    Stuck in Dunedin

    Hi guys. I am going to be in Dunedin on week days until 27 January while I get 15 minutes treatment per day, the rest of the time twiddling my thumbs. Feel free to PM me if you want a chat or if I can attempt to answer questions.

    I had a lump removed from my temple and am getting radiation to tidy up anything they might have missed. Not a big deal and I feel fine.

    As long as they didnt remove the part of your brain that contains all your knowledge about firearms.

    Good luck and happy new year to you.

    The silly question is the one you didn't/wouldn't/couldn't ask when you had the opportunity.

    Hey - great offer, its an ill wind that blows no good - wishing you a speedy and full recovery!

    My question - If you prefer I'm happy to have it via a PM or a chat . . .

    What instructions would you give a gunsmith who is to fit and chamber a new barrel into a 22 RF target rifle - especially re chamber spec and head-space etc. (Its not so often tackled these days and most 'smiths are a bit evasive with recommendations, which suggests to me they don't have a real handle on it)

    Thanks

    A target rifle should have a 'match' chamber (ie: minimum dimensions) where a sporting rifle can get away with more generous dimensions for reliable operation. There are several varieties of 'match' reamers, all of which are good and any difference is unlikely to be noticed unless it was fired in a bench rest. Barrel fit and headspace are more critical factors. A target barrel should ideally be screwed in with a neat fitting thread and even shoulder contact on the receiver ring. Luckily, with most match barrels you will find greater performance difference in the ammunition rather than the barrel.
