    screw cut question

    i have a rem 700 7mm08 would half inch unf leave enough metal on the barrel for everyday use thanks for your help

    1/2" unf is fine on a 7mm. However, if I had a choice and the mod was compatible, I would rather have 15x1 metric thread.

    Take the rifle to Young Guns, have him send it to Steve Kershaw and get it done properly.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    1/2 UNF is fine for a 7mm-08.

    I personally do not like putting 1/2UNF on 30 cals.

    When you work out what the barrel wall thickness is at the thread root,,,,,,,,

    For that mod I would say the minimum thread size has to be 14x1, 1/2 unf wont leave enough barrel for such a heavy moddy, 15x1 is even better. JMO
