Excellent work and excellent results. Machining is quite the art/skill.

When we bought that lathe it did need some work. It definitely had been used a lot, and used hard. But we got it so cheap (and with a lot of tooling), it was worth it. Lots of people don't have room for a machine that size so sometimes you can get a deal. We stripped it down and cleaned everything up good, replaced a few worn out parts here and there, and it runs great now. It has a few little things a guy needs to know about to get the accuracy out of it but no biggie.

I am surprised that you can get that much accuracy out of that large of a lathe. I always think of the big heavy lathes as work horses that have been worked hard and “put away wet”!

As far as 527’s go, I love them!

My two are a 12 twist American in 223 and an American in .204 Ruger

My drag around rifle in .223 is the Ruger American Compact. I am a farmer and that Compact is my truck and tractor rifle.

Here is another group from some of those "leftover" loads from the old barrel. I was verifying my 200 yard zero yesterday. Had just a touch of wind from 9 o'clock drifting it to the right. But .538" at 200 is an absolute screamer group for me. That is dang close to 1/4 MOA.
