Gotta wonder if a .17 Mach II would be a worthwhile rebarrel for a 591. I'd think they'd work either with the factory 5mm mags, or with a factory 541/581 .22 LR mag.

Also, wouldn't it be easy to...

I think the Core-Lokt is a good bullet for the .30-'06 and slower cartridges for eastern whitetail deer hunting. That's what it was designed for... a quick-opening bullet that had the core 'Lokt' to...

The Core-Lokt is notorious for expanding too rapidly at close range from an '06. It does not work well at high velocity... like out of a .300 Win Mag. It's not a penetrator, either, if it hits...

The K-Hornet has the shoulder blown out to increase case capacity. It stands to reason that a regular Hornet die will set the shoulder back to match that of a standard Hornet cartridge. You could...

I think the coyote in the video was a raking shot too, in that the bullet is striking the sternum at a steep angle. IIRC bullets that ricochet when striking a flat surface at a sufficient angle tend...

The only thing I'd worry about with that high of a muzzle velocity is having the bullet blow up on the surface and not penetrate. It's my understanding that the NTX is a very fragile bullet... what...

In terms of bolt clearance and sufficient but not excessive intrusion into the barrel ('3 rings'), how would a gunsmith check these?

If the bolt protrudes too much, or there is insufficient...

Replacing a bolt on a Remington 700 action

I have a NIB Remington 700 EtronX rifle in .22-250, and I'm in the process of converting it to a conventionally-fired rifle. I have a new made-by-Remington 700 short-action bolt with the .308 head. I...

I would LOVE to have my BSA Martini Model 12 takedown action built into a rifle like that... who does this kind of work today? I think I'd have two barrels made for it, a .17 Fireball and a 6x45.

From what I can garner, a .17 Mach IV will fit in a FB chamber, but not vice-versa. Not a good idea to fire the Mach IV in a FB chamber unless it's checked by a...

If a barrel is accurate (well-made, properly installed) will it shoot well at any length? I know that...

I think that if the 17 WSM had come out before the HMR, it would be dominant... but the HMR can be more easily retrofitted to any rifle that can accept .22 WMR. Not so for the WSM.
