    What the?

    How did you do that. It looks like you put a barrel inside the shotgun barrel. See we need a NEF catigory under Manufactors

    actually the only original part of the barrel is the chamber which is bored out and a new barrel sweated in I do it all the time

    Very nice. I still have my first 12 gauge. It isnt the handi rifle, but I was wondering if I could order a rifle barrel for it, say 22-250...know anything about that?

    Robert they will not barrel up a shotgun action for you but I friend of mine who did mine might be willing too I' would have to talk with him though as our biggest problem is with rimless cartridges and getting them to eject thats why we decided on a 307 versus the 308 on one project

    Robert. I'v been told by several experts and NEF/H&R that the shotgun[SB1] reciver is not strong enough for rifle cal, barrels. If you have an SB2 Handy-Rifle reciver you can put anything on it but rimfire.

    basically the original extractor is used -- my buddy and I have not tried anything very small yet we have only done .307WCF, .32-40WCF,45-70,.357 Max,.33WCF. We are currently looking at some of the other large cals and we already have several varmint rounds already.

    re-work single shot shotguns?

    Which varmint calibers have you worked with or planning on?
    .22-30-30 6mm-30-30 25-35? might be interesting. What kind of chamber pressure range do you have to work with?

    Once at a gun lshow some showed me a wildcat .22 formed from a .357 max case i thought he said he ran it thru a .222 die but on checking i though the bodly demesnions weren't right

    we haven't discussed these yet as we are still working on a few other projects I am trying to find a $20 deal on a 12ga barrel that nobody wants because I am thinking about a 50-110 conversion but that will be after we get done with his 416 Rigby on the enfioeld and several others on the mauser actions. I will chat with him tonight about it though and see what he says
