Howdy From New York,

Nice job - I would stick to it if I were you!

They actually re-bored and rechambered the existing barrel?

Very cool working with PO Ackley would be a dream,you’ll probably not see craftsmanship like that again,that’s definitely a keeper.

If the $250 is just for re-boring, I do not think I would do that. For around $320.00 I think I would prefer to have a new custom barrel. All my re-barrel jobs (except Rim Fire) are Krieger Barrels. I much prefer them to Remington Barrels. I did not go to his web site, but are these cut rifling?
