Ok so 260 ai are you building them on short action or long action?  Seems that if you want to run the larger bullets then the longer action may be the route to take so you are able to extend them out or use a wyatt's mag?   Thanks for your answers to all the questions on here!!

The 260AI's are on short actions with Wyatt's mag boxes.

A little.  Enough to know that the 195's are way more finicky to get to shoot then the 180's.  Its already a finicky cartridge, but the 195's make it even more so.

What's your process for cleaning a rifle, and how often do you clean it?  I have heard lots of mixed opinions.

Depends on the cartridge, but generally 300-500 rounds seems to be a good number for our competition guns to keep carbon buildup in the throat to a minimum.  Run a few wet patches of Butch's through it on a brass jag, then scrub with another couple wet patches on a jag, then dry patch it out.  Copper fouling is pretty much non-existent with our barrels after initial break-in so the Butch's clears out whatever is in there.  Make sure you use a good cleaning rod (we use Dewey), and a good bore guide like the ones from Mike Lucas.  Cleaning isn't rocket science, and is definitely one of those things you can overdo.  I've purposely not cleaned my 338 Edge for 500+ rounds and it showed no signs of being affected so I don't worry too much about that one anymore unless it get really wet or dirty while hunting.

I will have a defiance Deviant Action that I will be turning into a 6.5 creed.  It will be in here in March.  I am wondering if you give me an estimated cost for the following work.

22 inch barrel- Medium or heavy palma contour
Muzzle brake
Jewell trigger
Cerakote job

It will probably go into a chassis of some type, but I'm not sure which one, maybe an orias chassis.

I would also like to know your average lead times for builds. 

Thank you very much for taking the time to answer our questions.

Great thread thanks for your input. I have a Weatherby 7mm 24" barrel. Years ago I handloaded about 10 boxes of ammo. 175 grn nosler partitions behind 80 grns of H870. Ammo is about 25 yrs old, still safe to shoot? Finally, about how many rounds can the barrel take before one can say it needs replacing? I probably shot around 200, I've killed my share of paper, lol.

The ammo will still be OK to shoot, but may not shoot well.  Over time the case and the bullet start to stick together, this causes accuracy issues.  7 Mag barrels usually go around 1800-2000 rounds before needing replaced.  With only 200 rounds on it, you have ALOT of life left.

Harris HBRMS or Atlas PSR, both have their benefits.

Do you manufacture your own barrels?

Our barrel blanks are made for us by Broughton Rifle Barrels.  We do all the threading and chambering.

I think it's time to put a brake on my 7mag. Was out at the range the other day signing in my 223, went to check the zero on the 7mag. Zero is still good, but my shoulder did not like the transition.
How busy are you guys at the shop?  Should the barrel be cut down to install a brake? Can you pm me a price for the job?

New chassis build......you guys are hearing correct!  Our Competitor V2 now comes with a slightly different barrel profile and we've worked with MPA to fit their chassis to our Rogue action.  Along with that, we've been able to actually lower the price!  We're working on getting the website updated and will be adding more items to the store.  We've recently been added as a dealer for Armageddon Gear, and will be carrying several of their products including the Game Changer bag in our webstore.

What does the MPA chassis weigh vs the manners stock on the competitor tactical?

The MPA adds about 3/4# over a T2a.  We've changed the barrel contour to improve the balance due to the weight difference so you really don't even notice any additional weight.

Here is a quick picture of the V2 Comp Rifle.  Will have full details up on the website after the Western Hunting Expo next week.  Will also have the new Carbon Hunters up as well.

I have a question about barrel contours.  I am going to do a 6.5 creedmoor, but I am a little unsure of what contour.  I have it narrowed down to either a heavy or medium Palma in 24".  I am leaning towards the medium contour as I want to use it for PRE style comps.  But what would the weight difference be between the 2 of both are 24" 6.5 CM?  And also what would the muzzle diameter be on both?

Medium Palma contour is very close to a rem varmint.  They are .830" at 26".   A heavy Palma will be .930 at 26" and will be heavier.  Either will work, just depends on how heavy you want it to be.
