I have a custom rifle coming in from Remington's Custom shop in about 2 weeks and I want to have it Ackley Improved and Cryofroze as soon as I get it. I do not have a custom gunsmith in my area that I'm comfortable with, to work on this rifle...so it looks like I'm going to have to send it out somewhere. Could any of you guys recommend a good gunsmith to send it to? Thanks in advance for any input.

Where are you from we may know a custom smith that is in your state or close by I use Dwight Scott for my barrels he is in MI 45 min from my house. But Dwight is one of the best BR smiths in the country

The DC metro area...The WV panhandle, now, to be specific. I really want someone good, to work on it. This is the most expensive rifle that I have bought to date, so I don't mind paying to make sure it's done right. Thanks!

I can recommend Dwight Scott He can rechamber the rifle for you Dwight doesn't do the Cryofreze thing. The last barrel he did for me has shot excellent for me. I had it chambered for long range varmint hunting and since have taken up 1000 yard competition. The chambering is for a 6.5-284 Kreiger barrel on an old Hart A1 action. I shot a 3.666 inch group in Quantico and a 4.0? in Ohio and at the nationals in Quantico a 4.6? with a rifle that was made to shoot live Varmints. I have a barrel being chambered this week by Dwight another 6.5-284 for my HG and will be getting 2 LG barrels this winter. Dwight's # is 1-517-663-1750

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

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
