Barrel block has to not toucht the action

I tried it. Took a 1 hole rifle and turned it into a gun that wouldn't shoot any tighter than a quarter. Atached a scope rail from the barrel block back to the action for mounting the scope. The thing went haywire right from the start. Called Bill Shehane and asked what the problem was. He said I was messing up the harmonics for which we built the block for in the first place. Took it apart redid it with some riser blocks and back to a one whole rifle. i am no gunsmith but I found this out quick. If I had not have talked to Bill I might have scraped the thing.
Hope this helps your decision.

cool , what top did you use or is that one the he made?

I'm expecting a new Barlein barrel in the next couple weeks then I'll be on my way up to Independance with a M-7 action. I just haven't decided what caliber. The barrel is a 243 ,28" 1-7.5 twist with the 5R rifleing , I'd like to shoot the 115 Bergers so I was leaning towards the 243 Ackley but hearing you brag on the 6mm-6.5x47 I was thinking that way , the cost of that brass is pretty steep and seems to be getting higher.

What would you think eddybo , for a target gun for 600 and 1000yds the 6.5x47 case or the bigger 243 Ackley case? I'll be using Lapua brass either way.

JJ,i understand what you're saying about the step up of around .105 or whatever it was. my point is, if the contact areas are even .0005 from what they should be, it's gonna induce stress.
