Re: Building a rifle
It would be an absolute shame to to put a pre-threaded & chambered barrel on a custom action. Custom/semi-custom actions deserve custom threaded/chambered/crowned barrels. A pre-T,C,& C barrel is made to fit every action of the particular model it is made for. I don't believe they are ever as accurate as a true custom. But, if that's what you want to do,, I don't usually give this advice,, buy a Savage. Then, you're not really "building" a rifle, you're just assembling one. JMO
