Hobbyists, do-it-yourselfers, and pro's: Invest in some extremely specialized education and learn some of the very best rifle evaluating and accurizing techniques!!
These instructional DVD's and books explain and show in great detail the mothods Gordy uses to accurize factory rifles and to build record-setting custom rifles!
Most of the methods taught in DVD's #1 and #2 can be done by hobbyists at home, even if you don't have a lathe or mill. A lathe and mill will obviously make things easier and neater, but you can sure get the same effects using these methods without these machines.
The first two DVD's of the "EXTREME ACCURACY SERIES" and the Grizzly Chambering DVD are in stock and ready for immediate delivery!
More DVD's coming soon
DVD's on various extreme accuracy gunsmithing and long range shooting topics by Gordy Gritters will soon be available through this website and at Gordy's Precision gunsmithing shop. These DVD's are geared for do-it-yourselfers as well as professional gunsmiths.
The new 2018 book "Chambering Rifles for Accuracy" is an extremely detailed instructional book on rifle barrel chambering
New book for 2018 -"CHAMBERING RIFLES FOR ACCURACY"
This instructional book is co-authored by Fred Zeglin and Gordy Gritters. The methods detailed in this book can be used equally well by gunsmiths working in a professional shop, and by hobbyists working from a home shop to build extremely accurate hunting or benchrest rifles.
Fred is a long-time gunsmith, gunsmithing instructor, author, and is the owner of 4-D Reamer Rentals, so he is very knowledgeable on the use and care of reamers. Fred has extensive experience building high-accuracy hunting rifles.
Gordy is also a long-time gunsmith, gunsmithing instructor, author, and has built his business around building extreme accuracy rifles for world-class benchrest and competition shooters, and for high-accuracy long range shooters and hunters.
Fred wrote the first half of the book, which covers a wealth of information on the basics of what is needed to prepare for and chamber high accuracy hunting barrels. He includes a lot of detailed information on tools needed such as reamers, micrometer reamer stops, headspace gauges, etc.
Gordy wrote the second half of the book, which goes far beyond basic chambering. Gordy covers the details of setting up a lathe for accurately chambering barrels through the headstock, various dialing-in methods commonly used, how to deal with the curvature present in every rifle bore, and how to deal with reamer chatter (which is especially prevalent in the currently popular 5R-type barrels). He then finishes the book with a very detailed step-by-step section including lots of color photographs, on the entire dialing-in/threading/fitting/chambering/crowning process used to build a benchrest-quality rifle. This includes details of how to ream custom chamber necks, and how to throat the chamber for specific bullets or for a specific purpose.

DVD#1 "Evaluating Rifles for Accuracy Problems"
In this intensive video, Gordy thoroughly explains rifle accuracy, the problems that cause poor accuracy, and shows how to completely evaluate/measure/gauge every aspect of a factory or custom rifle for accuracy problems.
He shows how to "slug" a bore to evaluate internal barrel problems, and has some terrific borescope footage that clearly shows crooked/off-center chambers, smeared lands caused by dull chamber reamers, chamber and throat "reamer chatter", throat erosion, and other accuracy robbing problems.
Gordy then goes into detail explaining some of the best procedures used to correct all the accuracy problems in the action, barrel, stock, bedding, trigger, and other components of a rifle, including the "Big Five" things that are absolutely essential to bring out the full accuracy potential in any rifle! $49.95 plus s/h
DVD#2 "Epoxy 'Sleeving'and Lapping Bolt Lugs for Accuracy"
In this video, Gordy shares a previously secret and extremely effective method of reducing bolt play in a rifle action to increase accuracy, sometimes astonishingly so!
He also goes into great detail showing a very effective method of lapping bolt lugs without wearing them at an angle like so often happens when using conventional methods.
These two techniques go hand-in-hand to correct issues that have a major impact on the accuracy of a rifle!

DVD #3 Note: the video editor we were using to produce this DVD had computer problems that corrupted most of this video footage, so we had to start over. So we are in the process of re-filming and editing this DVD - sorry for the delay!
DVD#3: "Slugging and Hand-Lapping Rifle Barrels for Accuracy"
This video shows a very good method anyone can use to easily evaluate a rifle barrel for accuracy problems using lubricated lead slugs. Gordy then goes into great detail explaining and showing exactly how to hand-lap a rifle barrel using a poured lead lap with appropriate abrasives to increase accuracy and help cure fouling problems. This method works very well with finished barrels and normally does not require rechambering. The accuracy gains using this procedure are often very impressive!
