    Smith for t3 rechamber

    After a few years of wanting a 284 finally put things into play. Was going to send to gunworks but they have now put all 284 jobs on hold. Any other recommendations on where I should send instead.

    Worn the reamer out? Sounds like they’ve done a few!

    They have been hard & causing issues for ages that's why Guys won't touch them....

    Wouldn't take long to wear a reamer out & if it wasn't ground perfect for the material being cut to begin with it would be a dog....

    I see on a recent FB discussion about this exact same thing Dean Maisey has said he can ream Tikka barrels to 284, give him a yell, he does good work.

    Gunworks did a tikka 280Ack re-ream.
    Works a treat!
    I wonder if the tikka metal has always been hard or if its a batch issue.
