    barrel chambering advice help

    Right guys I have my barrel on order 30cal 1 in 10 going onto a parkerhale mauser action. Here's the thing in theory I know how to chamber the barrel I have practiced setting up a old barrel in the lathe. But I would like to actually see someone chamber a barrel for real just to see what I'm looking for and check in my own mind what I'm doing if that makes sense. Anyone help me out I live in Surrey but am happy to ttravel

    Thanks adrian

    Might be worth getting hold of Paddy Dane when he gets back from holiday, he might let you see how it's done properly

    Funnily enough, I've just done a PH in 308

    Not sure how you intend to do it (through the headstock or using steady


    I do it through the headstock, have 4 and 6 jaw inboard and spider chuck attached to outboard side.

    Set barrel to run zero run out using pin gauges, range rods or off the lands.

    Keep checking for centre at every stage

    Through the headstock is the plan but I will have to wait until the barrel arives to make sure it will reach through onto the spider I have mad for the other ends
