Sweet! Very nice build.

I used NSS for the barrel for the 260. I am using https://www.crownridgebarrelworks.com/ for the 7mm-08. Anthony cut and threaded the barrel and shipped it to me and I had it in 3 days. No extra charge for cutting and threading. Wilson barrel.

If you are looking for a greyboe stock, red hawk rifles has them in stock (greyboe is a 6-8 week wait!) https://redhawkrifles.com/

CrownRidgeBarrelworks also makes, a real NICE Looking, RemAge,. "Nut" that, fit perfectly, on my NSS Criterion, 6 XC Barrel that, shoots, ONE ragged Hole, 5 shot groups in, the 3's ! I headspaced Rifle, on a NEW Norma 6 XC case, using it for, the "Go" gage and with Bolt, very TIGHT ( just starting to close ) on, the actual, "Go" gage ! A NO Go Gage was NOT, necessary.
There is, NO stretching of, cases !
Forster Dies, Size perfectly to, THIS Dimension of Case.

With my 280AI, virgin Nosler brass was way to tight even though the Go Gauge was set correctly. So I backed it off a little using the brass as the Go Gauge like you did. The No Go Gauge verified all was good. My brass doesn’t stretch much.

NOT all Brass is, created Equal.
I trust, Lapua and Norma Brass, the most.
I've heard that, ADG and Peterson cases are, Precisely made, too.
I have Nosler's .22-250 Rem Brass and so far it's, been good but, I'm NOT sure, I'd trust it, enough, to Head space, a Rifle, tho !
You've obtained, the objective of, NOT stretching your cases, too much,.. good "Job" !
