Rebarreling the .308 – Proof Research and Custom Guns

I caught up with Greg from Custom Guns for a chat about a new build - we talk about all the choices in a 'semi' custom gun, Remington blueprinting, barrel lengths and more in a chat full of excellent advice.

A constant learner with an inquisitive mind, Kerry created The Bloke as a way to share what he was learning from the community of experts he found himself surrounded by. Precision Shooter and GunSafe soon followed. Somewhere along the line, he picked up one or two things himself. But don't call him an expert.

A met the folks from Proof Research at the Sika Show, got talking, and a few months later received an axle of a rifle barrel from them. I knew I wanted to do something in 6mm, so got a blank, heavy palma profile in a 1:7.5 twist.

For various reasons, it took me a while to get the project started, but when Greg from Custom Guns in Invercargill got in touch offering to help out, I figured it was a good prompt to get going. I sent the action down to him to blueprint and chamber the new barrel.

I caught up with Greg for a chat about the project, but we also talk about considerations for setups in general, blueprinting Remingtons and a lot more. Check out the video for a pile of info.
