    A few pics of the blank. its 20.5" long saw cut on the muzzel end way out of center and has a profile in it and forging marks. It was $45 aprox from Numrich. Wish I had just bought a turned blank

    Do you have a 4-jaw chuck? If so, and if you can pass it through the spindle, then it should be short work, since you could actually center it.

    I Have a 4 jaw an only a 4 jaw but it wont pass through the spindle on my 9" south bend. I have a 12" clausing but it is out of service for the foreseable future. the steady rest is an issue also as the out of service one is the only one that I have a rest for.
    Maybe I should be fixing my equipment instead of building guns for the last 4 years. LOL
    I might have to fix the clausing 12" before getting serious about this build. or find a differant barrel. this blank was purchased for my 444 rimless marlin build originaly but I was getting pretty excited about the 44?? that I decided to go with it plus it will use a standard reciver were the other will need a 308 type reciver.

    That's funny, I feel like I'm in the same boat! I need to buy a 4-jaw and just don't have the time to get around to it. The 3-jaw that came with my anemic little mini lathe just sucks.

    went to a gun show yesterday and found a steel mag marked 223 10 round it is longer than a Bulgy plastic mag so it is possably a 15 round. it had a 5 round follower in it. it wont fit in my 223 varmit build that is fitted for bulgy and pro mags. Im not sure what it is . BUT it will hold a 444?? pretty well and it is steel so I can weld on it.

    I havent given up on this project. I have a 44 mag barrel coming for my H&R handi rifle I plan to ream it to 44????WTF and use it for load development it is a strong action incase I get the loads wrong and a cheap way to get another gun+ it will be nice to have once I get the AK project done, things are being stalled due to lack of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. I was hoping to have it done by november for deer season not sure Im going to make it.

    Cool! Just getting into the Handi thing and picked up a 30.06 barrel. Now I'll have to be on the lookout for a 44mag. Keep us posted on how it goes.

    There fun n cheap to play with im going to rechamber a 223 into a 22-243 middlestead. this will be a 1-9 twist varmit slayer shoots 50 grainers at 4000 FPS APROX, barrel life will be limited but for 150 dollars its worth a try. the graybeard sight has a lot of info on these.
