Third of many planned works that provide instruction in the correct and safe methods of gunsmithing.
Specifically, this essay discusses several methods that can be used to accurately chamber a rifle barrel. In Part I of the book Fred Zeglin teaches you all about accurate hunting rifles and discusses the variables that must be dealt with in order to create an accurate hunting rifle. In Part II Gordy Gritters, famed benchrest gunsmith, shares every secret he has learned over the last 30 years. Gordy finishes the book with a step by step process for bench rest barrel work.
If you are not familiar with how headspace applies to firearms and ammunition you may want to consider another title we offer, “Understanding Headspace for Firearms”.

Evaluating Rifles for Accuracy Problems (DVD)
This is a great instructional video. You can return to it as often as you like to get every detail the way you want it.
In this intensive course, Gordy Gritters, well known benchrest gunsmith and competitor, thoroughly explains rifle accuracy, including the problems that cause poor accuracy, he shows you how to completely evaluate/measure/gauge every aspect of a factory or custom rifle for accuracy problems.
He shows how to “slug” a bore to evaluate internal barrel problems, and has some terrific borescope footage that clearly shows crooked/off-center chambers, smeared lands caused by dull chamber reamers, chamber and throat “reamer chatter”, throat erosion, and other accuracy robbing problems.
Gordy then goes into detail explaining some of the best procedures used to correct all the accuracy problems in the action, barrel, stock, bedding, trigger, and other components of a rifle, including the “Big Five” things that are absolutely essential to bring out the full accuracy potential in any rifle! This is the same information that Gordy uses to help his clients win matches.

Forster Datum Dial$89.95
The Forster Datum Dial makes it possible for the handloader or gunsmith to use ordinary dial calipers to make normally difficult length measurements based on the case shoulder. By measuring cases to the datum line on the shoulder, the reloader can custom-fit the ammunition to a rifle’s chamber for the best possible fit for better accuracy potential and longer case life.
Gunsmiths can easily check the length of customers reloads verses the chamber.
This tool can also be used to double check headspace gauges if questions arise
Included are complete instructions, storage box, and a laminated chart with common datum diameters.Add to cart
