My Winchester barrel when hand tightened went well past 6'oclock, I took my time and rolled the shoulder and it appears to hand tighten at what position, 715 or 730?

I think a rolled shoulder gives something of a "crush" effect. This allows you to tighten from a bit further out. Looks about perfect.

Looking good. I like the stock finish. Not GI, but very pretty.

I confused, the ramps look too far to the left as when I compare to mine, this looks like it will not pick up the cartridge from the magazine. Can someone explain this to me. I have a SAI standard.

Ok I think I got it that was the position at "hand tight".

I believe you are looking at a photo before the barrel was indexed.

Yes Sir, I will post a picture of the tool I used, though I am sure you will not be impressed.

Just a regular nail hammer.
