Got my action(tikka t3), Barrel (Krieger), and stock on the way(krg).

So the big question now is who to have build it. Any recommendations for good smiths in the east Texas area?

He built my 6.5x47, and it's a hammer! He has the .167 freebore reamer, I think. There's 3 different freebore sizes of 6.5x47 reamers, and his is the one in the middle.
