    Kevin doesn't make the barrels, he orders them from Benchmark and then chambers them and cuts the threads for your action. I'm certian he'll tell you Benchmark are the best (that's what he told me) and I can't dissagree, athough I've had excellent accuracy with other brands as well. I've never had Kevin work on my barrels 'cuz I live about 20 min south of Benchmark , but Kevin turned me onto them. Keep us posted on your build progress.

    For a very similar project, I went with a McGowen from Jim (Northland Shooter Supply) over at savageshooters.com. $$269 for the barrel, and I did the work myself (SS barrel on a 116SS action)...



    Needless to say I'm very pleased with the end product 8) .

    That is one really nice rifle. I will have to check them out. I don't load any of my own ammo yet. I am sure that it makes a heck of a difference on your groups. I would like to get this set up and use factory ammo. I know it is not as accurate, but it is easy to find. I will have to start reloading later to save money. Thanks for the heads up on the barrel.
    Never give an answer unless asked a question.
