That is outstanding work mate...no way I would ever be able to even think about doing that sort of work. Admittedly I’m not trained in “fitting and turning”, but your work is more that of a high grade artisan than a tradesman.

Thanks again for the compliments guys, I appreciate the kind words...

A little more information on the barrel, since I have asked about it several times.

It is a Bartlein barrel, stainless steel, 5R rifling, the breech end is 1.250" for 5 inches, then it tapers down to 1.00" at the muzzle at 32". The barrel will be cut to 30" and I'll add one of my muzzle brakes, making the overall length 31 1/2"...

Customer requested that the muzzle brake be left oversize, and I just finished making a 1 1/4" diameter brake that will be threaded onto the barrel after I cut and crown it...

And the bi-pod, that is mine and does NOT go with the rifle...

If everything goes according to plan, I'll have more pictures first of next week...

This is looking absolutely brilliant mate. The work on the Encore barrels...and...dang...all of it, is extremely high grade and flawless. I owned a TC Contender 10” BBL in 30.30 Win some years ago and loved it tremendously. I seriously considered buying a carbine barrel and stock for it, but it was cost prohibitive at the time. I damn near cried when I handed it in to the Police. One day I might be able to find the money to buy a TC single shot rifle.

I like the look of your .300 Jnr...an interesting calibre. How does it compare to the .308 and 30.06 rounds?

Thank you Vince!!!

The 300 Jr. betters the 308 and 30-06 by a good 300 fps...

With bullets up to 180 grains, it matches or beats standard factory loadings for the 300 Win. Mag...

You got me thinking now...

I make hand dies for the 300 Jr., that I cut with the same reamer that I use to cut the chamber. The size die uses interchangeable neck bushings...

For bullet seating, the customer has the choice of using a Hornady .30 caliber universal bullet seater or a hand die that is cut with the same reamer, then have a micrometer bullet seater...

If you are interested in me building you a rifle chambered in 300 Jr, send me your address and I will send you a fireformed case...
