    I will always do a shoulder over the barrel nut I can change a shoulder barrel out faster than one with a nut.I am in the process of building a backup f/tr rifle on a Tl3 right now and another barrel to play around with.

    should not have closed on a nogo gauge - sounds like the barrel turned and caused you to have excess headspace.

    My gunsmith is in the hospital with the few and looks to be out for a a week or more. I reinstalled the CBI and I had over torque when I reinstalled it. I took 10 Ftlb off the torque wrench and it is shooting great again. I will save the Bartlein for later
