    I'm looking for a 7mm blank for a .284 Win project.
    Prefer Chrome Moly, straight blank, 1/9 twist.

    The gunsmith I use has several SS 1-8.5 tubes Krieger. Call Bill's Custom Automatics ask for Tim Thompson 662-398-5001

    Thanks, I've checked and they don't have the straight blank I'm looking for in CM.

    I would do SS if I was convinced I could get the blue finish I want.

    Get the barrel and action nitrited and it will give it a deep dark luster to the metal while improving the metal.
