Need some recommendations...

I have a custom rifle coming in from Remington's Custom shop in about 2 weeks and I want to have it Ackley Improved and Cryofroze as soon as I get it. I do not have a custom gunsmith in my area that I'm comfortable with, to work on this rifle...so it looks like I'm going to have to send it out somewhere. Could any of you guys recommend a good gunsmith to send it to? Thanks in advance for any input. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    The DC metro area...The WV panhandle, now, to be specific. I really want someone good, to work on it. This is the most expensive rifle that I have bought to date, so I don't mind paying to make sure it's done right. Thanks! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I can recommend Dwight Scott He can rechamber the rifle for you Dwight doesn't do the Cryofreze thing. The last barrel he did for me has shot excellent for me. I had it chambered for long range varmint hunting and since have taken up 1000 yard competition. The chambering is for a 6.5-284 Kreiger barrel on an old Hart A1 action. I shot a 3.666 inch group in Quantico and a 4.0? in Ohio and at the nationals in Quantico a 4.6? with a rifle that was made to shoot live Varmints. I have a barrel being chambered this week by Dwight another 6.5-284 for my HG and will be getting 2 LG barrels this winter. Dwight's # is 1-517-663-1750
