Freebore of .020, .030, or .040.

Does anyone have a 6PPC chamber reamer they'd like to sell?  Or rent?

Phil, I have Sinclair and a 21st Century hand tools.  I can speed things up a little on the 21st Century tool using a drill.  Still, I'd rather just be rid of this chore.

I'm wondering whether anyone in Canada is set up to neck-turning (for a profit) for other shooters?  My guess is that this would best be done by someone with a lathe.  I find neck-turning by hand a pain and would gladly pay to have a couple of 100 cases turned for me.

The last CM barrel I ordered was from Benchmark through Gary Eakin at Big Horn Sales. Do you have someone lined up to do the bluing for you? That may be more of challenge than finding a barrel supplier.
I'm surprised to hear that having it blued would present a challenge.  Isn't this kind of Gunsmithing 101?

BTW, I'm now vacillating between C-M and stainless.  I've discovered that there is a far greater supply of SS than C-M, and, as a result, I may decide to go that route.  If I do, I'll have the whole rig cerakoted to avoid the blued/stainless look, which I really dislike.

Does anyone in Canada sell chamber reamers?  I'm guessing probably not, but thought I'd ask before looking at the US suppliers like PT&G.  I'd like to purchase a 6 PPC reamer for a build.

Centerfire Discussions / Custom BR Action
« on: February 03, 2019, 11:13:49 AM »
Since I've already asked about barrels, let me ask about actions too.

Who in Canada can supply the top custom actions?  Most would have to be imported, I guess.  I'm thinking of BAT Machine, Stiller, Kelbly, Defiance, Surgeon, etc.

I'd like to build a custom varmint rig, but with a BR action and topnotch barrel.  I'd probably go with a single-shot action.

There is a very good barrel maker, HW Precision (site sponsor) I do not believe they do CM at this time.
Out of interest what is the your need for for CM.
Purely aesthetics.  I don't like the blued receiver/stainless barrel look.

I'd like to purchase a top-of-the-line match-grade barrel for a project.  I would like chrome-moly.  It would be in 6 mm., with a bull-sporter contour (.700 diameter at the muzzle) and 1-14 twist.

Who in Canada might have this barrel in stock?  If no distributor up here in Canada has one, is it possible to order directly from a US maker like Krieger, Shilen, Bartlein, Broughton, etc.?

Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated.

if you see one in canada then grab it, they will not ship to canada anymore. Grizzley no longer carries them and will not ship or bill to a canadian address...

 Okay, so the bad.....they are crudely machined, the threads are sloppy and the backlash is horrendous. while loosening the elevation lock you will witness the entire post and top lean to one side or the other, so much so that you have to guess how much to adjust the elevation because when you tighten the lock up the post will right itself and chances are you will now be to high, the threads on the post and the windage adjustment are crude and sloppy, and with the cable, well as you turn the handle first the cable has to take up the slack, then the top will move, a easy fix with a zap strap, at close to the $500 usd price tag they are and never will be a viable option in the shooting world..

the $169 USD on sale they are $13 better then a caldwell BR 1000 rest, however both entry level rests with lots of user unfriendly quirks

sadly there is no entry level decent front rests on the market, the Joe Cowan rest was the best you could get for under $300 8 years ago, sadly he is no longer making them, and the closer you get to the 1K mark the better off you are with a John lo front rest, true windage movement rather then sinclairs pilot type windage

I ran across a couple of decent-quality entry-level front rests on the Protektor Model website.  They resemble the Bald Eagle slingshot-style rests.  One, at $195 USD, has a non-adjustable top, and the other, at $295, has a windage-adjustable top.  It's shown below:

Both are cast aluminum.  As for access for Canadians, there shouldn't be a problem (as there is with the Bald Eagle rests).  I've ordered bags directly from Protektor Model.

This is a very late reply to this thread (maybe too late to be of any use), but thought I'd put it out there.

Some of the guys on the Rimfire Central Forum came up with a way to modify the Bald Eagle windage adjustment system by replacing the cable.  It's described in the following thread:

As for the disadvantages for this rest noted by Yodave, I might add that I've not noticed them and have been very happy with my Bald Eagle.  I have the cast iron slingshot model.

Thanks a lot, guys.  Your comments have been extremely helpful.  I will now stop worrying about the shallow seating and hope that the Bart's and Watsons shoot as well as they're supposed to.  In my reading, I ran across reference to Berger "column" bullets.  I must confess that I don't fully understand the principle behind them, but thought I'd pick up a box of the 64-gr. 6 mm. bullet.

Is there an agreed-upon opinion about the minimum distance that the bullet should protrude down into the case neck? I ask because I've discovered that the new-to-me Sako 6 PPC I'm loading for seems to have a long throat, and to seat the bullets I want to use so that they touch the lands (68-gr. Bart's and 68-gr. Watsons) puts the bullets out so far as to give me less-than-usual bullet/neck contact (less than half the length of the neck). Of course, I could seat them deeper, but this would introduce a certain amount of jump, which I'd like to avoid if possible. 

With the Bart’s touching the lands, the base of the bullet is .121" down the neck. The Watsons end up about .140" down the neck. I don't plan to work rounds through the magazine, so getting the OAL to work through the mag is unnecessary. I'm using the Wilson chamber-type straight-line seater (and the Wilson chamber-type neck sizer as well).  I’m wondering whether this amount of contact (like the .121” with the Bart’s) will produce enough tension and I’m concerned about creating excessive run-out.

Any insights on this?
