Seeking Custom Rifle Makers

I was wondering if anyone could help me get in contact with someone. I have searched the internet for hours and have found little of what I want. I am looking to have built a custom long range rifle suited more towards target shooting than anything else. I am looking for something based on a .300 Remington Ultra Mag, 32-34" barrel with a muzzle brake, McMillan (or equiv) stock, Jewel Trigger, etc. If anyone could help me it would be most appreciated since there is no one in my area that can do something like this. Also reccomendations on parts are welcome too. Thanks!

Re: Seeking Custom Rifle Makers

You might try the website for sst.benchrest.com they have lots of barrel makers and smiths etc. or looking over some competition results. They often have the gunsmiths name that put the rifle together.

I can think of a couple of accuracy smiths that you would probably like dealing with, and would be happy talking with.
Try Mike Bryant or Gre-tan rifles.

Re: Seeking Custom Rifle Makers

Call Chris Matthews of LongShot Rifles at 816-820-5129.

He has done several recent projects for me. The latest one I shot for the first time this afternoon. I had him re-barrel a rifle he built for me some months ago. That rifle shot very well and I just this week had him put a shorter, lighter barrel on it.

So this afternoon I first fired about ten rounds as I worked up to a safe max velocity. Then I cleaned it and shot 3 fouling rounds. After that my second variant of powder weight resulted in a 3-shot, 100 yard group of 3/8 inches. I then fired at my 500 and 700 yard targets where I got 1/3 moa vertical groups in a switching wind.

Re: Seeking Custom Rifle Makers

Go over to benchrest.com and they have a forum for 1000yd and and they could give you a whole list of gunsmith. Tooley Custom guns and Bill Shehane of D$B Supply both have web pages plus Gen-Tan rifles these guys also shoot at the 1000yd matchs. Good luck.

Re: Seeking Custom Rifle Makers

I would steer you to Tooley Custom Rifles. I had him build me a bench gun in 6PPC, with a Batt action. On par with anything I ever seen on the firing line. His 1000 yard guns are tops as well. He has a wealth of info and is has very reasonable prices. I feel we as shooters have never lived in a more exciting time, with all the talented gunsmiths to choose from. You will get every pennys worth from anyone of them. Find one who you can explain what you want, and then listen, alot! Keep us all posted, Jason
