Looking good, what is the rifling pattern on the barrel?
Any of these familiar?

I would probably guess standard, I don't believe it is an MI design.

Thanks, I am a little excited to shoot it. as I mentioned it has the 0.030 engraving that the chamber was designed to give and this is the first barrel that I actually see the bullet being engraved. and I know the chamber was done correctly with the 0.075 stick out.

First range outing

Well today I had really great conditions and this barrel did not disappoint me on how it shot. I know I have something to work with. I was tempted to put a tuner on it today, but with no bedding the results were going to be inconclusive.
But it does shoot pretty flat.



next couple of weeks I will be working on finishing the stock for this build. that is when I will really see what I have.

Grouping looks great, Lee. Nice vertical string that will be an easy tune.

Lee. That new barrel is shooting great. Flags look calm, you had a good day for testing. Like your ammo container idea.

Thanks, the rubber maid containers work great it can hold 6-boxes perfect for shooting a match. just don't tell my wife you know where the lost containers are at

I couldn't ask for a better day to shoot this new barrel, it had lulls for extended periods where I could see how this barrel shot. as you can see it shoots fairly flat, POA was dead center of the bull.

I hope I get a day or two like this when I start to tune.

Yes the vertical dispersion tells me a tune setting will not be that difficult. trick will be determining how much the tuner needs to weigh, I am thinking from the 5-shot group 4.0-4.25 oz.

That’s one thing I have to get ordered soon to play with, a tuner. Having three rifles with same barrel diameter at muzzle it would be nice to attempt a tune. Determining extra weight as a ball park is another matter with variables of barrel length I’ve read. 28-29” length barrels on both Martini and H&R M12.

The way wind has been kicking my butt a 149’ bloop tubs would be nice!

Brother Lee,. Great thread and results. Sad to see this as I'm sure it's going to raise prices of what I consider the best deal in 22,s. Looking forward to final results.

Hey Sandy, Thanks, you got yourself to blame, as I wouldn't have started this without your information on redoing a trigger. did you know it is a 90-degree sear setup? I got mine around 1.8-oz.
with very little upward pressure on the FP it gives great ignition. I am not sure about prices going up, maybe (I have another M12 waiting in the wings) I don't think you will be seeing these at 1K or more not a factory rifle that is.

UPDATE: Stock inletting done

Finished the inletting for the bedding bar. still need to fill and cap the chambers after filling them with tungsten particle. after that I can initially bed the bar to the stock. with the final full bedding done as the last step in the bedding process.

I think I will be able to get the 20-lb. weight I am after. with a brass recoil plate, along with 2 1"x4" brass round bar in the stock.




Still have the trigger guard to finish and as you can see I still need to finish sand and do the clear coat on the stock.
