Any pointers on rechambering? Did you do it by hand? Any advice would be appreciated.I've done a couple 357 Mag to 357 Max rechambers and I'm no machinist, but I'm fussy and particular and can be very patient on something like that, so if it just doesn't "feel right" that day, I'll let it sit until the next day. It's one of those things which, once you've done it, it seems like there isn't much to it. You have to actually do it before anything anyone tells you before-hand makes sense. Then,.... "nothing to it." No gunsmiths around here any more. Have to ship them off or do it yourself.
I was going to hold out for this rifle in 30-30 and 357. TWO 357s so I could make one a Max. I'd written the company and got a very quick, very polite and very non-committal reply, so I went the Contender Carbine route.
The one on the rack in that photo has me envious. I think those stocks would suit me better and there will likely be spares/repairs support for some years to come.
Not to drift this thread any worse but the B-14 ridge is a fine rifle. I have one in 300 win mag and dad also has one in 300 win mag and 308. They are boring accurate. During load work ups nothing I put through the rifle with 3 different powders shot over 1 1/2”/100ydsWaco
I looked at a 6.5 HMR a few days ago. I can’t seem to shake it. In a more traditional hunting rifle the B14 Rideline (think that’s correct) is another I like.
I'd ask any more knowledgeable than myself to chime in if I misdirect or omit.Any pointers on rechambering? Did you do it by hand? Any advice would be appreciated.
