Carbonman........

You wouldn't by chance have recieved a 7mm barrel from Mike Rock this week have you?

7mmrhb was told it was shipping out 9 days ago. Hope the UPS guys haven't run for the border with some high grade steel.

Re: Carbonman........

GG,
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.
Mike

Re: Carbonman........

I've got 9 more 7mm projects in the works here waiting on blanks. I'm trying to be patient too. There were 12, however, I went with 2 Lawton blanks and a Kreiger for those that weren't locked on the 5R profile. I'm personally unwilling to own anything but the 5R Rock.

Re: Carbonman........

Carbonman, I'm set on the 5R from Rock so i'll gut it out with the other eight! I'm guessing I'm next in line? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

You are next on the list! The Ti brake is already waiting for the rest of the parts.

I'll keep you advised.
