As of my last post; When I made the last post, I turned my rifle over to a local gunsmith to have the action trued/blue printed, the bolt lapped, and to have a small relief cut to the muzzle so that a muzzle brake could seat properly to the barrel. 15 weeks later I picked up what I would call a mess:
Action was supposedly trued, but the recoil lug and barrel were never trued, so the barrel was no longer centered in the stock channel. Cold blue was used to cover damage to finish caused by the barrel slipping in the vice. The bolt was briefly lapped, yet the lugs still make little to no contact with the action... Due to my complaints, all monies were refunded.
I talked with my FFL, the owner of Magnus Bullets here in Toney, AL; I asked for a good gunsmith recommendation. I visited the said gunsmith, described what I had hoped to achieve with my build, and now I believe I have a path forward:
True blue print of action, lug, barrel and bolt plus Parkerizing of the entire action.
More to come when I get the rifle back in hand.
