  • need a crown redone

    No idea how I managed this but I'm sure it took skill...

    Damaged the bore at the crown. Damage put a bur inside the bore deep enough that the normal tricks won't correct my screw up.

    Option 1 is: Anyone have one of the manual reface/crown kits with a .338 pilot they'd rent, sell, loan?

    Option 2: looking for a smith to do the work. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

        Thanks. If I had the funds, I'd just by the kit & do it myself.. as it is, guess will see when I can get it done.

          ALASKA is a "HARD COUNTRY for OLDMEN". (But if you live it wide'ass open, balls'to the wall, the pedal floored, full throttle, it is a delightful place, to finally just sit-back and savor those memories while sipping Tequila).

            I was hoping to get a .17HMR cleaned up, local guy wanted as much as I could buy the tool to do it myself for, price the tool before paying someone to do it IF your mechanically inclined...

              Where did you find the tools for that price? I've looked, and all I can find is in the $250+ range.

                Brownells had them at the time, a couple years ago I think.

                  It should be done in a lathe, the tool will work but not nearly as well (chatter) as a lathe. I charge $50 for a simple re-crown done in a lathe even with shipping (barreled action is like $20 postage) to me I'd be cheaper than the tool and proper bushings . . . even the little rimfire tool for 17HMR.

                      If its not too bad you can just lap it with a brass cap nut in a drill with valve lapping compound or even toothpaste.
