BR Equipment + Components / + + + Bartlien 5R 7 Twist .224 Barrel + + +

This is a new barrel, a project got changed so it is offered at great savings to you. $450...

I can also fit it to your action if you wish. ($125 more)

I deep chambered it for .223 Remington and gave it a recessed crown. You can simply thread and fit this to the correct head space to your action or have that done... it would be a perfect replacement for a Remington 700 heavy barrel.

The muzzle is about .900" and the 2 inch cylinder is about 1.200" in length and the barrel finishes at 24 & 1/2 inches.

Not much longer.. action is trued, barrel is ready for the chamber... then the bedding... probably this Thursday...

LOL  :)

Okay, they are with your rifle...

I no longer have a use for these... I am not sure if Lucas is still making bore guides but when he was these were about $75 each landed in Canada.

Now $40 each...

Centerfire Discussions / 22 PPC neck diameter
« on: March 23, 2015, 08:07:58 PM »
Perhaps some experienced 22 PPC shooters can advise me.

I have a customer who wishes to have two 22 barrels ( one 12 twist, one 14 twist) chambered and fitted to his existing 6mm PPC rifle.

He will not be shooting in competitions, just informal target and varmints.

He prefers to turn the necks as little as possible and is thinking of one barrel for lighter bullets and one barrel for heavier bullets.

He will be paying for a reamer, preferably with a throat suitable for both.

I suggested chambering the 12 twist barrel and selling the 14 twist. He thinks he wants 3 barrels to play with. [22 PPC, 22 PPC and 6mm PPC.]

Some suggestions please...

Dennis

It is no wonder why it is hard to shoot good groups in gusty winds... even with wind flags...
 
here is a video of a wind flag wall ... it shows how much the wind varies ... can you imagine having that downrange to watch as you shoot...

If one had an old registration certificate you would think that would be proof enough the firearm is not being imported from the US but actually existed here in Canada... no duty/taxes applicable.... but that would be too easy...

I really have to disagree to what you are saying, it may be different out West, but here if you have your paper work in order, ATF forms, and invitations "THERE IS NO PROBLEMS" ATF forms take from 1 week to 4 and invitations take the length of an Email. I do not think that what happened 10, 20 years ago have anything to bear on what is now. I get a little perturbed at people reading the riot act on something that might have happened in that time period in order to discourage the present day shooters from going to matches anywhere.


Your post is the first mention of the ATF forms and the possible 4 week wait to get them...

So it isn't just drive to the border and declare your guns... it's apply and get your import/export paperwork in hand first, then drive to the border...

I don't understand the last part of your statement, I do not think that what happened 10, 20 years ago have anything to bear on what is now. I get a little perturbed at people reading the riot act on something that might have happened in that time period in order to discourage the present day shooters from going to matches anywhere.

If you are referring to clarifying the rules so no one gets screwed up trying to travel with guns then I am guilty of that. I know I would be pissed right off if I planned a trip thinking I simply had to declare I had guns with me only to find out I need the ATF forms when I hit the border and have to leave my guns behind... I am not trying to discourage shooters from traveling, I am trying to help them by clarifying the laws...

And it isn't a matter of east and west... that's ridiculous...

The key is to have everything in order.  Passport, Match Invite or Hunting License,  Import permit/permits and even hotel reservation confirmation.

I agree... the paperwork is required in advance... the US laws require that... and you don't get that paperwork at the border...

I also believe the same US laws require paperwork in advance of arriving at the border with the intent to cross the border with firearms and/or ammo... and you don't get that paperwork at the border either...

I used to travel all the time with rifles, handguns, ammo to the US and back... with no paperwork other than an invite... but then the laws changed and a permit had to be applied for and obtained. It took a month or more to get it... That's US law... I believe it is still in effect...

It isn't as easy as some suggest to cross with firearms/ammo... at least legally according to US laws... and the US border patrol are the ones to watch out for...

Dennis here is a reply to an e-mail I sent to a fellow US shooter who has been going to Rosebud on a regular basis.

A U.S. citizen needs to declare firearms at U.S. Customs (airport, border) so they can bring the guns back in to the U.S. without paying duty (and no hassles for any other issues); proves ownership.  This ony needs to be done once for each firearm, no cost, just keep the declaration for each gun.  Of course, have to declare guns (up to 3) on the Canadian side - $25, good for 60 days.  I have never had a problem, either country.  Once the Canadian border folks start checking the guns, they move my extra wine out of the way (I wonder what the import duty is on an extra bottle of wine, but have never been charged!).  Once I was asked by the Canadians about ammo - I explained that I had bullets and powder to load at the match, no loaded ammo.  No problem.  On the way back into the US, I have never been checked;  I just say I have some rifles that I have declared, a liter of Canadian Club and I'm gone.  Once, the US patrol guy paused, then asked why I had rifles in July (not hunting season). I said I had been at the Canadian Nat'l. Benchrest Championships, he asked how I had done, I said I won (2007), he said congratulations and I was off!

That be the reply from a fellow US shooter.  Sounds straight forward and fairly simple.

Calvin

I hope it is that simple. This doesn't mention anything about all the import/export restrictions in place (since 911) in the guise of Homeland Security.

Aren't there more US legalities to over come for a US citizen to export firearms and ammunition other than to show up at the border?

« on: December 16, 2010, 06:18:24 PM »
It is possible the heat will loosen the action within the sleeve, but it may not. An aluminum sleeve will heat up quickly  all around but the steel action will not and the sleeve may pop loose before the action bond is broken.

Worst case - you redo the action to sleeve... best case - the clean up of the old bedding isn't too bad and the re-bed is easy...

To remove a glue in action hold the stock level in a vise and  place an electric iron on the scope mount and plug the iron in, set it to a hot setting, and let it get hot for about 20 minutes... a little wedge under the barrel at the forend and it should come out...

I have sold a lot of Wipe Out and I have used a lot of it in my shop.  Hunting rifles that come in here with years of fouling get the Wipe Out overnight treatment. It works very well for removing fouling and copper fouling.

Centerfire Discussions / Benchrest history in Canada
« on: April 29, 2010, 12:02:02 PM »
Is there any such thing in the plans for a "museum of some sort" about Benchrest shooting in Canada. It isn't very old and it would be a good time to get a collection of stuff together...

For instance I have a patch from the first Super Shoot held in Canada I would be glad to donate if there is any such place to donate it to...
