    Bedding?

    I once did a rifle in JBweld once because I was in a hurry to finish it and it was the only thing in the shop I had that I could do it with. It actually turned out pretty well. Just be careful, and don't make a mess because it is hard as a rock when it sets if you get it on anything not protected.

    .264 Win Mag

    Pretty close to what I get. Mine is a 28" shilen on a model 70 action. With retumbo I have yet to reach 3300 with a 140gr Berger before pressure signs start showing. If I remember right 3280 was about as fast as I got.

    .264 win mag

    The 264 win mag was my father's rifle of choice and when I turned 13 he gave his to me. Since then it has become my favorite caliber. Now I have three 264 Win Mags. A mint pre-64 model 70, a later post 64 model 70 win, and my newest is a custom I built three years ago. I built it on a Win 70...

    Georgia White Tails

    I was born and raised in SW Georgia right in the middle of farm country. I hear constantly of people all over the state talking about the deer in Georgia being over shot. The herd is smaller etc..., but I have yet to see it. I currently hunt an area that 15 years ago had no deer to hunt so...

    Film Dipping rifles

    Those guys are into benchrest shooting if I am not mistaken. They also have a two week turn around which is unheard of. I have two stocks that I am shipping out next week to them, and an action following in a few weeks.

    264 win mag

    I'll look thru my books in the morning and let you know what loads I have used in the past. I have been a big fan of the 264 as it was my first rifle given to me by my father. I now have three of them, and finally wore out my first one, and completely rebuilt a year ago. It is now my main...

    Reload company

    They may be great loaders, BUT I have never bitten for the custom loading hook. Just because a load is put together precisely doesn't mean it will shoot well in your rifle. I reload for a few friends, but I ALWAYS have the rifle on hand and build a load for the rifle. You'll spend some kind...

    Chambering goals

    Great post Chad. It must be nice to have that caliber of equipment at your disposal. I own/operate a small welding and machine shop, and do my own rifle work. I have all older manual machines, but they are tight, and in good shape. I'd love to run a machine of that caliber, but I'll have to...

    Chambering goals

    Well to start with, I'm not a BR smith. I'm just a welder/machinist by trade. If you really want to learn about chambering a rifle do a search over on benchrest central. Those guys are very helpful, and there are several threads on chambering if you do a search. In fact one was posted a few...

    Rem.700 Bolt Value?

    NO! I wouldn't take less than $100. I would probably start with $125 or $150. Good luck.

    Chambering goals

    It depends on what exactly you are looking for. Benchrest smiths are alot more particular in what they accept than a smith who primarily barrel hunting rifles. There is no such thing as a "perfect" chambering job, but you have to strive to get as close to perfect as possible. I generally...
