      Hello Sir,
      I am attempting load development using the Low Es/SD numbers first, then will shoot for groups while adjusting seating depth. I was wondering if you would be willing to take a look at my first set of data from over the weekend and verify that my next loads to try are on par with what you see as well.
      Thank you very much. If willing, I can email or text information to you. Whatever is easiest for you.

      Hi Sir
      I thought i would ask a question here as to not fuel anymore fires. I am looking at going to a Redding type s die for my 7RM. Would that be your choice? I have both RCBS and Hornady dies but want only the best for this rifle (within reason) i have been annealing the necks after each firing but still full length sizing. It is a Remington action that was built by Shawn Tomason PTG bolt and a Hart 1in 9 barrel.

        I really Like the Redding bushing dies but be sure to get there bushing and not some other brand to get the best fit in their dies

        I have some Hornady bushing dies also but think the Redding's are better, The only thing that I have that Is as good or better is custom dies for my wildcats

      JE, what is better for accuracy and longest distance with accuracy. 45-70, 450 Marlin, 460 S&W, 500 s&W. I saw some guys shooting 500 out to 600 yards but no accuracy!

      you may be the man to lead me into temptation.
      I am curious, of all brakes out there are you versed with the front ported brake
      I have a shilen barrel that is chambered for .260
      The shilen barrel is going to be installed on a Remington action and rechambered to a 65/284 norma....
      Thanks..

      I'm looking to restock my M77 Hawkeye .338 Wm. At present the action rest in a Pillar bedded Hogue but I feel it is not stabilizing the barreled action and flexing when fired. I was thinking of a laminated wood stock ( Boyds ) and then glass bed it.
      Would this be better then what I already have?

      The Remington action is My first choice as far as quality, strength and cost. There are so many aftermarket parts that almost anything can be added to it. If you have a donor, it is just a simple re barrel job. everything else can be used.

      If you don't get tricky. and stay with SAAME throat dimensions, Mag length is not a problem and great accuracy can be achieved.

      Looking to build a 338 rum or edge. Is a remington donor action the best to build on? Do you do the blueprinting on the action? As far as a donor action, do I have to stick with one of the factory RUM actions? I want do it as reasonable as possible without having to buy a bunch of extras like bottom metal, trigger housing, etc.

      I would recommend that you head space off the belt .002 and once you fire form the case it will head space of the shoulder as long as you don't over size the case. (Size only enough to chamber a loaded round)

      This way you can fire any factory ammo and when you load, the ammo will head space off the shoulder.

      just the way I do it.

      Good morning Jerry,
      I was messaging you about a question I have, regarding a Savage 110 Magnum Boltface action. I am currently working on a deal for a 300 Win Mag barrel, and was wondering if I would get a better set up using a Cartridge case to set headspace, or should I get a go gauge that sets off the belt? I was thinking that I could get better case life if I head spaced off the shoulder of the case. Or am I not thinking of all the variables that come into play?
      Thanks,
      Bill Gohring

      I would like to inquire as to your gunsmithing services...

      I am kicking around the idea of a rifle build in 22-250 using a weatherby stainless steel 6 lug action, a B&C medalist stock, and a Rock Creek barrel. I have access to the action/bottom metal and am wondering if you are able to true and square the action? I understand that lapping the 9 lug actions isn’t usually necessary; I haven’t heard anything about the 6 lug action. Additionally, I would like to get the action nitrided.

      If you are able to do the action work, please let me know along with costs and time estimates.

      Thank you for your time.

      I like the 1 in 9 twist for the 7/08 and it does real well with 120 to 175 grain bullets.

      The 120 Ballistic tip is the preferred bullet for deer sized game.

      The best group to date with this combination has been .053 5 shot @ 100 yards.
