    Here's the floor metal installed. I leave em a smidge over the stock because the paint will fill in the height. This way it's all flush when its done.

    Tang is sitting up a bit because the barrel is lifting the back up a hair. No worries, CLEARANCE that LUG!! so that it doesn't hurt anything!!

    Thanks for lookin!

    All the best,

    Chad

    I have to say, your bedding looks absolutely amazing... I've been utterly impressed with it every time I see some of your work. I'm sure the rest is equaly top notch, but the bedding is very visual.

    I will probably email you in the next months about a build.

    Great pictures. We always learn from your threads.

    Looks like you erased the writing off the top of your vise. That's right, I saw it in your last bedding post. I got a good laugh out of it.
    Thanks for posting. Chuck.

    Seeing your work pisses me off!

    I'm still trying to get a smooth and finish on a project I'm working on.

    The last thou, remembering to divide by two and final polishing is PUNISHING!

    I'm gonna put a hobs on the lathe and keep track of its hours. Keeping track of my time is ludicrous and demoralizing ........but enjoyable.

    Keep posting.

    To all,

    First off thanks for the kind words. Always nice to hear as it's encouraging to keep going down this path.

    More good news; That 300 RUM that I recently finished up just got shot an hour or so ago. Appears to be working. I literally threw together some handloads (168 Berger VLD, 79.0 RL22, 215 Fed, Rem Brass) and totally swagged the seating depth. Went to the range, girly posted the targets for me as I bore sighted the scope, and then went for it.

    First five were everywhere then she settled down. It's a solid 1/3rd minute group so I'm pleased.


    That should raise hell on critters this summer.

    Ok, off to the movies!

    Have a great weekend all and again, thanks.

    Cheers,

    -C

    I bet there's a future 300 RUM owner really happy to hear that it turned out that well.
