    Gammon Products

    I miss the days when Sinclair carried all the nice products from Bill Gammon. Has anyone stepped up to make barrel sleeves, bolt folders, Press and powder measure covers, etc.?

    It's called a woodruff key cutter. You can probably get by with a 12" diameter by 1/8". 9/16 diameter would be perfect and make it easier if you are using a manual mill, but it seems to be a...

    I know at least one guy that fits barrels with a Hardinge Toolroom Lathe. They use a smallish 4 jaw chuck and the spindle bore is reported to be 1.250. That may not apply to all of them. They were in...

    Very well then. Don't do it with MIG. Not saying it can't be done safely, just suggesting that there are better options. Weld away if it makes you happy.

    In today's rimfire benchrest world, 24" to 27" barrels are the norm. Of course 1.25" diameter is not.

    Tough competitor

    I will never forget a match at Unaka some years ago when I was running a .1507 agg after 4 targets. Target 5 I shot a high .2 and Wayne shot an .070. He has a way of pulling it out when it counts.
