Gunsmithing / Re: Black Walnut BR Stock

"I'm going to experiment with the wood approach and see what I get.  "  autoxforfun, did you figure this out yet?  What liquid to use to mix with the wood's saw/sanding dust?  If not, I can ask my nephew who is a gunsmith and wood worker.  lg
 
LG, no I have not done any work on this yet.  I've got a few other projects around the house that I need to finish first...you know how that goes.  So, I'm open to any insights and suggestions you or your nephew may have....thanks !!

Hunting / Re: Heading out

Good luck.  I am taking a break today.  Thanksgiving dinner and Yellowstone marathon.  Best buck I have seen lately is wandering behind the house about 20 minutes before legal hours are over.  If he shows today, will give him a hard look.  Big bodied 8, just have not been able to study long enough to age. Wife does not want me to shoot off the back porch.  Will compromise.  Will set up by the fence around the stock pond. I could give Jeff Foxworthy inspiration for lots of material.

When i first heard about it I instantly formed opinions about this guy. So far I have not heard where he is from? I GUESSED the race. It is amazing that " bail reform" has put him back on the streets for previously running over the mother of one of his children. Only certain cultures treat life as not sacred! I can imagine how some will idolize the perp and a mockery will be made of his legal proceedings.
Know one said if he participated in the kenosha riots but i can only imagine he was a blm supporter who do not want to miss out on free looting without consequence!

Bolt Action Rifles / Re: 284 Win question
Last post by lg65cmsd -
Thank you Grant.  28" was what I had in mind and (if I live long enuf have it suppressed :) )  1:8" , 1:8.5" were in my head.  & 1.25, 1.2 inches at the breech end tapering to 1" at the muzzle was also in my head. 

Hey JVW, thanx for your input.  Yes, it is an expensive gun.  I bought it, used on Sniper's Hide,  intending to re-stock and rebarrel to 6.5CM but when I got it I quickly changed my mind.  It was too much gun- McMillan stock, bedded, etc to do anything to.  So decided to keep it a while , shoot it, and bought the dies and such to reload for it.  It shoots 155s Hornady ELD-Ms over RL-15 and IMR 8208 XBR powders real well at around 2850 MV.   I am very happy with it 'as is'.

I've another FN (PBR) action that my nephew used along with a chunk of curley maple and a Kreiger bbl to build me a 6.5.  And did think about just building out a 284 from scratch.  But,   I am not sure I want to go through the wait time to have another custom built.   

I started reading and seeing the 284 and got pregnant with the idea of having one.  And am not shooting the 308 much.  I shoot with an  army buddy who has a Remington that Lester Bruno barrelled and trued up, so I can shoot his 308 if I feel the urge.

So,  I decided to ask around and get some opinions and thoughts on this before I give birth to this idea.  Asking here is a good place to start.  Appreciate the views, Grant and JVW.  lg

Hunting / Heading out
Last post by LeadHammer -
Well I’m heading out this am, white tail.  Lost a few quarters of land to hunt on, but going to wing it. Wish me luck. Taking the Stealth in 6.5CM. -5 Celsius and up to 12.5 mph winds. Could be worse.

@Ig65cmsd

You have an expensive tool there; specifically designed as a sniper rifle around the 308 cartridge. I’m not a huge fan of the cartridge but everybody needs at least one 308 in their safe. If you rebarreled with a different chamber you are probably going to lessen the value of the SPR.

I am a big fan of the 284 and think you would probably enjoy working with the 7mm caliber. Have you thought about just building another rifle that would meet your range needs and doing it in 284?

Put that TT Diamond in my Rock River Arms gas gun (6.5CM) last year.   Fantastic improvement and worth the $$.   Plus it is the only trigger that I know of made, for an AR-10 platform, with the 1.5 #-ish  pull.   IMO, great choice.

Bolt Action Rifles / 284 Win question
Last post by lg65cmsd -
Hello All,

I have an FN SPR rifle chambered in 308.  The action is factory bedded into a McMillan A1 stock. I have been thinking about getting it re-barrelled and chambered in 284 Winchester.   I have a question for those of you who shoot this caliber.  What barrel contour, twist rate and length  would you recommend?  I am planning on using Berger's 180 grain Hybrid Targets. 

I am just a recreational shooter and I am a member of a club/range where we can shoot, from a bench, out to just past 1000.  I've been reading a bit and about the 284 Win and seems like many competitors shooting this distance are shooting/using 284 Wins.

Thanx and happy Thanksgiving, lg
