    Default Re: 6.5 Creedmoor vs 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser Ammo Guide ballistics

    Good members, I fit an old rifle barrel to the action, a smaller diameter and thinner than the heavy sportster profile I bought .This enable me to commence with in-letting yesterday. Some photos, I will be working this coming week on the in-letting and completion of the stock..the grain runs straight through the grip..it has a nice texture and grain..will finish up nicely..good piece of Wall Nut stock...I will shape this rifle stock to a sleek, thin classic design..a light small/medium hunting rifle to enjoy ...

    pblaauw, no, I am bias towards a classic rifle build.will keep to the standard bluing and True oil finish on the stock.I always like the classic lines, maybe in the near future I will try my hand at a long distance build on a aluminum chassis system..I do have access to a milling machine as well as a lathe and surface grinder at the shop...but for now the 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser, and the 8x68S will both be the classic route...

    Gert, I meant purely as protection against the elements... Or you just going to have it blued again?

    pblaauw, yes you are correct, I will just blue it, I was thinking of peacock bluing the rear sights to give it a nice compliment, will use buffalo grip cap , Zebra wood( black ivory ) for the fore tip...the recoil lugs will be counter sink to inlay mosaic pins ..the same I am using for my knife handles...and a red packmyer recoil pad I love the old red type recoil pad..will do exactly the same with the 8x68S to make them a pair...
