View Full Version : Question on sleeves...

01-19-2008, 10:34 AM
I have a 700 Rem that I'm wanting to sleeve, and I have a few questions. First how much clearance do I need between the action and the ID of the sleeve. Also would I be better off to mill a dovetail in the top for scope rings or can I find a scope base to fit a sleeve with a flat top? Also Just what do you use to attach the sleeve? I'm doing this pretty much just for fun and to have the experience as I have never done it before. Thanks for any advice you can offer. ~Jackson

This program may help you . It calculates fits .
Unzip and save all files to same folder.
Open properties to the main .exec file and click on program tab, Then uncheck the box " close on exit " . this will creat a shortcut in the same folder but ignore it. This is necessary to stop the program terminating prematurely . To start program click the .exec file.
I have never sleeved an action so I cant advise further.
