Your math is good but you didn't mention that once you have the tools you can use them on more than one gun or at the range on multiple guns or loan them to friends and thety rareky wear out.
Randall found my headspace was out of tolerance from the factory.... by people that assemble them day in day out for a living...
And yet you shot the gun for four years with it all messed up and no complaints if I am reading this correctly?
And I should trust a sized case and a click to be dead nuts?
If its been working for years now and was out of spec that entire time as you posted earlier YES!
I'm afraid I'd have to pass. It make work fine for you. But I'll pass.
I am curious what a third party would measure on your rifle though.
I am curious as well.
I work over my own triggers, do my own action and scope base bedding, heck, you should see what I did to that factory tupperware stock.... woodblocks, bondo and 4+ layers of fiberglass... Worked over my 1911 myself too.
You work over your own triggers but with the proper tools you wouldn't put a barrel on a Savage
In this case, I had Randall install the muzzle brake. When I rebarrel, He will move the brake over to my new barrel, as well as headspace it.
Costs less than the tools including go/no go and shipping. I wont need to mess with it for nearly a decade. I'd misplace those tools in ten years.
True if everyone switched barrels every ten years but what about guys who shoot a lot?
