few more passes and I'll get rid of them rings...
