    If it cycles fine, shoots fine and there's no signs of excessive pressures I don't see any problems. Are you getting any leading or powder coat fouling in the bore just ahead of the chamber? From your description you most likely are not. If you...

    It's taken me a long time to save up the money to by another Tikka. There was a couple of times in the recent past where I was going to stretch myself financially-thin just to buy another Tikka while I thought I had a chance but, common sense...

    When you work up loads, are you using the "Ladder Testing" method or the "Optimal Charge Weight" method? I'm asking because I purchased a new Savage rifle a while back that I could not get to shoot below MOA. I guess I had become spoiled by the...

    I finally pulled the trigger on the purchase of another Tikka. It will be the third one I've owned. The first one was a varmint model in 308. Up to then it was the most accurate rifle I'd ever owned. Illness caused me to have to sell it; along...

    I own two red ryders and compared to my 22 caliber Octane, their accuracy sucks. My Octane will shoot tight clusters with both the 14 and 18 grain pellets. All the other pellets I've tried in it were disappointing in comparison. I've found that...

    I like it. I have a store bought one but I see now I could have just as easily made one. What kind of metal did you use to make the holder? My store bought doesn't have the additional little "locking bar." I think it's because my metal...

    I'm cheap by nature so I always tend to buy the cheap stuff. This includes drill bits that almost always give up the ghost after about the fourth or fifth usage. I mention this because I'm also a Pack-Rat. I don't throw out my used chinese...

    I have a Umarex Octane and dismantling it only takes a fraction of a fraction of an inch of pressure to pull the captive-cross-pin out of its place and then proceed to carefully release the remaining pre-load tension of the spring. Mine is a Gas...

    I think the cross-slide has to be removed in order to create the space needed to remove the bolt in question out of the bottom of the cross-slide. It's been so long ago that I owned that little mini-lathe that I'm just making these suggestions...

    My very first metal lathe was the harbor freight mini lathe but, I'm having a hard time picturing which bolt you are talking about. Maybe I'm misunderstanding you a bit. You state, "You got the old tool post OF the bolt or OFF the bolt?" If...
