Greatest Hits: Indexable Rimfire Action

LINK: Bill Myers’ Indexable Rimfire Action
Does the rotational position of a rimfire barrel (relative to the action) affect accuracy? Many smart folks think it does. But how can you set the barrel at different rotational orientations to find what position works best. Bill Myers came up with a clever answer. Using a cone breech (so extractor position doesn’t matter), Bill fits a bushing on the end of the barrel, which is then clamped by the action.. This allows the barrel to be rotated without altering headspace.
