Mostly because I just put it on the back burner.
In March 2017 I contacted Greg at SPR to build a Remage Bugnut barrel in 300 Sherman.
Also, I bought whidden loading and hydro form dies from Rich along with a go gauge.
There have been several delays along the way but I finally decided to finish it.
Here are the build details.
R700 LA SS
Bartlein 30" 1:9 twist Heavy Varmint
HS Precision take off stock with Atlasworx DBM bottom metal
Seeking Precision scope base
Vortex PST or Mark 4 ( have them laying around). Until i decide which scope to buy.
I havent been able to form any brass since the orings busted the very first time i went to use the hydro die over a year ago. I called Whidden but the website they gave me to order the orings required a tax id number so i done the best i could to cross refernece it. Long story short i winded up with 100 orings that are not correct.
Well today i ordered 18 orings from their website (didnt have that option a year ago) so once I get them hopefully my die will work and i will start the load development journey.
I started to open the barrel channel tonight with socket and sand paper method. Yeah thats gunna take awhile....
I will be using 225 ELD-M along with 208 ELD-M and also 215's.
