    I've shot an '86 in .45-70; yeah it hurts a bit. I've also shot a .348 Win in a Model 71 a few rounds. Just a few! Not a fun caliber / gun to shoot in my experience, at least from a bench sighting it...

    I've shot a .458 Lott a couple of rounds. That cured me of any desire to do so again. Ouch!

    Try a Surgeon inside wrench. It fits right up into the lugs; very compact. You can easily heat the receiver ring, insert the wrench, and unscrew the barrel easily. I quit using the outside wrench...

    I can recommend the Surgeon brand inside action wrench. Works great on factory Remington actions; should be fine on a Savage too.

    I'll vouch for the stainless pins. They work great. Only problem I've had was they hang up in some .257 cal. casenecks . Easy enough to clear out though. I haven't tried them on my black powder cases...

    That measure will work with any progressive style, or turret press. It's not very practical for a single stage press however. Works great for pistol loads. Best of luck! Joe

    Works well

    I've used mine for 3 factory 700 Rem barrel removals so far, and it works very good. I use a 3' cheater bar on a ratchet wrench to break them loose. It is very well made item.

    With the right connections at the Pentagon, Remington could sell a boatload of these contraptions!

    Lard oil

    I have been using "Plumbers Lard Oil" (I think it's called!) from McMaster Carr. Really good stuff on everything I've used it on, including threading barrels and chambering.

    The Mirror is very useful

    I use the 90' mirror by rotating it around a particular spot, particularly in the neck and throat area, and for inspecting crowns all around the circumference.

    The 90' Eyepiece is also a "must...
  22. Aluminum Frame versions of J- Frame
