    Im very intrigued on a 375 cheytac in a repeater format but I google the internet and this website I have only found hill country rifle that make a reasonably priced ELR rifle. So my question is does anybody have a reviewof hill country rifle.
    Also can anybody recommend any other rifle manufacturer of a .375 cheytac.
    Im not wanting to bash any rifle makers Im trying to find a reliable and well respected .375 cheytac maker.

    Kirby Allen, apsrifles.com. He was doing ELR before most folks had a clue it could be done. JohnnyK.

    If the wait is ok that is the route. As far as fast turn around and Great rifles and good price check out pierce engineering. They will be doing all mine from now on. Seems to be the only one who has great communication and does what they say the will in a timely manner.

    I do not own one but I’ve handled the Cheytac m200 intervention. Truly a high power rifle

    Bruce Baer did my 338-408 he also can do 375 and 350 A bit slow but not 3 years depends on haw far he is behind. This is the 4 th gun he built for me Depends on where you are located? by the way he has his own bottom metal with 6 shot mag.

    Kirby A. of apsrifles.com is a legend. A very experienced guy when it comes to rifle making. He did some of my custom built ones.

    I had Kirby build a rifle for me when he was still kind of unknown. It shot great, however there is no way I’d wait 3+ years for one. Plus he’s too busy to even work on the rifle he built for me.
    I had a 6 month wait back then, we’ll worth that!
    Is he somewhat of a pioneer?
    Yes
    A wizard?
    No
    There are lots of good gunsmiths out there that make just as accurate a rifle. My latest rifle was put together by Long Rifles Inc and shoots freaking awesome! Had a longer tighter twist barrel put on by another smith/builder and it shoots just as good. One week wait and a fraction of the cost.
    I think your best bet is to get the components yourself and have a reputable guy put it together. Less wait and less heart ache, plus you get exactly what you ordered.
