Re: Are there any good Gunsmiths that aren't booked up?

I do like the ideal of seeing my impact. I guess now that you mention it even with my 308 sometimes I lose sight of the target upon recoil. The 7mm will have more recoil than it so the break is looking like a good investment.

Look up Phoenix custom rifles. I believe full builds are only a month out. Simple action true and rebarrel might be more like 2-3 weeks and runs about $500.
Picked my XLR/TAC338 build up from PCR this morning. With work like this don't expect their waiting list to get any shorter...
Stiller TAC338 action
Jewell trigger
Bartlein 9.5 twist stainless, chambered in 338LM
APA FB brake
XLR HD tactical chassis
My own bolt knob

All gunsmithing and cerakote work done by PCR. There's no less than 7 different colors in this full digi camo job:

Good gunsmiths are very busy these days. Call Kevin Cram, owner of Montour County Rifles, an advertiser on this site. He will do a good job for you.

That's a sweet looking rig BodyWerks. If it shoots as good as it looks you should be good to go. Mine will be a little simpler, similar to the M40.
