    I do it in sections.

    This old Mauser IS a fussy bed job. Im going to do the rear pillar first. Once that is done ill have a better shot at doing the recoil lug area and the first inch or so of the barrel. Then for the...

    Old Mousers

    I had a very similar gun to the one you mentioned. It was a M98 action on a huge Fagen mahogany stock. White line recoil pad and large Monte cheekpiece. It started life as a Benchrest rifle and was...

    Economy of Scale

    After watching the video and reading the comments Id say James has found a better way to make more accurate throats IN SCALE to larger number production barrels. Id do like the idea of changing the...

    Re cut barrel

    A dog point set screw has a dowel pin like on one end rather than a tapered point. Use it like a dowel pin with a drilled hole in your base material and then tighten. Its super strong. Thanks for the...

    Van Dyne days!

    The bases are epoxied to the action but its a good idea to JB the bases and rings Id say. I have never physically seen the bases move. The groups are round-ish and it never clusters shots and moves...

    Cautious

    In reality handloading the 7.65 x 53 is just as easy to exceed the 1891's intended loads as a 308 win would be. I did qualify the loads as 2600 fps and that is published 39,000 cup. That with a 130gr...

    Another idea for pillars?
