    Thumbs up

    That looks great. Map this needs it's own thread don't you think?
    I'll sure be following it!
    "219 Zipper SR Mauser as built by a master" - there; I titled it.

    Sure, I'll start a thread on it when I get it together. While I'm flattered, master is a bit of an over statement. While I am sure that you and I are a lost bread doing this kind of work, I still consider myself only a few levels above a hack.

    I added the stop screw to an unaltered follower for more OAL of cartridge. I fire blued it with a torch and motor oil.

    I loaded these j words last fall and just tried them today. 4 clicks right on the old Weaver and good. Time to load more cast but this answers the question- do I clean the barrel between cast and jacketed?
    Nope.

    The reason I decided to use the Barrel Nut method was because at the time I did the re-barreling jobs I had no hands on experience in re-barreling anything. The Savage Barrel Nut method made it easy for me to adjust the head-spacing involved in the re-barreling of the cartridges I was working with. On the Enfield I went from the rimmed factory 303 case to a rimmed 30-303; basically the same cartridge utilizing a 308 bore barrel. On the K31 I went from the factory 7.5x55 Swiss to the 6.5x55 Swede.

    In both cases, the Savage barrel nut method helped simplify things for this novice do-it-yourselfer.

    Did you do the work yourself or do you have a local gunsmith you can recommend? I'm considering rebarrelling one of my Enfield #4s to either a copy of the Aussie's 22-303 or a 6.5-303 (The 6.5 Dutch Mannlicher is basically a 6.5-303)
