What I do for Rem 700 barreling is print out this sketch I made, put it over the lathe, and cross out all the numbers and put in the right numbers for that rifle in red ink.

For my belted magnums; 7mmRM, 300WM, and 338WM, I heaspace at .215", because I can't find any brass more than .215" from the case head to the end of the belt.

Obviously if you are building a rifle for someone else and don't have an understanding with them, you have to headspace at .220" and make it SAAMI kosher, but I know what I want.

Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
