It sounds like you already have some fancy stuff. Why not just do a 223? If you put an accurate, tight twist barrel on it you can shoot probably 80 different types of bullet (which might come in...

The only time I've had to deal with FFL BS when getting a gun repaired by the manufacturer was when I was sent a different s/n, i.e. replacement instead of repair. Then I had to jump through hoops...

Around here I think this is mostly due to the hunting rules. The muzzle loaders go out first (well, second after the bow and arrows) and they get more tags issued. Last I looked you need a law...

In my opinion the best small caliber setup in a R700 is a 223 WSSM. I have a rifle that can go between 510WSM, 7WSM, 7mm WSSM, and 223 WSSM with a barrel swap. These all feed from the same 10 round...

In my experience it's functional. It is an easy way to make a barreled action match in color/finish. It holds up well to solvents, corrosion and typical wear. It is not always the prettiest...

Why be nice to it? The whole point of that setup is to hot rod it. Barrels are consumable, so I would say have fun with it. If you want something slower then there are plenty of factory rounds...

You must be talking about a regular full size ruger 77. My 77/22 Hornet has a voquswarten (however you spell it) sear. I don't know of any other trigger options that fit this model.

Is he sizing .375 down to .22? You are taking the body of a 223 case and squeezing it down to hold a 22 bullet. This is significant deformation of the metal. This single operation might be...

What does fired brass measure?

Where did you read that? I don't see how a r700 wrench would work on a mini.

The mini has an integrated recoil lug. I use a big crescent wrench with scraps of soft aluminum. The mini barrels...

If the bolt is still hard to work when it's already cocked, then it's not the ramp. That's why I suggested taking out the firing pin assembly and trying the bare bolt in the receiver. If it's...

I have three 22" howa mini barrels in 223 that are 9 twist. I think this was the version before they went to 8.
