    Thanks. It has 10 flutes. I picked up the barrel cheap and decided to experiment. As most people will say you shouldn't flute after it's rifled and you shouldn't flute with a ball end mill because of stress, but it shot better after I fluted it then before. I have grown very attached to this cartridge.

    That bolt shroud is very nice. Is that a production piece?

    No It was a ISS, so I made a new one out of SS cuz I didn't like the alum ones. I also made a new firing pin (a fluted one) and bought a non iss cocking piece. Other than looking up info, parts, and getting ideas on the web I can't stand sitting in the house. With my lathe and mill less than 50yds away when I get an idea I'm running to the garage. Some good some not so good.
