Let us know what came of the problem, that was nearly 4 years ago.
he sent the barrel back in and the company chambered it i forgot what he told me for sure but i know that they used a differant setup than the normal lathe setup

im not oldfamily but i did know the fellow that chambered the barrel (died about a year ago)he was a machinist and gunsmith for 45-50 years and built several hundred rifles around here and was a very smart man i remember him saying he would never buy another barrel from this company also he was very carefull and Meticulous i believe he told me that was the only time he ever broke a reamer

i would almost bet money they used a solid carbide chambering reamer to do that barrel if it was that hard.

Why not offer the name of the barrel maker? Some barrels are just harder then others and it may help some avoid a similar problem. I know its not your barrel but just curious what barrel it was. Sounds like a Lother Walters to me or a Black Star.

THanks for the update.

That is odd for a shilen, espeically if stainless but as many barrels as they put out a year, its unrealistic to think that a barrel with an issue could not get out the shop door.
