    Yes sir

    I guess a Barnard (being ordered). really didn't give it too much thought. I figured I had to have at least a 1.3 for the case even for fire forming.

    please drop some science on me kind sir:) This will be me first experience with this.

    1.3 is not as common most shanks are 1.25 and if that will work I can look around the shop and see what I can find. How long? will 18" suffice?
    What cartrige is it going to be?

    A 1.250 is not going to leave much shoulder with that thread tennon. I don't have anything bigger at the shop right now.

    Thanks Jim. I talked to Kevin too and he felt the same way.

    Mudoc I think that's too small for me.
