Re: Picking a gunsmith

I agree on Dan Dowling also K-P builts some fine rifles. You will see his barrels on alot of the 1000 yd rifles. Ken did two 6/284 for me when they 1st started using them about 12 yrs ago as well as afew others. Ken is located in Raton, NM. Dan is also starting to do some 1000 yd rifles now and I think he has his own cartridge a 6DL. He not only builds benchrest rifles he can shoot them also. I've got a 6ppc,6rem,222 and a 17rem that Dan built. Well good luck!

Re: Picking a gunsmith

From past experience I believe I would only use gunsmiths that are competitive riflemen in long range shooting sports. Just my opinion, but there are many reasons why.

Re: Picking a gunsmith

I ONLY use gunsmiths who specialize in long range competition rifles and most compete themselves. There is a big difference between them and the "local" gunsmith who does mainly repairs and occasionally a rebarrel job.
