Wow, no other places like nss has them in stock? I though I saw brownells had them in stock or are you getting a custom chamber?

I got it from NSS. He doesn’t have savage prepped barrels in 300WM except for the factory barrel he sold me. That’s the one being installed now. The other one was done.

It seems alot of things are nearly impossible to get now at least without ridiculous wait times.. i did read that there was almost a 200% surge in online sales of ammo and firearm parts in general.. it would seem maybe people are expecting things to get worse.. i can't imagine what would happen if there was a legit pandemic, one that is really killing above 10-20% of the population. I dont think there is any real defense against a truly virilant deadly pandemic or epidemic. We saw how unprepared the world was for this little hicup.. my God, what would happen if some mutated strain of bubonic or other deadly virus hits that is resistant to any medicine we have and as much as the socialist would like to blame trump or even if it happened under a libtards watch you can't hold them responsible for what we are powerless to stop.. anyway, sorry for the rant lol

It’s not just that ppl are grabbing stuff. It’s the same as the toilet paper shortage. Ppl bought now so they’ll have it. Not specifically for defense. I’m buying a lot of ammo and I’m not stocking up for any commie uprising. They’ll rise up only when they take the guns away. Until then they’ll just rant and rave about guns.

So on a side note. One screw came out yesterday and he said there was no Loctite at all. He said the screws were seized. Something about aluminum and steel too hot or too tight. I forget what he said. I think a good old impact driver will do the trick.

Any metals that are different experience a process called electrolysis.. essentially the 2 dissimilar metals weld themselves to eachother. This is the reason i mentioned to you, on your new barrel use either i very light coat of high temp grease or anti sieze thats formulated for stainless. You'll see a perfect example of it on alloy car rims, you'll see if the have improperly used lead weights instead of sticky weights you will see white flaking where the lead balancing weight is.
As for everything being out of stock I'm mainly referring to gun parts and ammo that have always been plentiful. I imagine worker shortage has something to do with it but there is definitely a big difference between demand and availability right now and I do know alot of people , both sides of the political spectrum are very insecure about the future. We are seeing riots here like never before and to me it just feels like there is a unrest in the air. For me it really hit home how screwed we are from a food perspective if a real serious pandemic erupts. If enough people are affected, the food chain stops and i never realized how fragile that chain already is. We have been gardening now for a years and focusing on growing veggies that can be canned with long self lives, ive been practicing my fishing skills and hunting to the degree target skills.

My dad used to always say “this country can change overnight”. That’s why he always wanted us to have at least one gun. As we saw in March of 2020. Big things can happen overnight.

Ok, he just called. He got the screws out. Now he said that there was Loctite in there. Barrel should be installed in a few mins and I’ll give it a try early tomorrow morning. I think he used an impact driver. Maybe I should get one.

Definitely impact drivers and torque wrenches are a must in tool set... with the hopes of not having to use a impact driver but most definitely a torque wrench , probably 2 torque wrenches, one that does inch pounds and one that does foot pounds.

Yes they can. I truly feel a person (at least one with family that depends on them) should have the basic hunting and gathering , self defense skill sets

Maybe wrong place to ask, if so feel free to push me where it goes.. what is the most accurate trimmer for strait wall /hand gun cartridges? Ive definitely found LE Wilson lathe trimmer most accurate for trimming rifle brass but they are a little less that what im wanting in handgun cases.

What Cartridges are you needing to trim? I have not needed to trim any of my pistol brass. 9mm, 40, 45 really don’t grow much. I load 44mag hot enough that it only lasts 3-4 firings. Even 500 smith hasn’t needed to be trimmed in 3 firings.

That said, the Wilson trimmer is probably the most accurate I have found. Giuard is just as accurate and much faster, but will not work for pistol.

9mm, 38.spc, 357mag, 380 auto, 44mag.. mainly need to be able to trim 38 and 357 since the brass does get worked where crimped. Ive had a few where just that last tiny bit that consistently gets crimped and straightened have become brittle but your right on 9mm and 380 never have had to trim

If I were inclined to trim pistol rounds, I would probably use a Wilson. I assume that you have tried that though and didn’t like how it worked with pistol rounds?

Correct. Straightwall shell holders have a couple issues that cause you not to get a square trim and thats really important on a tapper or roll crimp on magnum rounds.. they index off the case rim on the q type holder and as ive found out case rim thickness varies a good bit..

I’m having sooooooo much fun reloading 45’s! It’s always been my favorite pistol round. Reloading them is great. Just not good to shoot indoors. You lose too much brass.

But...! My darling made it out of surgery and is back together with me!!!! Too bad all that wait was because of screws. Plus it’s the factory barrel anyway. The good barrel comes in a bit. I’m taking it to Mifflin Sportsman in PA and test her out on 1000y.

I’m not gonna overheat it anymore.

Great to hear:) I hope the smith didn't rake you over the coals and at least it should make the rebarrel go smooth:)

Bahh.. give it a few to get back into the grove. If its been awhile you may have to start at something close like 50-100-200 but it'll come back to you
