Gunsmith Notes, Ruger 77/22 Setback and crown L.R, .22 Magnum and .17 HMR:
CPC headspace gages barreled action upon arrival, noting any changes to be made. Setback breech by .175, cuts shank for SAAMI minimum headspace. The newly cut shank area is left larger fitting the receiver hole with a line to line fit stabilizing the barrel in the receiver. A reamer pilot is fit to the exact bore size then hand bolt match chamber reamed concentric with bore. Chamber is hand polished, bore is hand lapped, a new lock down spacer is locktited in barrel's V cut to insure proper tightening. Extractor slots are recut. Muzzle end bore is indicated within .0002, a new 11° recessed target crown is cut for accuracy. Bolt halves tightened. CPC measures the gap between the bolt halves, grinds and installs a pin that tightens the halves. Tested to be a excellent reducer of flyers and tends to round out target groups. If rifle is shooting low, customer should note this so we can adjust.
Gunsmith Notes, Ruger 77/Hornet:
CPC headspace gages barreled action upon arrival, noting any changes to be made. Un-screws barrel, setback breech end by two threads (.100). Match rechamber either in .22 Hornet or K-hornet, customers choice. Both caliber reamers were made with the same minimum length throat so both create similar accuracy.
"BEYOND" BOLT TIGHTENING: A 2 part bolt rework for 77/Rugers. A new heat treated pin is made and lapped in to tighten the gap between the 2 bolt halves. A new tool steel sleeve is heat shrinked and ground to fit inside bolt body. New internal sleeve makes the pin last longer. 2 part beyond bolt tightening is standard with all 77/Combos. On rimfire rifle versions, bolt tightening reduces flyers and tends to round out target groups. On the longer Hornet bolt, it reduces flyers and produces 25 - 30% accuracy increase.
