Will send it off to a gunsmith who will cut and chamber it with a Nevius reamer. Will order the Nevius reamer from JGS Precision. This barrel will be put to use on my 2013 rifle.
I have three Benchmark 3-groove barrels; two are reverse taper stainless (one is the Bill Myers build with the Hall and the other is a Gene Davis build with a FinnFire receiver) and the third is a standard sporter contour in a Remington 581 receiver. They all shoot very, very well, and will never leave my grubby paws.

I have the Nevius reamer on order at JGS. It's backordered.

Good to hear. Thank you.

As for seeing my heat beat in the scope, my bp medicine solved that

As I get older, and my vision deteriorates more magnification and light is better for me. I can still shoot iron sights , but i cant see the holes at anything less than 14 x.

Heres a disgustingly huge mega scope
I hear ya about the eyes.. The last time I was into serious target shooting, was as a 40 something, so what I could do then with a 6x or 12x or peeps, was something different than later on..
In later years, just a sophisticated plinker with sporters that had to have a certain look, and at almost 69 now, not even a shooter.
I refuse to aggravate my tinnitus curse.

Lotsof folks cant stand the look of a big scope on a little gun. It maybe generational. But , me, i think a dinky scope on a gun looks bad. Like space flight, I grew up during the Gemini and Appolo programs, tiny capsules on big rockets. But when I saw the Enterprise on Star Trek, I was converted

Big saucers on tiny rockets , is just more appealing to me.


But I scope everything now, even lever actions and mil surps

Tried it on some pistols , but just too difficult to keep the scope and eye alignment together for the second shot when its offhand. Red dots are slightly better, but mostly using irons on pistols.

Hmmm... that looks to be just a notch or two below the Hubble.

From post #7.

"Bigger tube means more light" is not accurate.
"but more importantly more adjustment" may/can be is accurate, just depends on the scope.

As far a the NF 15-55X goes, most of the shooters at the ARA nationals were using them last year according to there equipment list.

It's what I use, and it has been outstanding.
I'm currently using a SEB Joy-Pod X, not the Tier One Evo shown.

You might be right that a bigger tube doesnt mean more light, but my eyes dont know that maybe its just cause my bigger tubes have bigger objective lenses, or are just better scopes.

But like many things in life, size , imho, does matter

It's the objective size vs power, and better glass.

Interestingly the March 10-80X 56mm once cranked all the way up will have an exit pupil of diameter .70mm which is tiny, and will present a a greatly dimmed view and will be very sensitive to eye placement behind the scope.

Same thing happens with the NF 15-55X, but not nearly as dramatic at 55X which will give you a .94mm diameter exit pupil.

I prefer a minimum an exit pupil size of 1.25.
That's why I usually shoot mine at 40-42X.

The March would be looking good at 44-46x.
I've looked through several at 80X, and unless the target is fully lit by sunlight it really is kinda useless. Nothing wrong with the scope, it's just the physics.
Now if it had a 100mm front objective we'ed be in business.

Elton,

12-weeks is the normal wait time from Benchmark
You won't be disappointed the only way is if the chamber work is not done correctly

Hi Lee,

Took your advice and ordered the Benchmark barrel, 30" (28" finished), 3-groove, 0.900" diameter.

Greg Walley, gunsmith, said he could get a Nevius reamer, but I decided to order my own reamer from JGS, and then send the barrel and reamer to him.

It'll take a few more months, but I got enough experimenting to do with so many variables - ammo, tuners, etc......................

When you get it done shoot it before putting a tuner on it and if you don't mind send me a few 5-shot groups
I have a few tuners you can try

Another to look at would be the Sightron SVSS ED 27008, the glass in it is as good as the NF comp, to which i have one of those as well,.
