      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....

      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.

      Hi Jerry
      What kind of velocity did u manage out of your 30-378 and with what loads?

      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?

      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.
      I have seen a few threads here on LRH discussing loads for the 7mm-08, and saw that you prefer the Nosler 120 BT. I am going to build a 7mm-08 AI and was wanting to shoot this bullet. I am trying to determine the fastest twist to use. I am thinking the 10 twist will work, and also allow me to shoot some bullets up to 140 grains. If you have shot the 120 BT accurately in a rifle with a faster twist, please let me know if that will work too, such as a 9.5 twist. I strive for 1/2" groups, or less, with my rifles and hand loads. Can you please give me your advice and opinions for the preferred twist? I would appreciate any and all information.

      Hi, my name is Rachel, and I want to ask about your 1885 to 45-120 conversion I found in an old post. Before my boyfriend passed, he bought 2 Brownings in 45-70, and one in 38-55, both new, super deal. I have shot one, and want to start with BP. I reload for the 45-70, but love those old long cartridges. Did you rebarrel or rechamber your gun?? I also have a Remington rolling block in 45-70 that was setup up for long range BP. Do you know anything about what pressure that action can handle??

      Forgive me for asking, but I don't know how much experience you have with the 540X. Removal and replacement of the bolt can be kind of tricky for those who have never owned one and improper bolt removal/replacement can damage the action. Remington will fix it, of course, but there's no reason to go there if we don't need to.
      Please let me know if you need information on how to perform that task.
