    What is the groove depth of the Ballard rifling? I have had no troubles with microgroove but if a guy wasn't taking care of his gun it wouldn't take much to damage that shallow rifling. I think my 1894 runs about 0.0025" deep which isn't a lot.

    Very true but you can't use the normally much cheaper to purchase used rifle action to do a pistol since it becomes a short barrel rifle in the eyes of the ATF. It was a reply to

    100% machining your own action is legal, however, using a rifle action to do a handgun is not unless you get a SBR stamp.

    For gas check shank boolits I use old gutter for checks. It is 0.019" thick so THICK but using a hammer type check maker allows me to use a bit of extra force so they simply swage as deeper cups and work perfectly. I have enough old gutter to make...
