Jordan,

If you do not mind me asking or can PM me, what did the truing work cost and consist of? And what was the cost of Lorenzo chambering and threading the tube for a brake? Also, what was the turn around?

Thanks,

Brandon

Re: hit a mile

You guys are getting me wanting again. I would have to sell rifles for enough money to make my .338wm sing at 1500-2000 yds.? It's a Browning Stalker w/Boss and Synthetic. I had ordered stainless and put on lay-a-way, when paid last and picked up they gave me blue. That's been years now but rifle still has factory oil & never been shot. How much would it cost to make it shoot? I may never use my Alpine Silverado again either sense I can't pull it anymore :-(

Thank you guys for all I have learned so far and intend to as time goes on. Been in/out of hospital many times the last couple months so forgive my late paying to those waiting. PM me if I still owe for stuff as I am very forgetfull on these meds. Still need those 338 bullets in ammo can if avaialable? Sorry again, JASTECH

Re: hit a mile

Wow that's impressive. I am building a 338 378wby on a savage 110 with a 34 in LIlja barrel. Hope to be shooting within 3 months . I am new here, but have been reading lrh for a while. Learning a lot. Hope to eventually get out that far!

That's way to much cartridge and barrel for a savage 110.
You might want to look into a custom action for that build
and talk to a smith.
