      Good Morning Sir, I saw that you rebarreled a micro medallion in 22 hornet. What barrel did you use for that? I have one that needs the same treatment. Thanks

      JE, I saw you posting on the 460 S&W round, did you come up with a round you liked? What barrel length are you using? An odd question, could a 460 S&w be built on a remington short action?

        I ended up liking the 250 ftx and the 300 grain XTP Magnum For the 454 Casull. Both are .452 diameter and for higher velocity.

        My 460 rifle Is built on a short action 700 Remington and has a 1 in 15 twist Lilja barrel. It is also a single shot.

        The barrel is 22" and will produce an amazing 2900 ft/sec+ with the 200 grain factory Hornady loads. (I have yet to chronograph the 250 and 300 grain loads )

        I thought a 460 case wouldn't eject? I may try it in an Encore, 22" huh. Is that max in your opinion? I'd think a 45-70 would beat it in a rifle?

      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....

      Hey buddy.....could you give me a good recipe for the 338 RCM 225 gr Accubond? Pushing them through a 24 Inch +brake Schneider barrel.

      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 definitely would use a Remington over an any action.

      Hi Jerry
      What kind of velocity did u manage out of your 30-378 and with what loads?
    13. J E Custom

      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?
