Correcting Bolt Lug Engagement and Excess Headspace with Steve Acker (DVD)
Steve demonstrates how a gunsmith can rework the Remington 700 bolt action rifle for more accuracy, using basic tooling and setups on the lathe and workbench.
The work is done on a factory varmint rifle not as accurate as it should be, and which has long headspace.
He improves bolt contact and the front receiver ring contact.
