    I have a 6mm barrel on order from Brux that will be arriving in 3-4 months. I've heard a lot of great stuff about PTG's reamer in 243 Tactical Match. Since this rifle is more a truck gun than LR rig, I will probably have a local BR smith knock it out for me. Will it be cheaper to buy the reamer and then resell it after the job, or should I just rent it? The cost of the reamer from PTG is $138 plus shipping. Renting is $36 plus shipping both ways. What does a used reamer sell for? Anybody know where I could pick up a used one in good condition? If I buy, which forum is best for selling the reamer? Any thoughts would be appreciated as I am in uncharted territory here.

    I would say if you think your going to shoot this enough to possibly burn through a barrel buy the reamer and don't sell it. That way you will have the same reamer for the next chamber job.
