Have many of you swapped barrels around? I want to put a 6.5x57 AI on a long action. Thanks, IJ

Put a 24" 243 tube on a XL7 yesterday. It worked slick and shot sub MOA for the first 2 shots in every group. Need to do some bedding or new stock. It's a factory contour, long and skinny. IJ

I couldn't find any 1/4x32 bolts to make stock bolt so I got 1/4 nylon bolts and let the action cut the threads. Cut the heads off and bedded the action and free floated the barrel. She will put 3 in 1/2" now, I got something to work on now. I sure there's cloverleaf groups in the future. Haven't started loading 95g VLD yet, that is going to be my deer load. Thanks everyone for your input. IJ
