Mike D. You have every right to be happy, you put together one heck of a Pipe for Grouper. Your Carbon wrap is a thing of beauty. I can't wait to see my 7mm ABS barrel!!!-7mmrhb

Rumor has it the issues with the rifling head for your 7mm barrel are nearly fixed. I'll call again today to see what the remaining lead time is for your blank. We could have gone with Krieger or Lawton (still can if you make that decision), however, I really am liking the performance of the 5R configuration blanks.

To put it into words: I absolutely could not be happier with the rifle. I can run a dial indicator over the web of this brass and there is no belly out. The chamber is perfect and the blueprinting is top notch. I have used lots of gunsmiths over the years and can honestly say that Kirby is the real deal. He's top notch, A+, two thumbs up, and 5 stars all the way. But that can be our little secret so that I can have more rifles built without waiting in line for everyone on LRH and their rifles!

And to Carbon man: Thanks again. This wrap is unbelievable at how fast it dissipates heat. I can fire probably one shot every 25 seconds on a 50 degree day and never get to the critical heat point! Absolutely amazing! And it obviously is stiffer than a wedding you-know-what.
Plus, it looks so dang cool! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
Yes, it could be said I'm a happy camper. Now, how long to hunting season?
