    So... I’m an HSM guy. I started with mastercam, and that was ridiculous. “Very powerful” as they say, but not what I needed for my purposes and was very unintuitive. And expensive. I used HSM with...

    That’s exactly what we did: our print leaves a lot of gray area, so different tool houses have very different geometry.

    We predrill the bore, but the form itself is cut in one pass. We’ve tried a...

    Grind house recommendations

    Mornin,

    Looking for a US based grind house for a form cutter we’re having trouble with. Large quantities, odd geometry, carbide, and high surface finish requirements. Cutting pure copper. We’ve...

    That’s the caliber we’re issued, so that’s the one I went with. You’re totally right, and honestly big Army agrees as well. I’m excited; this is the biggest thing I own minus the 3#er black powder...

    That makes a heck of a lot of sense. I’m still playing with good ways to hold this on the surface plate and haven’t really settled on something I’m confident I can rely on. So far the three bottom...

    7075 or 6061? Any thoughts? I prefer 7075 as it’s a bit less gummy in my opinion.

    Keep in mind I’m not experienced with bedding whatsoever. I thought aluminum bedding was superior to glass bedding. Is that not right?

    Howa 1500 in .300 win mag is in. I’m pretty impressed for the money. If I could have found it with a stock for a little more I’d have gone for it, but they don’t sell it with the heavy barrel. I...

    Lots of good stuff here. Let me circle back a bit as I definitely left some holes in my intent. I’ve learned a lot thus far, and the scope has changed to suit.

    That’s the ticket there though: the only thing I own is the action. It’s a fun project, but I don’t really have a good stock I can trust, mostly because I don’t have one at all yet.

    Bolt action test bench

    Hello again,

    I went ahead and ordered a Howa 1500 action in .300 win mag per recommendations on this forum. For $500 bucks minus a few internet deals, I’m excited to find out if you get what you...
  16. “Blueprinting” an action... what and why

    I’m having a tough time understanding why this is a thing. Please correct me if I’m wrong because I’m not sure I get it, but it sounds like blueprinting an action is bringing it to as nominal to a...

    Pretty sure the suppressor is simply required. I might add a weight to the end of my barrel for simulating it, but that might be a bit too crazy.

    I honestly have no idea what the merits are...

    M2010 “budget” equivalent
