Have a ultra9 30 5/8x24 direct thread at the shop. getting a plan now so I can shoot away when the day comes I get to take her home.
I dropped off a rifle today to get threaded and we measure the barrel od and it comes out at .650. It's a 6.5 and specs from tba says I'm limited to 1/2x28. I called tba and they said do 1/2x28 but any bigger of a caliber your screwed out of that barrel profile. I'd need .662 for 9/16x24. Is 1/2x28 ok for a creedmoor?
So it's looking like for now on I'm going to need to take calipers with me when I'm gun shopping. That or convert to brake attach. Which reminds me are there any options for my kimber Montana(that's actually at kimber) in 280ai. Apparently new barrels come threaded but I have no idea of pitch. The contour is super skinny. If I can squeeze out 9/16 threads it would be great in the future.
