Is it possible?
« on: January 12, 2019, 03:36:04 PM »
Let me first state that I have not assembled my rifle yet but looking ahead.   As stated in another thread my barrel has what appears to be about average jump to the lands.  If loaded to 2.26” the jump for the 90 SMK is .058” and .096” for the 88 ELD-M.

If I can’t get it to shoot well is it possible to have the barrel re-chambered?  I suspect that would entail removing the barrel extension, threading the barrel so the extension can go precisely one more turn, recut the chamber and reinstall the extension. I expect the difficult part would be getting the extension threaded on exactly another 360 degrees.  The other issue would be what reamer to use.  There’s been a lot of talk about bad reamers, I wouldn’t want to reuse one of those.

You’re thoughts.
