After looking at things more carefully, the bore is a little off center form the outside diameter of the barrel.
I've got the accuracy within what Comrade Komissar would say, "Is accurate enough for defending Stalingrad."
I think a kiss cut just to sharpen up the transfer from the end of the rifling to the counter bore will help a good bit. This rifle is numbers matching and I want to keep it all original in appearance.
The real proof will be when I finally get some re loadable brass and a mold.
A: I can tailor a load to the rifle
B: The shoulder ain't what it used to be. Had it worked on 6 years ago, it does not care for stout milsurp ammo.
Hmmm, I might get an extra butt plate..... I'm thinking do a little machine work here. The second butt plate I can modify to take a Limbsaver recoil pad. Ha ha! How's that??
