    Thanks for the clarification Butch. Yes, you have two points dialed in. In theory the advantage of the Gordy method is that you're dialing in the first bit (let's say an inch) of the bore, rather...

    That's a great question Butch, and I've reversed my thoughts on it a couple of times as I sit here pondering it. My answer above, was really addressing the Gordy method vs chambering between centers...

    That's a good point Butch, and one I omitted. I check my setup frequently as I go along. I've seldom had anything move and the few times I've had a change in readings I've suspected machining...

    Here's how I do it.

    An excellent machinist might cut things closer than I do, but I oops'd the first time, so I take a conservative approach. Get your reamer drawing and figure out what diameter and depth you can drill...

    It's hard enough, even if you're already interested

    I've been interested in BR for years. But I've never been in a good position to try it out (until recently). For starters, there just aren't a lot of clubs running matches. I formerly belonged to...

    Do you profile your own barrels? If so, how does your technique differ when the shaft is scaled down that much?
