    Thanks! Took almost 6 hours, a whole roll of paper towels, a whole bunch of shop rags, half a bottle of Windex, about a quart of mineral spirits and then all the usual gun cleaners and oils once the heavy stuff was off. I'll bet I'm going to smell like cosmoline for a week :laugh:

    I'm impressed how well it cleaned up. It shows it's age a little bit but overall is in great shape! Hopefully I'll get to see how it shoots sometime soon, gotta locate some ammo first.

    I'll bet that it still bleeds cosmoline when you fire it and it gets hot. Mine was cleaned very well and still bled when I got it got lol


    And I learned a key reloading lesson today, always check for verdant priming, in any caliber....I thought all my 30-06 brass was boxer primed...it wasn't, so I've got a broken pin to replace

    I'll bet it'll bleed cosmoline just sitting in the truck on a hot day, haha. I wiped and wiped until the cloth no longer came thru yellow but I know the first time it gets warm it'll bleed like a stuck pig. My wife did threaten me within an inch of my life if she ever came home and found the stock in the oven :anonymous:

    She's going to be home on maternity leave any day now, I won't be able to get away with anything for a while and I don't dare to it before then for fear of irritating her. Before you start laughing, ever piss off a pregnant lady? It's not pretty and I just calmed her down after she came home and caught me with my headlights in the brand new oven :laugh:

    That's my plan, I have a shell that heats up pretty well on a hot day.

    I seriously wish there was a legal way to do this without going the short barrel rifle route...I'd conceal carry it

    Making the receiver is the hard part...I work in a machine shop and could probably do it, but the time is t worth it to me lol

    I work in a machine shop so I technically could...but that wouldn't be much different price wise than shortbarreling one, shop time is 60$ an hour

    Why not?

    Was getting pressure with the loads I was using. Couldn't get the velocity I was hoping for. So, hopefully I can get higher velocities with a lighter load with the longer barrel. Too much vertical spread with the case that full. Been especially busy this year at work so haven't gotten chance to develop a load yet. Prob wrong get to start til next year. It would've been easier to build a 308 bolt gun to be competitive but, figured I'd be different.

    so i googled since this reply apparently the practice it to take two receivers but both in half and weld them back together then the receive is a virgin new build so you dont have to really to any machining
