Quote:
For the past few decades switch-barrel rifles have become mainstays among my test rifles and hunting rifles. Having some of these rifles limited to one barrel and one cartridge didn't really make much sense. Tying up a major amount of money in a rifle with a mounted scope and a single barrel simply didn't prove the logical thing to do. Read More...

    ok... so cliff notes would be, locktight the nut to the barrel so you can take it on and off and keep the head space with out having to re-head space it each time?

    Please correct me if I am errant but the three groups with the .22 PPC were .2872 MOA not .862 MOA average. They averaged .8616 inches at 300 yards.

    great article,
    now i want to start planing too build a switch barrel rifle like this. can you build one of these switch barrel rifles on a repeater action? do you need to use a savage action because of the barrel nut is on the out side of the barrel? if you don't use a savage with the nut on out side of barrel you have too pull the action out of the stock to change the barrel correct?
    thanks

    I found my action wrench at Brownells around 45 dollars. It works great the only problem that I am having is keeping the barrel nut locked down the jbweld dosent seem to want to hold. Anybody else do something different that will hold better.
