Re: waiting on new barrels.

been almost 2 months here, should be pretty soon now. Sent the rifle UPS to the smith, since installation was part of the cost, not bad considering it was about the same as getting the barrel factory direct, have a stock coming from him too, so to save on shipping I'm having him put the stock on and send the whole thing to me in one package

In smith time 8 to 10 weeks means 10-12. so 2 to 3 weeks means 3 to4 weeks. I my mind perfection takes a little longer. when I get the barrel thats when the fun begins. the bedding. buying a new scope to match the 300rum 30" sticks capablity. followed by load testing and hunting season next year.
