We recently did a thread about the worst kit we'd bought for stalking. I posted that I'd spent a fortune on a bore guide which doesn't fit my gun. I have a Sako 85 and the sliding collar on the guide wouldn't fit into the action.
Callie PM'd me to say he lives nearby, has a lathe and would be happy to skim the collar so it fits.
I went round to Callie's last night. His workshop is the kind of facility that I aspire to have in the future. He very kindly skimmed the collar. Its now a perfect, bespoke, fit. I also got some brilliant tips on home loading.
Thank you Pat for your help with it. Its much appreciated.
