Carolina Custom Rifle's or McWhorter Custom Rifle's

i had posted earlier that a friend of mine is gonna get mcwhorter to build him a custom rifle in 7mm Dakota. Well he has changed his mine and went to a different cal. Well i've jumped on the dakota band wagon and want one. of the 2 above mention fine gun makers which would be better? anythoughts.. oh yea for those that help me decide on a bullet for my .30-378wtby thank ya'll again.. as of right now i'm shooting the 190gr. berger hunting vld..WOW WAT SOME DAMAGE... Please shoot for neck with the bullets if ur a meat hunter like me... but the reason i'm wanting the 7mm dakota its right in between the 7mm wtby and 7mm stw. Casing is short enuff i think to load the bergers or others out to the lands.. thank ya'll for the in puts

Why not pick one of the gunsmiths here? I think it would be much more personal and you have in the area or 2k plus happy customers on this site I would imagine. Plus all of our guys are hunters and shooters. These guys are some of the top builders in the industry quite and humble, I have worked with most of them and they are all masters of making your dream reality.

I wouldn't go with any unless they actually shoot the guns they sell, and show you the results before sale.
Like these folks: Accurate Custom Hunting Rifles by Quarter Minute Magnums

No, I don't work for them. I don't have any of their guns.
But IMO, their business model represents a huge advancement in gun building.
They take all risk off customers, and show you what you're actually buying.
AWESOME

I like ICANHITHIMMAN's advice on using/supporting those here and agree:
"These guys are some of the top builders in the industry"

I can attest for SSG (Nate) quality, accuracy, and detail. Plus Nate is well tooled that makes some very innovative gunsmithing components and does a fair amount of work for other smith's.
The last barrel Nate chambered for me I have now shot 6-times at IBS-1000yd matches that averaged 7.6" (10-shot groups).

Good Luck,
Donovan Moran
