Now werre Talkin!!

Latest build:

A "supa bling" Palma/Prone rifle. Switch barrel in 6mm CM and 308 Gamboa.

We have ourselves a very nice piece of rail road tie here. XXX English.



Barnard action ( From New Zealand, a bit "simple" to some, but a very good platforms for this kind of rifle. Action is a 3 lug and quite "robust")



Bartlein barrel being wrinkled and the breech chewed on.

boring the cone breech:



Chambering:



Inspection:

Yesser, that's .00005" TIR at the shoulder/neck and .00015" at the web. I swear on my bag of North End Parmesan&Herb Wheat thins I'm not fudging this-I was quite surprised as well as I've never had one quite that good.

Shoulder/case body junction TIR:

What type of wood are railroad ties made of?

There's a company in town that has about 5 acres stacked 20' high with the old railroad ties from Salt Lake. Never tho't of them for gun stock.

Re: Now werre Talkin!!

Finally getting back to this bugger. Stock work begins today. I'll more updates as things progress along.

Layout and computer work all done, now onto setting the machine up. Have to pull the 4th axis (Ugh!) to get the fixture on. I need a bigger machine!
