    I'm in the same boat. Picked up a set of Redding bushing dies in 284 and a box full of Norma 284 brass. Too cheap to pass up. Now I find myself looking for parts to build a 284 Winchester. Have the dies and brass now I need the rifle. It is a vicious cycle. I wonder if there might be some sort of 12 step program for this malady.

    Mike..... I though you were getting a TL3? Why not just get a vice and do it up nice without that thing???

    Barrel will be here next week, trigger soon, action 10 weeks, McMillan 5-6 months. That's all the info I'm giving. Suspense! Stay tuned. Can I cut eye holes in my bag?

    Clancys post has me thinking. How to torque that nut with a headspace gauge installed. What do you think of this.

    The torque will not be the correct number- not that it really matters as long as its tight.

    Yes I meant shouldered. You already have a barrel vice. Several very good smiths will make you a shouldered barrel.

    I don’t know how this barrel nut thing ever became a “thing...”

    I’m a 100% with Clancy, you’re building maybe a once in a lifetime custom, not rebarreling a Savage.

    I’ve enjoyed reading about your new build. I wasn’t trying to be critical, just not a fan of the barrel nut. The bad thing about customs is , their like Lays potato chips. You can’t just have one!
