There are two camming surfaces involved. The closing cam or ramps are machined into the locking lug seats. The extraction cam is machined into the rear of the receiver bridge and the root of the bolt...

Depends entirely on what model of rifle you have in 6.5x55. I do not consider the Swedish Mauser to be suitable for conversion to 6.5-06. Any 98 Mauser or commercial action would be OK.
I also don't...

If a 308 does not shoot well using 41 of 4895 and a 168 Sierra, there is something wrong with the rifle. Can I assume the stock is properly bedded? GD

Of course you are really thinking of an 1895 Wichester or the 1885 single shot; not the 1892. The 30/40 is a favorite of mine and I have a few of them. I pick up brass or ammo whenever I see it and...

A lot of people forget (if they ever knew) that the 338 Lapua was originally introduced, not as a long range sniper round, but as a big game hunting cartridge. The first rifle I handled was a Sako...

Look, the reality is that either action will work quite well to build a decent 1000 yd capable rifle and for a lot less money than is being mentioned here. I have good long range rifles built on...

There are a lot of pros and cons to both actions. In some cases the same feature may be considered to be both pro and con. I'll attempt to cover most of them. I will reference the true pre-64 Model...

Of course, if the basic premise of the book is that it is the Walker design which is the root cause of the mishaps with Remington rifles, it is incorrect; which kind of colors the findings. GD

The time and effort spent truing a factory action will be well spent only if the action was seriously deficient in the first place. In other words, if the action is visibly flawed, remedial work will...

Because the Ruger 77 is not a common choice for the home gunsmith. Remingtons, Mausers, and Savages are more commonly used by hobbyists. That said, I am quite certain that you could call Pac-nor or...

There has never been any definitive testing done which proves one case shape is any harder on barrels than another. The truth is, the 6.5/284 and the 6.5-06 erode barrels at about the same rate if...

The 260 is the 308 Winchester necked down. The Creedmoor is slightly smaller with a sharper shoulder and longer neck. The 6.5x47 is shorter yet, sharper shouldered and features a small rifle primer...

Both seem to perform about the same as far as accuracy is concerned. The 260 has a slight ballistic edge. In the same general category, the 6.5x47 Lapua isn't bad either. GD

I didn't say there has to be distortion of the bore; only that it seems likely. In addition, the amount of distortion may be insignicant from a performance standpoint. On of the more accurate hunting...

That is a fairly severe bend and I can't see how one could avoid a certain amount of distortion of the bore. If it was mine, I would probably have straightened it and would have no qualms about...

It is strange that Ruger chose to produce barrels which were so large. Perhaps they did this to accomodate Hornady bullets which are .312. Winchester bullets I measured are .310. Some old CIL 215...
