Very, very nice work, and in my opinion, elegant, too!

Are all four screws into the barrel? If so, once your barrel starts heating your one-piece scope mount may pull your barrel up, down or all around.

Very nice indeed and if you are concerned about what SSShooter brought up the few I have made for myself the rail was relieved and it did not touch the barrel from the front set of screws to the back set. But in all honesty I also do not believe it was actually required?

Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

That's a very classy scope base/adapter!

Very nice job. With a single shot and the barrel in close contact with the mount, don't think heating would be a problem.
Put some thermal grease between the surfaces if you think so.

I expect that considering the caliber, 32=40,
and probable use,
the barrel will not heat up that much anyways

After a few days in my shop I have completed a breach seater for the Hepburn. Not fancy but it should do the job. Now I have to fire up the lead pot and cast some 1:20 as the new mold has arrived. Thank GOD I am retired so I have time to play with projects like this. I will keep you informed to my progress as I get the Hepburn shooting from the bench.

Can I have the extra one, for in case I ever get a Hepburn? Wink
Actually, it's nice enough to warrant a second look, thanks.

You have an excellent sense of design and mechanics combined with nice work.  I predict you will have a lot of fun and success improving your rifles and making accessories for them.  Keep us posted!

Nice Job and pretty much an exact Russ Weber Seater clone with the exception of not having the wood handle not knowing if you have ever seen one and beautiful work indeed!
