    I agree. I believe I have a good Smith, he takes his time, he's not pushy, and I've personally seen his work. He took my 30-06 Savage 110E (manufactured ~1982) which was shooting 4-6" (literally)...

    Thank you sir. I checked them as well but they are out of stock. I'll just keep my eyes open. It's going to take 6 months to get my barrel anyhow.
