Chambering a new barrel for the wife’s rifle (PT 2). 6.5 Creedmoor

Today we are chambering the new Preferred barrel for the wife’s rifle. We are using a PTG floating reamer set up. This will be chambered in a 6.5 Creedmoor. We really take our time here, plunging in only .050 at a time then as we get closer to the final depth we plunge much less. We really focus on sneaking up on the final reaming depth of the chamber. This allows us to really pay attention and hit the numbers right on the first time and avoid machining mistakes.
This has been a very fun project so far and I’m really looking forward to getting this done so we can get to the range soon and start the load development and testing.
