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 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.
