Thought I'd add a link to some MKII mags that are in stock. WOW. The OP is right - everyone is sold out or they're charging double their worth! :eek:

Smoothing surfaces that rub others is the best way. Start with 800-1000 grit wet/dry sandpaper, then move on to a felt pad with Flitz or Mother's chrome polish. Sanding is a hand operation, but a...

While I never dry fire any of my rimfires, the OP should be okay as long as the firing pin stop pin is solid steel and not a roll pin.

@MtnTX - If you find your bolt has a roll pin, ask Ruger CS...

I'd start by installing a "gunsmither" barrel block. It'll hold your barrel straight so it free floats in your new chassis.

We had the largest fire in state history (208,000 acres) last year. Now, the last 2 days have created "flood warnings" from fairly small (1/2") rainfall over the burn areas.

You're correct that the bullet pushes the (low oxygen) air out ahead of the bullet, but it's then sitting right in front of the muzzle. They say it takes about 16" of barrel for powder to burn...

Went by our west WM store this afternoon. Shelves were pretty bare except for AutoMatch. But they had 48 boxes of that sitting in the case.

I didn't buy any though, because I've still got plenty.
