    Jim,

    I certainly would not argue that the fit of the bolt is the most important thing for centerfire or rimfire actions.

    I was simply pointing out that how a rifle's bolt operates has an effect...

    Centerfire,

    Jim,

    Which rimfire action are you using?

    Closing cam is the cam (s) in the action body or the bolt lugs that assist in closing the action. Cocking ramps/cams certainly have an effect on cocking...

    Tim,

    I believe shooters can learn to overcome a great many things and still perform to some level.

    Jim,

    I have no doubt a pre-64 Model 70 will do this. But rarely will they do it as smooth as the one in the video.

    The thing was pointing out is our rimfire actions rarely close as smooth and...

    Tim,

    You are correct, centerfire actions do this. Well, those that aren't bound up.

    The thing I was pointing out was how smooth the bolt falls and closes. Most centerfire actions will slam shut...

    Eidolon,

    In my experience anything that makes a rifle easier, and more consistent/reliable to operate helps!

    Placement is everything. The crown should be at the roundest, tightest place in the barrel.

    That is very easy to say, and very difficult to do.

    It would be easy if all barrels had a nice taper...

    Apology To Mark Penrod

    One of the reasons I started this thread was to show off Mark Penrod's workmanship on a pic of a crown he sent me.

    Somehow in my feeble mind I confused Mark Penrod"s name with Brian Voelker. The...

    Dennis,

    Which chamfer are you referring to? If it is the one in the barrel bore, I would suggest you always break that edge. A sharp edge can be damaged easily.

    I agree with GsT. I've seen some really nice crowns done with hand tools. I've always been against the type that have a pilot that goes up inside the barrel and you turn the cutter by hand.

    Barrel Crowns

    Barrel crowns are not often discussed on the forums. Perhaps they aren't important and don't need to be discussed?

    It would be very difficult to get accurate readings.

    I find I need everything held in place so the only thing that moves is the indicator.
