The cheater bar moved the barrel in the vise.

Anyone have any other ideas?

If you have access to some stainless steel shims or shims made from a tin can... try that. Place the shims on both the barrel and receiver.

I use rosin for all barrel removal and installation. Once I started using rosin I have never had a barrel slip in the vise. Brownells sells the rosin. Bid container and I one use a very small amount. This should last several life times.

I'm cool with ideas to secure the barrel. . . I'll order some rosin today. I will say, though. My bushings are aluminum and relatively new. I've been able to tighten my vise enough to make the barrel impossible to move with a substantial chunk of my body weight and an 18 inch handle. I'm actually annoyed with myself because I marred them when I twisted the barrel. Turns out a couple of tiny dabs of weld tore them up. Very frustrating.

When I do a relief cut, just use a hacksaw, cut 1/8" from front edge of receiver, go maybe 1/4" deep. Makes the shoulder no longer snug against receiver. On some 1903s I have also had to support chamber area of barrel on block of wood, then beat on opposite side of chamber area as close as dare with 3lb mallet. Serves to shake threads loose. A remote possibility is that you have one of the ones they actually bored about a 1/2" hole in bottom of receiver and barrel, inserted a metal dowel. Have seen 1 Garand done that way.
