A 6.5x55 Match Rifle
The rifle was installed in the old stock. The new bolt handle required some inletting.
A piece of carbon paper is placed under the bolt handle and it is closed. When it presses against the carbon paper a small mark is made at the place where the handle hits the wood.
This small mark (at the pencil point) is removed with a file or curved chisel, and the process is continued.
During the sighting-in/load development process, the scope moved forward (really, the rifle moved rearwards). Cleaning and tightening the rings was no help, so the rings and scope body were cleaned with paint thinner and a drop of "LocTite" applied to the top and bottom of each ring. The excess can be seen squeezing out, above. Note that the rings were blasted and coated, see how they match the BSA matte scope?
