Mike is the smith recommended to me by Greg Richards when he retired. Mike Bryant is a top rifle builder for sure.

+1 He was a pleasure to work with. Very detailed focused and always willing to discuss options with me. Highly recommend him.

So, I'm finally done with the barrel break-in. It took more rounds than expected but it's done and it's showing good potential. The last 4 break-in rounds measured .723" @ 100. I'm still getting a fair amount of copper fouling but it cleans up quickly now. I'll finish the box of sirocco II bullets but will most likely try the new LR Accubonds once they hit the stores.

I'm prepping my cases now and will be loading up a couple strings to do some ladder testing.

Each time I take the rifle out I get more impressed.
