    Looking for a good smith locally. I live 30 min. south of Salt Lake City. I'm willing drive a ways for good work.

    Can't seem to find any guys that are really extreme accuracy minded.

    Thanks

    one that comes highly recommended and will impress the hell out of you is Brad Stair out of ogden # 394-0331. There is another post on here if you look back a page or two that discusses this same issue.

    I don't know how you have the posts ordered but on the second page I started a thread asking relatively the same question and there are 14 replys. It was started on 7-26-08. Hope this provides additional help

    There are a few that frequent Parley's shooting range that do amazing jobs. The guy's face that comes to mind has a german accent and prefers the 6mmbr but always has unbelievable results (if I didn't see him do them I wouldn't believe they are even possible. I hope that helps. Dave, the range master knows him if you need to track him down.
