Re: Barreling 336

Closer to home you might try Steve Baldwin in Oklahoma City. Or Steve Durren at Johnson's Sporting Goods in Adrian, Mi. Both very high quality gunsmiths that can do any work well. Might save some money on shipping being close.

Re: Custom Cartridge Brass Maker (from MarlinOwners)

On a related topic, Duck Creek Sporting Goods sent me an email notice that he's getting .25-20 WCF in next week! Selling for $17 per 50 pcs. Denny is a great resource for hard to get brass, and somehow ferrets out runs that bigger companies don't try to locate.

Re: job box

I love cased sets, regardless of era or age. Just something about having a gun and all it's accessories in one case that gets me. It's shades of the days when makers or shooters traveled with their guns and wanted cases like yours to ensure everything they might need was with them.
