I'm in Duluth and have a 6.5 Creedmoor project in the works. I'd appreciate some references to do the barrel work on the project.
It will be on a Remington M700 short action and I have everything I want for the build except the barrel and a skilled gunsmith with a 6.5 Creedmoor reamer and a very good rep to blue print the action and chamber and fit the barrel. I can get an excellent barrel right now (Lilja) and my first preference would be to find someone to do the work within a radius that reaches down to the Cities or over into Wisconsin.
I'm picky on who does my gun work so I will check up on any suggestions on who to contact. I realize not every gunsmith will have a 6.5 Creedmoor reamer.
If I come up empty on local options I'll ship the work out. My first choice there is to ship to Hart Barrels in NY based on using their barrels on previous projects.
