Re: Question about the AAC Rem700 1:8 308win Barrel ??

I just stumbled on this thread from a search because I bought a model 7 receiver on sale from Brownells to put a 700 takeoff barrel in 300 blackout on. The take off barrel was covered in the thread locking compound which I have always had a tough time cleaning off as mentioned above. It seams to res...

Re: How to ID seamless tubing

Mondo, if you remember when you are back in the office I would like to have the specks on the tube. A project at work has been hogging most of my free time so I doubt I will be much farther with my project then I am now. I got the tubing with the intention of using it for my 50 caliber project based...

How to ID seamless tubing

Last week I bought a band saw from a friend of a friend who is a fabricator/welder and I asked about seamless tubing. They gave me a piece of scrap that they were pretty sure was seamless based on the job it was for. The tubing is 2 inch OD, .065 wall T304/304L. How can I verify that this is seamles...

Spacers and tube strength

I was just perusing old and new posts and have notice on several ocations members state/ask that their tube has wall thickness of X and their spacers of Y so it should be strong enough. I belive that it is incorrect to think that the spacers increase the bursting stregnth of the outter tube. Since t...

Re: New 5.56 round to be fielded in Afghanistan

I was told that there was (at least at some point in the development) a problem with jacket fouling building up much faster and plugging the gas port and that it was due to the absence of lead vapor from the exposed based on the M855. I know there were some 105 mm rounds that had lead foil on the in...

That is nice looking. Is it common to mix baffle types like that? did you do it just to keep the length down or some other reason?

I agree with Ron about the complexity of the dynamics in a gun tube and can’t explain the fluid dynamics behind it. The relationship between venting and vent size and position that I noted was for the case of venting a .50 AE to the atmosphere, however I also vented into a shroud and to rotating c...

I had a section of 50 BMG barrel that I chambered for 50 action express. The vents where all drilled perpendicular to the bore and I believe they were 1/8th of an in diameter with a 1/4x28 tpi counter bore for a set screw used to seal them.

My expericne venting/porting barrels to decrease MV

I was reading the post on porting a barrel and thought I should post my experience because it may help others, along with intuition in figuring out the spacing and how many vents to drill when porting a barrel to lower velocity. A while back I was looking at ways to selectively vent barrels to achie...

I am not sure that 1/4 of a turn after hand tight really is .015 inch if the shoulder on the barrel and the receiver are square to threads. I bet if the shoulder on the barrel bears uniformly on the receiver then when you tighten with your wrench the threads on the barrel and receiver deform and the...

I had considered the Savage, but my obsessive compulsive disorder caused me to make other purchase (one being the EtronX rifle) and now it would be difficult to tell the spouse I bought a third rifle to take apart.

I never considered other cartridges partly because I have ’98 that I shortened by an inch and put a 7.62x39 barrel on and even though I lengthened the extractor claw it only really grabs the cartridge well while the chamber is holding it centered in the bolt face. I also just bought an EtronX rifl...

Running 220 Swift through 7.62x39 die

I was just wondering if anyone has run 220 Swift brass through a 7.62x39 resizing die so that they get better extraction using a standard bolt face. The web on the 220 is only 0.002 over the Russian round so I would think resizing woudl work well. I ask because I have been thinking of making a switc...

I think you are missing my point (perhaps it was not clear) but to say something can’t be made or is too difficult to be practical without any explanation of why is not helpful and just makes you look ignorant or too elitist to tell us why.
