I have a Interarms mark X in 30-06 with a barrel that looks like hell. I have tried multiple bullet types and loads but it will not consistently do better then a 3" group. The crown is clearly in poor shape. I have begone thinking about having it recrowned or barreled. I am not looking for match quality accuracy here, if I can get consistent 1.5 to 2" groups I will be happy.
Is there anyone in Fairbanks anyone would recomend for a rebarrel or recrown?
What am I looking at here $ wise, for labor not barrel costs?
There is nothing I would like more then to do this work myself as I feel I have the ability, but I currently do not have a lathe or a place to put one. If the labor cost is to high I will likely just get another 06 and let this one be till I have a house and a lathe.
PS has anyone done a rebarrel with short chambered barrels and a pull through reamer? I have been looking at Adams & Bennett barrels and renting a pull through reamer.
