This is my first time trying to remove a barrel so I can install a remage barrel. I have installed remage barrels but have never had to removed a factory barrel. I bought a cheap rem 700 in 243 on clearance from wally world. Its never been fired. I bought a wheeler action wrench and barrel vise. I degreased the barrel and I used rosin on the wood blocks. I crank down the barrel vise and at first it won't budge but eventually the barrel starts to turn in the vise. Am I doing something wrong? I am not opposed to purchasing another barrel vise so if there is a much better one out there, please let me know. I am not sure that I am so impressed with the wheeler vise. I have also seen where some people use hydraulic presses. Is that better than a barrel vise?
