    I have years of trade and maintenance experience so I did it myself.

    However, I think most folks with some hobby experience could do the same. The bedding is probably the trickiest part having to do with judging the ammount of epoxy to get the right fill.

    BCinKS,
    I feel the .260AI and .260 Rouge do quite well for burning 5 grains less of powder than the 6.5-284. 2900 FPS is very doable in my 25" Broughton 5C with reloader22 and VV N560 but my really sweet load is with 4831SC at 2850 FPS. in the 25" barrel.

    I hunted with the .260 Rouge this year and do to no real good range finder I limited my shots to 300yds. I harvested three nice sized does' with this rifle using three rounds.
    One heart shot and two lung shots. The farthest was 250 yds. went about 10 yds. and it was all over, that was using the 140 amax. My humble opinion would be that this would be a very ethical 5-600yd. hunting rifle givin' good conditions and a confidant shooter. Others will argue......
    FWIW,

    Screech,
    Broughton does not offer any fluting options but he will send the barrel to a gunsmith of your choice to have it fluted and then it is returned to Broughton for finish lapping and stress relief. A cut rifle barrel should only require lapping after it is fluted.

    I did not do the fluting on the rouge as my CNC with the rotary table only has 12" of X travel and my bridgeport NC does not have a rotating table. Karl Feldkamp did the helical flutes on the barrel and does and excellant job. I do the helical fluting on the bolts and straight fluting on barrels. here is another pic. of the 7mmwsm and some of my barrel fluting.

    Nate are you using a recoil lug on the non barrel blocked rifles?

    d-a,
    Yes, I have been using Sharp Shooters surface ground lugs.
    The other option is to double pin a Holland style lug.

    I'll confirm Nate's opinion on the 260AI with 140 a-max,
    All one shot kills
    wt buck 609 yards bang-flop
    md buck 300 yards ran 30 yards
    md buck 300 yards ran 20 yards
    wt doe 550 yards ran about 40 yards
    wt doe 600 yards bang flop

    Mine are running just over 2900fps in a 26" tube over H4831sc.

    Built on a Sav 11ss
