In the rebarreling and building of one of our .22 rimfires, we took an H&R Ultra in 22 magnum and cut the original factory barrel back to a total length of 3 1/2" and internally bored, reamed and threaded it. We then took a Green Mountain .920 diameter barrel and threaded and chambered it and screwed it into the short section of original factory barrel. We modified the extractor slightly and chambered the barrel for .22 Lr.with a MATCH chamber.We then cut the extractor slot, finished the barrel and crowned it after it was drilled and tapped for the pillar bedding of the forend. The barrel was also redrilled and tapped for the larger and longer 8-40 screws and the scope base was attached. The trigger had also been reworked down to a very crisp, clean and "safe" breaking 10 ounces!

After all was said and done and the gun was scoped, shooting Wolf Match Target ammo, this gun would consistantly shoot under 1/4" at 50 yards and well under 1 inch at 100 yards shooting off a bench with sand bags and a Harris bi-pod....

James B,

if you like this little rifle, then you would just love the one I did in 30-30 Ackley Improved and 22 K-Hornet...

The 30-30 Ackley Improved would put five of Hornady's 155 gr. A-MAX bullets inside a 1/2" circle at 200 yards when shot off a bench...

The 22 K-Hornet would consistantly shoot groupsof 1/4" or less at 100 yards shooting Hornady's 50 gr. V-MAX bullets...

The barrels on both guns were 1.200" in diameter and 23" in length...

These guns are relatively inexpensive to rebarrel and build off of and as long as you stay with a "rimmed" cartridge, accuracy is more than satisfactory...

Other cartridges that I chamber for are all based on the full length 307 Winchester or 444 Marlin case left full length and necked to the appropriate caliber. I carry dies for all the cartridges I chamber for with complete reloading instructions on case forming and fireforming techniques....

Tom,

most guys go through Midway and order one of their Adams and Bennett barrels that they carry and send it to me along with a factory H&R barrel to machine and fit like the one showed in the pictures. With the customer providing the barrels, I charge $150.00 for all machine work, chambering and crowning....
