do you whant to sell your rifleWell I finally finished my varmint rifle. I started this process with a Savage 110 action in 243 that I picked up years ago at a gun show. It had a facotry barrel that someone had cut off to about 10" why I have no idea. I had always intended on putting another barrel on it but not until I found this site did I have the confience to attempt it. I initially intended on putting a .223 barrel on it and believed I had only to change the bolt face and that would be it (not so). I ordered a varmint barrel from Mid-wayUSA and a bolt face; they arrived and soon found that my bolt a short action would not work for this shorter cartridge; after installing the new bolt head the bolt was to short to function in the action. I still had my sights set on a .223 so I ordered a complete bolt assembly; after recieving it was disappointed to find that it was still far to short to work in my action. After researching more found that farther modifications would have to be made for the bolt to function in my action and I did not find this promising after all the pain it had allready been. I had not done anything to the new .223 barrel (thankfully) and returned it to MidwayUSA along with everything else. They gave me full credit with no problems. I then orded a SS 22-250 Shilen barrel with a 1-8 twist from Midway; seeing that the 22-250 would function with my current bolt. Removing the old barrel from my action was no fun; I had to use some heat to break the adhesive that the factory uses on the nut and barrel and it was still as tight as a tick. I recieved the new barrel from Midway and carefully threaded it onto my action; I had for some reason a notion that it would simply thread on by hand, but it proved to be a very tight fit. I would suggest to anyone attemping this to have a vice that will hold the barrel very tightly, a barrel nut wrench and something to turn the action; I used a small steel bar very slowly and carefully. I finally got the barrel into the action and set the headspace against a go-gauge. I had to remove some of the wood from the barrel trench in the lamenant stock I had until the barrel floated freely. I got the rifle together and topped it with a platinum 6X24 from BSA, for the price I have been pretty pleased with these optics. I don't buy into the barrel breaking processes, but have followed the Shilen suggestion to fire and clean for the first five rounds. I could not be more pleased with the results from my Shilen barrel; the first five shots are within a quarter of an inch apart with three of the five almost touching. I have seen very little copper fouling; so I guess I lucked out on the barrel lottery. I can't wait to really get this gun dialed in and do some serious shooting. I will try and post a picture of the rifle; it is something of beauty, and I will post how the accuracy gets; all I have at the moment is factory rounds but look forward to handloading for this rifle.
