My gunsmith who admittedly doesnt do much work on customs asked me how I wanted it chambered. I didn't know what to tell him. That is what my question is to any experts that are "in the know" about this cartridge. Any and all feedback will be greatly appreciated...
I am with 7stw on this one and he said all that needs to be said. I with the others on the smith also, you are spending a lot of money and be sure you don't be the Ginny pig for a novice when it comes to this custom build. I don't mean to "bad mouth" someone I don't know, but it would be a pricey mistake you come out on the short end of the stick. Just be sure that he knows what he is doing and don't go into it guessing, I was a novice one time also and the only way to get better is to work and get the experience and don't quit until you've got it. I am no master gunsmith by a Long shot, but I've been around a good one long enough to know what to look for. Farming, machanicing, and taxidermy, now I can square you away on those.
