Jim paid for the shipping both ways and had my "new" barrel fitted and returned in 2 weeks. In my book that can't be beat!
That's what you call customer service right there.

    Im thinking of doing exactly what you are talking about but in 338 lapua improved if hart has the reamer. All the machine work, barrel and the extra $180 for the spiral fluting puts it at $880+the price of the rifle. Thats a ready to shoot custom rifle for $2000. Cant beat that.

    My thoughts exactly! My only hang up is, it says on their website that they install vais brakes. Im not too interested in being covered in dust everytime I trip the trigger

    I would use a directional brake. I shot a 7 STW with a Vias brake and had dirt in my contacts every shot. I have a CSR 4 port mag muscle on my 338 Lapua and love it.
