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.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
