I talked with James this morning and found out that barrel went into the scrap bin after final inspection. They are having some issues with the 7mm rifling head. The hook advance on the 7mm machine is causing some cosmetic flaws in the grooves. I would gladly have put the barrel on a personal project rifle, however, Rock wouldn't let it out of the shop. Rock and James are both working on the issues as we speak. If they can't get that machine back running this week, I'm told they will move the process to another rifler.
UPS isn't responsible for this delay, just the gremlins that live and play in machine tools.
