Re: Kirby, I answered your post about the 338
It was at least ten years ago I ran into a guy at a gun show that was using "graphite" on his barrels, some of his finished rifles weighed less than four pounds. I honestly can't remember the name of the company, could have been something like Apollo, or Acme? I don't know if carbon and graphite are interchangable words for the same thing?
But, I have bought McMillan stocks before, and it seems like they took at least four weeks? When I asked for a stock for a Howa, I was told that they set all the oddball stuff (like Lazzeroni) off to the side until they get a bunch, and do them all at once, when they get enough to mess with. As I recall, that Howa took almost twice as long as others?
Good hunting. LB
