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
