    so, i have one inlet stock, fully bedded to the same basic action.
    i think this provides a tool to guide the location of the action screws.
    once those 2 holes are in place i have ref points for most of the rest
    thanks

    BTW Rick, I was recently gifted a book 'The Marsh King's Daughter' based in the "wilderness" above Tahquamenon Falls..... decent read by Karen Dionne with quite a bit of local color if that's your beat

    She's been off the road just enough to have actually fired a gun and caught a fish or three which I found refreshing. Her politics bleed thru some if that bothers you, but I read thru with a smile.

    I'm a hyper-fast reader yet I haven't had time to set down and read a book for years.

    I spend a lot of time on machinery, audiobooks are something I do quite a lot. It's expensive though.... I bill my business for it which helps. Some.

    Quick question: how are you going to get those pilot holes in the stock...not off axis in any plane...and with an O.D. that gives you a repeatable place to start and return to?

    Good shootin' -Al

    so thanks for all the input. it appears that if i want to shoot this rifle this year(nationals in sept), i need to do it myself.
    i have spent time this week prepping brass for fire form, and at the last min, decided to try the new bbl'd action in the other stock...
    bingo..dropped in bolted in.
    makes fire forming easier
    borden's quality includes repeatability,,,

    so i did as i said, i lined up the 2 stocks as best i could and drilled two 257 holes.
    i then took the new stock and laid out a center line. it shows the forward hole is off about 0.010.
    easily fixed when the pillar is installed. so all else will be laid out from the rear hole and the center line. the recommended cutters will be here tomorrow. got to figure how to keep straight, straight.
