I'm sorry but I don't. However, I remember reading many happy customers and repeat customers.

Use the custom search on the top right hand corner.

Good luck!

That right there pissed me off. Screw McWhorter if they think they're above working on guns that already exist. My money's green like everyone else's...

Sorry, just figured yall might want to know that tidbit he told me yesterday on the phone.
Do you remember who you talked to over there by chance?

No, it sounded like an older fellow. He seemed not too ready to help with questions, and wouldn't give me a price on rebarreling my rifle, because they "don't really do that anymore, and only have time for the new rifles they build".

All the happy reviews I have read, I would have thought they would have been friendlier, and other people talking about how they rebarreled their rifles.

Whatever, I have a local gunsmith, who is phenomenal, but I have been interested in the 6.5 Wby for a while, but they weren't interested in helping me or taking my money.

I was shocked, because of how many good reviewe I had read how they were all friendly and helpful.

The 7mm 180 Hybrids have a .674 BC, just FYI.
that's cool, i'm as big a 7mm fan as anybody. and my 7x300 loves the 180s but I like them coming out of the larger case for the edge in velocity.

I too am looking to build a 270 weatherby but i'm wanting to do an improved version.

Ah, you want a .270 Ackley Magnum. That would be a whitetail hammer with those big 165 Matrix bullets. Anytime you improve one of the Weatherby cases with a 40* shoulder you get a great caliber. My .300 Ackley Mag is basically an improved .300 Wby with blown-out walls and a 40* shoulder.
