If you want a top quality smith in Texas, I recommend Mike Bryant:
Precision Riflesmithing by Bryant Custom
I have a PacNor on my 30.06 that John Noveske built but that was before he turned his company into a military style firearm outfit. He used to work for PacNor so I got the barrel through him and I've been impressed with the rifle and the barrel, especially in terms of how well it cleaned and how clean it stays. That barrel simply doesn't appear to copper foul.
I cannot attest to the work PacNor does on truing an action. It doesn't appear to be rocket science and I would suspect that some builders perhaps are better than others but they all go buy their gauges and rely on them.
If I recall correctly from past conversations, Bartlien, Hart, Shilen, and PacNor (among others) all offer to fit the barrel on your action and they will "blueprint" it for you as well. I don't think there is anything wrong with that but I prefer a rifle builder to do all the work because that is what I'm used to.
