Kirby, very nice. I may just have to have my custom pistol from you built in the 6.5 WSM instead of the 7mm WSM. Ken

Nice guns.

Question? How long does it take to receive an ABS barrel from the time of order until the time of receipt?

Long450,

The 6.5mm WSM is a great chambering for medium to big game in both rifle and handgun. Its best as a big game chambering where shooting volume will be somewhat limited moreso then a target, comp or varmint chambering. This is simply because of barrel life.

The 7mm WSM is another great choice for an XP. The larger bore will allow more velocity with same bullet weights or same velocity with slightly heavier bullet weights.

Ballistically, would be hard to tell one from another but I would think that with the 180 gr VLD in the 7mm, it would have a slight edge in ballistic performance at longer ranges. Still, the heavier bullet produces more recoil which is really of no concern with the muzzle brakes we use on these handcannons so do not let that stop you.

Simply put, if you want a bit more barrel life and perhaps a bit more terminal performance on larger game, the 7mm WSM would be a better choice but its suprising how impressive the 6.5mm version is.

Re: Couple new rigs from APS....

Phorwath,

To be honest, I can not remember how long it took. I believe it was around a year. This project has taken a LONG time to get done. There was one set back after another with componants, I think we are going on 20 months now. My customer has shown exceptional patients when in many cases I would have expected most to bail. He did not and I greatly appreciate that. In the end, I believe he will be very happy with this precision rifle but its been a long hard road for both of us but we hung in there. Now we are seeing the results!!!

Personally, I do not recommend ABS barrels. They generally shoot extremely well. I have only had a couple that had accuracy issues. The problem is getting one in shop and cost. Personally, I do not feel they are worth the huge increase in price compared to an all steel barrel.

I will not refuse to work with an ABS barrel simply because I know they shoot, I just tell my customers if they want one, they need to call ABS and order the barrel as I just do not have the time to deal with them......
