How-To: Building the ULTIMATE Lathe Spider For Your Gunsmithing Lathe

Originally published on our sister site Making with Metal. One of the first things I do when I get a new piece of machine shop equipment is to decide how I’ll “customize” the machine and organize all of the tooling. Machining is a very personal thing, and it’s therefore “just a part of the process” […]

TESTED: Remington 700 Long Range 300 Remington Ultra Magnum

Anyone that knows me knows that I’m drawn to extremes. So when I heard about 300 Remington Ultra Magnum (300 RUM) I was curious- what would it be like to shoot such an extreme cartridge? Fast forward a number of years and here I am with my own 300 RUM rifle! This exploration of 300 […]

224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P8: Barrel Break In, First Groups, First Loads

Breaking in the barrel for a rifle you’ve built is a truly unique and exciting experience. Will the gun blow up? Will the rifle shoot well? Will my new trigger meet my expectations? It’s like sea trials for a new ship, but with a precision instrument. As I was finishing my Remington 700 224 Valkyrie […]

224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P7: AICS Magazine Conversion

When you go “off the script” (like building a 224 Valkyrie bolt-action rifle) you can expect some challenges. One such challenge with this kind of build is getting a reliable magazine configuration setup. A lot of guys have spent a lot of hours tinkering with magazines, springs, followers, lip geometry and more with a common […]

224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P6: KRG Bravo Stock, TriggerTech Special Trigger

All of the hard work I’ve put into this 224 Valkyrie Remington 700 build is about to come together, literally! With a complete barreled action assembly, it’s time to install our trigger, and then mate the stock and barreled action together. I can hardly wait to take this rifle to the range! And by the […]

224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P5: Custom Thread Protector

A threaded muzzle is great, but if you aren’t using a muzzle brake or suppressor, you’ll need something to protect the (fragile) threads! That’s where a thread protector comes in handy. One of the best ways to make a thread protector is with a cut-down section of barrel blank. Good thing I had this “extra” […]

224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P4: Muzzle Threading and Barrel Install

Here’s my philosophy: why not have a threaded muzzle? If you want to use a muzzle brake or a suppressor, you’re all set! If you don’t use a muzzle device, you put a thread protector on, and you’re good to go. So now that we’ve completed the breech-end barrel work, let’s move on to the […]

224 Valkyrie Remington 700 Build P3: Chambering and Machining

Sometimes you have to do a lot of “prep work” to get to the “fun work”. Well, after building out our build-sheet, and preparing and aligning the barrel, we’re now to the fun part of this build! That’s right, it’s time to start machining the tenon, and cutting the chamber! Series navigation: 224 Valkyrie Remington […]
