No. I have been neglecting my duties, but I hope to get some more testing in over the weekend.

Re: A New Rifle
Did you get some testing done?

Re: A New Rifle
I did. I now have a group 3/8" high X 1 1/4" wide. I need to bed the action I think but my Acraglas kit is old and dried up so I need to purchase a new one.

Re: A New Rifle
After finally rounding up a Brownell's Acraglas kit I bedded the action and recoil lug on the 25-06 today. Now (as the theme from Jeopardy plays) I'm waiting the 9 hours until I can see if I have a one piece rifle/stock or the hoped for two piece!!

I hate this part . . . . . . the waiting.

I know that feeling all too well, RJ. It's one thing after another. Doctors are especially bad to keep you waiting. I get an appointment for 1 PM & the girl calls me back to a room at 2 PM. She says the doc will be in in a minute. I tell her, no he won't. Half an hour later he wanders in & asks "Have you been waiting long?" I rub my chin & tell him, :Not really. My beard has only grown half an inch since my appointment time." ......Paul H

Re: A New Rifle
PHEW!!!! :cool:

Everything came apart and I was very pleased with the "ooze" of the Acraglas *. My aplogies for picture quality, but I'm not going to take it all apart again :p

Recoil lug and front action screw hole filled nicely!

"Ooze" filled clear to the bottom of the front action screw. Good thing I had plenty of grease on the screw!!

Rear action screw from the top:

And bottom:

I also put some Acraglas along the sides of the action to take up the gaps there.

Here's what it looks like after dying the Acraglas.

Now I have to wait another 2 days for the Acraglas to "cure" before I can shoot it.
