    1st place- muzzle cntbrs won't go as deep as you need. 2 place- see if you can find a machinist to pull barrel and do it in a lathe, centered on the bore, NOT the outside contour. I have had a couple done in bigger bore, 43 Spanish and 45-70. Both...

    you might save back a few small pieces for vice jaws, liners, vice grip "not screw it up" ers. I have found them very useful over the years.

    I suggest you debur the holes first. Generally this is where the problem is. Guys get to going fast and slamming the blocks together. I use a round pointed stone on the dremel tool. If you take off too much, it won't hurt anything; just don't go...

    I looked into buying a "pellet maker" as a side business. Apparently you can make them from any wood, leaves, grass, cardboard, etc. You might look into a corn stove. Not recomending, my cousin has one and they like it.
