It is not necessary to rebarrel just use the appropriate 280AI reamer to reshape the chamber. I know of no one in Easten PA

The Varmint Shop/Lester Knipe 610-395-8146

I have had alot of work done by Lester. He as always produced accurate top quality work for me.

If you go with a rechamber of the original barrel, the barrel will have to be set-back one thread turn to get a properly cut chamber and realign the extractor cut.

Good luck, Tony

Thanks i will give him a buzz, i think ruger did a crappy job with the rifle. I sent it back and it shot 1.5” at fifty yards and they said that was acceptable, i expect better than that at 100. Plus when you fire the rifle even with factory loads it puts a ring around the brass maybe half inch above the bottom of the case which i dont get. So I figured just rebarrel it to hopefully fix the whole situation.

The Village Arms in Gap, PA. is a Hack. He ruined one of my T/C Contender barrels, seems he could not endmill and tap 2 additional scope mount holes without stripping them out. All my work goes to Bob Green.

Village Arms prices are not very good either. Ammo is overpriced and their black powder is five to six dollars more than one of the other stores I buy it from. Plus they never have all that much to look at. I only stop in there maybe once a year if I'm up that way. Normally come away with nothing.
