All I know is that I am getting parts together for one of these builds. George=GA Precession builds over 1700 custom guns a year, and has done over 20 of the 6.5 saum guns now. What other gunsmith has that kind of experience. He just cant put his name on something without lots of testing. He also has the equipment to test chamber pressure not just run it off quickload. Once I get my gun built I will post my results as well. I would say its proven.
Skyking, anyone who has known me in this forum knows I am someone who is almost always ready for something new. When new powder and bullets come out, I am usually one of the first to experiment with them. I have also tried a couple of experimental barrel treatments which turned out to be not quite what was promoted or hoped for. I have found that most of the hype of new stuff is hype. Sometimes there is a little increased beneifit and sometimes like in the case of RL17, it actually exceeds what was projected. I have also been very interested in the nitriding treatments and will be sending 3 rifles in very soon. IMO, that's the way to go for extended barrel life. Higher velocities, easy cleaning, corrsion resistance, smooth actions.
Good luck with your build and keep us posted on progress. I'll do the same with my nitrided 6.5 WSM
BTW, are you an old SAC guy? That Skyking call sign brings back memories for SAC guys.
