    I have a 1340GT and a 1440GT, both great machines and great value IMO, the reason I added the 1440 was the 2" spindle.

    That freebore will work with Hybrids but be a little short for VLD's, you'll need around the 0.220 for VLD's.

    IMO yes, I always cut the threads a little looser than everything else. I can't give you reason why but I'm always more cautious with BAT actions.

    Liseo
    The Barnard actions are very hard and don't lend themselves to modifying, I would contact them directly and see if it will suit your needs.

    If you ask Kiff for a no turn reamer you'll get a 0.295" neck, but I've got loaded rounds here with 130 Bergers and they measure 0.290" plus or minus 0.0005".
    Hope that helps.

    That free bore maybe a little long especially for Hybrids, 0.220 it about the norm for a 180 VLD/Hybrid compromise.

    Minimum no turn is 0.317 but with the quality (or lack of it) of Lapua brass I would suggest 0.315 and clean up the necks, the wall variation can be as bad as 0.002-3" on some batches.

    Barnard sell a lug/bolt to suit, but if you do "turn one to fit" make sure there is a relief so the bolt bottoms out on the action, I seen several that didn't and in turn didn't shoot very well.
