    The Barnard uses coil springs. I have two and have barreled 5 others. They are my preferred action for accuracy builds. Never worked on one that required any type of blueprinting. Pic of the assemble here http://www.barnard.co.nz/actions.htm

    I believe the barnard action also uses belvelle washers for the firing pin. the ones using this system have very short firing pin travel and fast lock times.

    The 45-70 is 2.1" case length the 110 is 2.6" case length so the bullet is having to jump .500 before the rifling even starts to engage it. This isn't throat but "extra" chamber .020 bigger than the bullet then comes any throat length on top of...

    If you don't want to salvage the bullets the wire strippers work very weel and the 1" conduit over the ram saves on travel and speeds it up a lot. I have used 1" steel conduit 1" - 1 1/2" taller than the bullet in the shell holder to pull bullets...

    A flat aluminum cover with a small protrusion into the lead would act as a hot plate and warming spot for moulds and ingots to pre heat some also. It doesn't reduce or slow oxidation, On a 2 pot set up it may with a properly alighned hole reduce...

    If it was a high volume mass produced item the price would be out of line, but, as a very low volume item no one is making a bunch of money off them. Interesting design and they must work well for Brownell's to carry such a crudely manufactured...

    Another place to look at play is in the locking lugs, hood fit and the depth of engagement on them set by the barrel link. Solid lock up between the barrel and slide is controlled by these as well as the rails fit between frame and slide. How many...

    On that model the bore is 1.57" so it is too small to do 50 BMG blanks thru the spindle. Compare it to the other lathes in the Grizzly line and note the difference in spindle bearings and grind spec. on the ways.

    The 45 Colt was around long before any type of standards. The 45 Colt predates SAAMI by 50 years. Most of the Colt issues are do to this. In equal toleranced chambers/guns they are indistinguishable.
