Simple question, that i think i know the answer to but anyway...

I have a reminton 700P in 300RUM, GAP did the works on the action, and also set the barrel back and put a match chamber in....i also had a vais comp put on

I didnt get a thread protector, but i would like to shoot it without the comp just to see how it feels.

Would this hurt the barrel in anyway?

I doubt it would, but i want to ask before i junk this barrel

Thanks

It'll be fine. Thread protectors really are just for protecting against impacts and rough field handling.

Thanks for the help guys...

And thanks for not flamin the stupid question!

I dont plan on shooting it too much w/o the comp, just becuase im sure its going to have some heavy recoil...but i want to see what kind of difference this comp is really making

With the comp its a tad more than my ruger 77 30-06...but barely

In your experience, how much difference does the comp make?

I don't have lots of experance with a comp, but a little. My limited experance is the diffrance varies some. The heavier recoiling calibers tend to take a higher percentage of recoil away than a light recoiling caliber like a .223. What you WILL notice is not as loud shooting, but espically to the sides without. As for stupid questions, +1 on what lonewolf said. We all had to learn someplace.

That would all depend on who's Comp you are deploying, I have zero experience with the one you own.....

You never heard of someone stumbling on something sitting down.... ??

Shoot 5 rds with & without it and give us a range report.... 8)

Back on track as well. I am thinking of having a 6.5x 55 built. Wanting a threaded bbl I figure to have a break on it untill I can get a supresser. What comp would you recommend?

Sorry but man Mike are you a Saint yet? If not i think you should be and i will be more than happy to nominate you and i am sure there will be a few others willing to second that. Thank ou for being such a top bloke and looking after the guys here.

As for the brake, i was thinking of getting one and was told that the diff between brake on and off is brake on (less recoil/muzzle flip but alot more noise as the gas and sound is reflected back at you) with Brake off more recoil/muzzle flip but kinder on your ears.

Then again i guess it all depends on the brake.

Coming in really late here, but I came here with exactly this question. Thanks, all! Just got my barrel threaded for a suppressor, but the suppressor won't be here for months and the shop didn't have the right sized thread adapter. I have a stand-in, but it's too short to cover the threads all the way. Glad to know I can still go zero my new scope!
