so the rifle came in and i inspected and fully dis-assembled.
1982 rifle with OEM bbl...pretty tired.
ordered a replacement from krieger....just over one week from order to delivery(this tues).
( an in stock bbl !) a number 9 is close to the original tho i will use 24-26" as a finished length.
rebedded the action with pillars added. made new hex drive action screws.
installed the timney HIT-ST, breaks nice at 12 oz.
i need to look at bbl length/velocity with reloader 26. i can get 3000 fps with a 220 smk from 26.5"
sit back and wait time.
