Gunsmiths doing the 300 Tomahawk conversion

I was hoping to get my Sendero SF converted and rebarreled to the either the 300 Tomahawk or the 338 version over the winter. Does anyone know of a gunsmith here in Canada that has the reamers to do this? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Digger49r,

I've been in your shoes too however I know no one has a reamer for 300 or 338 Tomahawk reamer in SouthWestern Ontario so you better off calling Ray in PA. I'd contact him when I have the budget to build the long range rifle.
First of all, get the paperwork from ATF (US) from the internet or call them and follow all instructions then you should be alright to export your rifle to the states. (more likely to take 3 months to process for approval from the ATF).

Is the rifle a 300 Ultra right now?

Digger

If your going to stay with the standard length barrel that is on your present rifle, you may want to just leave the rifle a 300 RUM (if it is a 300 RUM) and shoot it till the barrel goes sour and then rechamber.
If your staying at the 26" length, the Tomahawk won't give you "that" much more punch but, a little bit.

If your wanting to go to a 338 and rebarrel at a later time, the 338 RUM is still a good choice for the rifle you want to lug around.

I have found that the Tomahawks will give "up to" 5 and 6 grains of additional powder capacity and is worth it for the extreme range shooter with longer barrels.

Because of the hassel, possibly a gunsmith in Canada can do the standard RUM of maybe they/you can buy a Tomahawk reamer from a company in the States when your ready?

Just my 2 cents worth
