    Thread the action or take the barrel out clean it and the action up and lock tight it, the red works good as long as there's not too much slop in the fit.

    Sounds like you have it. The only other thing would a barrel too large to fit through the spindle bore. Look for a short head length so you can chamber the short barrels too.
