Default 45 acp

Dinny turned me on to Classic Barrel & Gun Works in Arizona. I was looking for someone who would do straight walled rimless cartridge rebore.
I sent a 20 223 superlight Barrel and had it rebored to 45acp. I took 7 months to get it back. But in his defense he had had some major health issues during that time.
Using Blazzer brass 230gr looks like Im getting about 2 at 50 yards. I knew it wasnt going to be the most accurate gun and I can live with that.
Some reloading should tighten the groups up some.
Next one I send him will be for 30 carbine rebore.

I would love to have the .30 carbine barrel done . Then at some other time one done in .327 that way I can use pretty much the whole .32 family of cartridges .
On a side note I hope you guy's are all doing ok during this crisis and all stay well

45 would be fun but 30 carbine makes more sense in a rifle to me. My question is that super light is a narrow barrel how much wall thickness was left after it was bored out to 45cal?

I like this. The .223 superlight is a nice size handi. The low recoil pistol caliber rifles are good fun. Post a photo of the rifle if you don't mind. Also what was the cost?

Interesting way of filling this niche. I did the single shot shotgun with "Chazel" .45 ACP barrel insert. It is really fun and comes alive with 45 Super loads. One thing I did that may interest you is to have the throat opened up for longer bullets.

That's one big bore for a skinny barrel !

I bet she's fun to shoot.
