1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Is this some wildcat cartridge or simply a standard 6mm Remington chambered in a Bullberry barrel?

    A simple search would show this to be basically a 30-30 necked down to 6mm (.243). It is a very efficient cartridge well suited to the Contender.

    A 6mm Remington is too much for a standard Contender.

    I have a 14" Contender barrel in 7-30 Waters, a 30-30 case necked down to 7mm (.284"). It's not objectionable to shoot but I would want anything much larger.

    Does a standard TC forearm fit it or do you need a Bullberry forearm, is the forearm included? Mik

    Forgot to show the Bullberry forearm hanger bar that is included. I have a custom forearm which is made to work with the Bullberry hanger bar. I do not have a standard forearm.

    According to the Bullberry website: "All forearms mount on our exclusive hanger bar. The hanger bar is made of 5/16" square steel and mounts to the dovetail inserts on the underside of our barrels in normal Super 14 spacing. Our forearms mount only to this bar. This creates, in effect, a forearm free-floating from the barrel, alleviating external stresses. Forearms are custom made 7 to 12 inches long, to your choice. If you have a factory barrel without a hanger bar these may be ordered separately for the Contender and G2 in order to fit T/C and other after-market barrels to our custom woodwork. The standard bar used on all our barrels fits the T/C Super 12 and 14" pistols, sold for $10 each. The long hanger bar is built for T/C Carbine barrels and sells for $12, attachment screws included."

    There is NO forearm included with this barrel.

    EDIT: I just checked the hole pattern and it matches that of a 14" barrel forearm, so no hanger bar is needed, but they do have a benefit.
