Re: Questions about my first custom rifle
I would contact the guys in the SW Missouri 1k BR club just north of you. Bet you will find a couple highly recommended local smiths that might be very reasonabl. Go to BR central and click on the link for that club.
New barrel company just came out with cut rifled barrel for $250 in SS and shipping is around two weeks right now, called Brux. think link is on 6mmbr.com site for them. Initial reports seem to be very favorable and fast shipping.
Any magnum bolt face will work for what you want also. Think the PSS even comes in the RUM if I remember.
