Re: making my own pillars
The last time I bought some for my Smith I believe it was 20 feet. Had it delivered to him because he had run out and needed some to build my rifle that was in process.
G10 is very stable in with respect to the change in temperature and when accuracy is important the expansion rate of the pillar is a consideration. I know it is a fine point and gets itís application originally from glued in bench rest actions. Has to do with the heating and the heating of the action and its effect on the pillars during this process and the commesurate expansion against the action. Most Smiths do not understand the relationship however, my sporters are built to the same standards as my competition rifles --- they are just lighter for the most part, have the port on the right side and are repeaters LOL..
