I am pretty sure the gunsmith's concerns are for his reamer, for when he has to go into that nitrited
throat to "freshen" it. The Germans have been doing this on my Blasers for a long time and gunsmiths that know how to AI them would know the tricks. I can see where it might take an expensive reamer out of tolerance.
I want to get your response on Thomas Haugland's YouTube blog on the 6.5s...his Blaser R93 barrels are 6.5x55 & 6.5x284. I wanted to do this on your thread so the others could have an opportunity to check these YouTubes out as well. If you prefer I not, PM me and I will hold off. I'm new to blogging and don't want to violate protocol.
