    I do a bunch of Proof CF barrels on Fuzion titanium actions. I’m not completely sold on the CF barrels, but people seem to be happy with that combo.

    I take that back. I had a .030" chamfer on the front of this gauge and I didn't program any tool nose compensation. I just flipped the gauge around so the "head" side went in first and measured the...

    Honestly, my gauge wasn't accurate enough.

    OK, I made a quick [approx] .200” datum gauge. I pulled two barrels from my barreled actions. I measured HS, the approx midway body point and the approx .200 point. The gauges don’t sit perfect in...

    I had a few minutes today so I made some “pin gauges” that should match a datum point at about the halfway point on the body of a 6 or 6.5 Creedmoor chamber. The first one I made got swallowed by a...

    I am not calling anyone stupid. You are implying that a chamber cut on a CNC machine produces less consistent chambers than one cut on a manual machine. I am trying to understand the logic behind...

    Can you explain why a chamber done on a CNC would be inherently harder to make "identical" chambers than it would on a manual machine?

    My prebore diameter, taper and length is identical between...

    You can compare tapered chambers better than two tenths with a pin gauge?

    Because I do not have the ability to qualify finished chamber dimensions to the tenth, I’d never guarantee that dimensional accuracy. But yes, I have no doubt die settings would be the same.

    If the reamer is already in a holder and “touched off”, yes. Once the barrel is dialed in, tenon is machines and threads fit, it takes about 3 minutes to pre-bore, machine a counterbore, pre-bore the...

    In the CNC world, it would save maybe 2 to 2-1/2 minutes over a full chamber and bolt nose counterbore.
