Well yesterday I threaded my barrel and double seated it, then started cutting the chamber for the my chosen round, 243 Winchester .

You cut the chamber AFTER installing the action?

No, Sorry for the misleading pics. We can't take pic while lathe is on and running. I chambered the barrel in the four jaw head in the lathe, while the action was off.

All test fired and ready to go. Yippppeeee :party: :party: :party: :party:

Nice!

What formula is used to determine the minimum barrel thickness from the chamber forward?

That lathe (from what I could see of it) looked very similar to the one that my company had in the shop. Only ours was driven through a Getrag 4-speed transmission which gave it a possible 16 speeds I think, maybe more. :dunno: It would never have been accurate enough to bore a rifle barrel I know that much about it.

So Mike, what's your take on the cryo process? Hype or reality? I was getting a ton of emails about a year ago from a cryo company around here that claimed all the same miracles. Then they slowed to a stop. :dunno: The procedure is/was more expensive than a good pro blue job. I don't think there are enough pro target shooters around to support such a program. And the benefits don't seem to be worth it. However, cryo treating metal has been around for at least thirty years in the automotive field. Axles, u-joints, and similar parts which undergo extreme stresses have been cryoed since at least the early 90's and possibly earlier.
