JK622, how long was the turnaround time, from when JES received it until you got it back?
JES rebores are my favorite rifles, I know you are going to enjoy this one. I have two in the 38-55/375 but I have a Glendfield (Trail Rider) that I think would be great wearing the JES 38-55/375 name. His work and turn around time is top of the line.
I have done so much, with so little, for so long, I can do anything with nothing.
Turnaround time on mine was just under 3 weeks but travel time from Texas to Oregon was a week each way. My other 2 were about 2 weeks each. M700, of course you know you could buy another Marlin/ Glenfield 30-30 for about $300 or less and send it to Jesse- just tryin' to help! I plan on gettin' to the range tomorrow with the first few loads. Will report...
Made it to the range today with the Glenfield/JES rebore. I shot six 3-shot groups at 100yds. with a 3-9 scope. I used Starline 375 Win. brass, Winchester LR primers, Sierra 200gr. JFP bullets, and increasing charges of H-4198. Most groups were 2-2.5" but 1 was 1.5". According to the manual that one should be about 2400fps and should be a good hog load. I'll eventually try some more bullet/powder combinations and I think group sizes will shrink with more bullets down the barrel. Jesse does good work!
Now what-cha need is to send JES an ugly or bad bore 1895 and get a 50 Alaskan back !
Mike in Peru God Bless you.
I'm too old and wore out to shoot anything that starts with a 5!
Im looking for the right gun to have rebored.
