    With my gun the fit and Finish on it are really good. I think they have come a long way. Now if they could get the barrels right it would be great. I haven't tried the lead boolits in it yet as I have been on vacation for a week and a half. Will...

    I am sure the lapping of the barrel had a lot to do with it. You can still see the galling but is much smoother. I really didnt want to send it back. The 2 molds i will be useing are the 330gr. Gould boolit and the 45-300 RCBS.

    Success! I shot the guide gun today with the Hornady 300gr. hp. Using 55.0gr. of IMR-4895. I got 2 shots about a 1/2" apart and one about a 11/4" from the other 2. Not bad! Will keep the rifle and not send it back. There was no fouling after 50...

    I already fixed the leaver along with a lot of stoneing and such. Another reason i dont want to send it back. I will post here how it shoots. The only other worry would be lead or jacket fouling in the bore.

    Remlin sent me a return no. I haven't shot it yet so I will wait till tomorrow. It would be going to N.Y. for repair. If one could only trust them to fix it right. ��

    I really don't want to send it back. I will shoot it Thursday. It looks like to me that during the cutting of the rifling the chips are not cleaned out properly and then gall the rifling. My guess. It sucks as this rifle looks real good,the only...
