They can't seem to find Mike and are long past due

Mine is not long past due but I'm w/you on the can't find Mike thing. I've called and left 2 messages and emailed him once over the last two weeks. Probably just busy. At least I hope [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]!!
I wasn't suggesting you were pointing fingers just speaking in generalities . Another example of my muddy typing [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
Add me to that list. I've also left two messages in the last two weeks without a response. I am not concerned with the wait as I am about the blank itself. Wanted to know if we're still going with the Rock or one of the other suppliers he mentioned. I would have had my barrel already but Mike say's he rejected my Rock blank when it arrived; about 1 in a 100 according to him do not meet his standards. We discussed the possibilty of another barrel maker if it was going to be a while, .277 1-8.25 twist. I wanted to reach him to tell him if it was going to take a long time for the custom twist I would change my barrel and build a .338 Edge instead if it was more readily available. Between the delay for the barrel and the delay on the custom action this project has been in the making for a loonnnnngg time.
Kirby is putting it all together. The .338 Allen Mag didn't exist when I started this and it has been so long I kinda wish I could start all over but the stock and action won't work with that round. I know I will be very happy when my .270 Allen mag is finished.
ABS 30 in. carbon barrel 1-8.25 twist to handle the 169.5 or the 195 gr. Wildcat bullets, Borden Alpine action, Accuracy International stock, Defensive Edge brake, IOR 6x24 scope, Seekins 20 moa base.
