Well I figured I post a progress report!
After cleaning up my shop, I decided it was time to finish my build
I did use the undersized drill and reamed the barrel hole to about .001" under the measured size of my Green Mountain Bull barrel then heated the receiver to about 180 to 200 deg.
The barrel slipped right in and I had time to line up the V-block and snug up the V-block as it cooled. it ended up working really well. as for drilling the Barrell hole I didn't use the jig!
I used the milling dimple left on the receiver as the mark to center punch a point for the drill to follow, then reamed it to size.
As others have said my Hogue stock was to tight, had to dremel to size in front of the magazine.
