yes, the flutes in the barrel are also by me. The customer wanted a #3 contour with flutes so stainless was out of the question. I had a good discussion with one of the reps at Krieger and we both decided we would need to go with chrome molly. I did make a lead cast of the muzzle after I fluted it and pulled it through the barrel. It felt very consistant through and through so I did not add any lapping compound. I feel the rifle will indeed be a heck of a shooter and of course it has my 1/2moa guarantee. Krieger would not flute there #3 chrome molly due to their set up.
Thanks for all the kind words.
I will have to say the fella I built this rifle for is one heck of a shooter/reloader and definately picked some good components and options in this build.
This is the second rifle I built him, the first was similar only supporting a #5 contour in 6.5-06AI and he has shot several group in the 1's and 2's with a 400 yd., three shot group he could cover with a quarter.
