How much is he charging for the gunsmithing fee...and then surplus city takes a cut...I dont mean to take away his business because he is a good guy but I know someone that will build it for hundreds less.

you can google the results from the Yukon match and others fairly easy. It is good to see what the people are shooting and what powder they are using. Lots of Benchmark barrels out there. I don't know anything about them.
Also lots of wild cats. 6mmToad. WTF

Limbic,
The 6mm Toad is a 6.5-284 Lapua case shortened to approx. 1.400" I think and necked down to 6mm. My bubby Walt Day is shooting that one. A hell of a lot of work to make the cases. It will shoot! The was a write up about it in an issue of Precision Shooter last year.
The Favorite Barrel brand changes with the Match location. Benchmark is a big favorite at Yukon. Broughton & Krieger in NC 1K and Brux is making a showing in NC 600 yard.

i spoke with Tim last week and he was finishing up an F-class rig. I think it may have been 6.5-284 that he was finishing up. I know he has built a handful of them lately.
