    Ok I got my Savage model 11 action and am ready to build it into a fine mid range rifle. Im looking for good barrel makers that can make me a 20" barrel chambered in 7mm-08 with a large shank. Anybody know where to start.

    I just had my Savage re-barreled with a Benchmark barrel. In the spring I am going to have a 280 AI built with a Savage action and a Benchmark barrel or I will build it myself maybe...

    Have you had a chance to play with the new barrel? I am thinking about building a rifle and they are on my list to do the rebarreling.

    I was thinking about a Shilen barrel or one of Sin-arms. I know sin-arms is a sponsor here, so Im hoping there are some owners on here also. I wish that Benchmark had a website, I like to look at pictures!

    Also, I'm building this rifle entirely myself. So it has to be threaded and chambered.

    Sinarms did the barrel for my 338 Edge.

    He also did the 338 Edge barrel on my good friend, Eaglet's, rifle.

    We are both very happy with his work.
