Sounds like it's going in the right direction Diggs. Please keep us in the loop.

I know you dont want to hear this but its Karma. You have the Dallas Cowboys in your Sig! If you switched to the Darkside and accepted the Dog Killer and got on the Eagles side all would be balanced and stability would once again would be equal with the Force.

Just saying......

You're right it IS karma. Dallas finally starts to win and my rifle gets back on track! Sweet!

Default Rem. 1917 actions

The Remington and Eddystone actions are extremely hard. Not case hardened but just the composition of the steel they used. Mybe they used old Railroad axle blanks or something.
I have two of those actions and I have made them into a varmint rifle (25-06) and am working on the other one now to make it into a 30-06 Akly improved. I have already broken one drill and a 6-38 tap and that was after annealing the spot that the scope mounts will be attached. I decided to go up to a 8-32 tap and it was strong enough to hold without twisting off. But I had to open up the holes in the scope mounts. (minor problem) I used some compound that you pack inside the action and also I built a clay ridge around the outside of the action where heat might migrate too. That allowed me to use my very hot oxy/acytelene torch to heat the spots for the scope mount holes. Without causing damage to the action itself or making it too soft for safety I also had some bolt heat sinks that I packed into the chamber/thread area just in case.
So far it has worked fine.
