Ferrell hogs are becoming a real problem in this area. A short fast handling gun with moderate power is needed. My choice is a little Marlin Model 62 lever action 256 Win. with a shortened barrel. The barrel to Action interface is a cylindrical pinned affair. To improve the accuracy I chose to make a bedding block.
This is epoxied onto the barrel and subsequently epoxied into the stock as well. The integral scope base free floats over the action, And the action floats in the stock. This illustrates the concept.
This gun is roughly a 1” at 50 yards type accuracy. With the 25 cal. 60 gr. Hornady flat nose, it will push 2700fps even with the shortened barrel. This is adequate for the intended purpose. I failed to get any pictures when I had it together and shooting. My next design iteration is going to be a Vee block glued into the stock and mated to a shortened version of this block glued to the barrel. This will provide normal type disassembly. This is a substantial departure from my main interest in long-range prairie dog guns and it has been fun.
