    Buddy of mine just paid $1100 for some custom work on a 6.5x55 Swede. That included $450 for a Mcmillan stock, $330 for a hart barrel and the $320 included labor from a gunsmith I hugely respect to chamber, thread, bed, touch up the lugs and adjust trigger. For me it is not worth learning to do all that stuff as labor is running about 30% of the total cost of the builds I like. For others working with improving factory rigs, it may be very worth it.

    Yup, that'd be me. I like to think I can do everything I need to do with a factory rig.

    I find myself agreeing with Smokepole again. I'm going to bed to try to get over that.

    I would love to attend a rifle tweaking class. Learn how to maximiz the factory rifle, so to speak.

    Another class option, not to sidetrack this, might be around handloading. I've picked up a couple of lefty factory rifles which with no tinkering are shooting quite well with handloads developed for them. I've reloaded a lot, but still consider myself a novice. Just a thought.
