As many who visit this section know (because of all the stupid questions I have been asking)I have been preparing and planning to build guns for myself. I finally got all the pieces parts together for a build and finally got all of my tooling together.
I started with a Savage 12 action, a pac-nor barrel blank and a used mcmillan stock and here is what I ended up with...a long throated 308 with no barrel nut. I guess I got lucky because I cut the best looking threads and chamber that I have ever cut on this one. I am guessing that the 6ppc reamer I have been practicing with is dull, as my chambers were not very pretty.
Headspacing may be just a tad tight as I can feel the go gauge when it is in the chamber but the bolt closes easily. When you add a piece of tape on the gauge forget about it.
Every piece of this gun from the scope on down was bought on classifieds from various shooting forums or ebay. Now I just have to see how she shoots. I started break in yesterday and got 3 rounds down range....havent got on paper yet so I do not have any clue how she is going to shoot.
Many thanks to those who have helped me out with information. Now it is on to a 300RUM as soon as I find a barrrel
