While I searched high and low for a new striker spring for my S&W 1500 rifle, I found firing pins made for 243Win rifle.
Do any of you know what the difference might be between a standard firing pin and a F/P for other calibers? Thanks
I measured the power of the stock spring to be about 15 pounds, below optimum for best accuracy 20-23). So, I made mods to the bolt shroud and firing pin to accomodate a stronger spring, which is now about 21 pounds.
My rifle is 250 Savage Improved in a wood, sporter stock which is not conduce to bench testing.
Watching the wind and wind flag closely is the new frontier for me.
