    I need help locating a gunsmith in my area that will do a rechamber to 338 lapua for me on a 300 remy mag. I am in the Las Vegas area. I would also like to talk to Mr. Chris Mathews if he sees this re: GA doing some of the work and the cost involved. Any help you guys can give will be very much appreciated.

    The only two smiths I can recomend from Experiance is Darrel Holland and
    Kevin Rayhill , both do great work , Holland is kinda high and he has a pretty long wait but his work is world renound
    Kevin Rayhill does great work and has a pretty fast turnaround.
    BUT
    From what I have been told our own
    Chris Mathews is top shelf also.

    K&P in Raton, New Mexico also Schneider in Payson,Az #(928) 474-2652. I know Gre-Tan in Kersey, Co. does some pretty nice work #(970)353-6176 also Parry's gunsmithing in Pueblo,Co #(719)566-3020 both of the latter two they shoot the 1000yd matches and think Parry has the longest varmit shot to date somewhere over 2000yds. I'm going to have Parry put together a 284 on a rem 700 action later this year. Dan Dowling over in Grand Junction, Co don't have his # but you can get from Benchrest.com does a pretty nice job. Alot of good gunsmiths around I've only hear good things about Chris Mathews on the net here. Well good luck.

    I have had great results on two guns smithed by S1-a 6mm imprived and a .300/.338 lapua----his guns shoot extremely well and the machine work is so good you dont want to shot it... alot like a beautiful wood stock on a shotgun... to pretty to shoot.null

    Phonso I am having a 6.5 wsm and a 7mm rum built by S1 seems like he really knows what he is doing. I have seen some of his rifles and they look like they will shoot.
