Hi I am looking to get a couple of barrels for my Blaser R8 - one for stalking in 6.5CM and one match profile in 308 The issue is that the factory sporter profile 6.5CM is a 1/10 twist which will not stabilise the heavier 120gr-140+gr bullets I want to use to get the most out of the calibre and the wait on the factory match barrel is long. Given reports that the custom house is both unresponsive and expensive even for blaser (I suspect that their pricing person was taught to charge in Africa by a particularly misanthropic and recently wounded Rhino) I have looked at custom options. In the UK I understand that brock and Norris will rebarrel your existing barrel and 'stub' but my only R8 barrel, in 308, is still going strong. I am not aware of other local options. Looking abroad I found bix n'Andy who have an excellent reputation for triggers and I have them in my R8 GRS stock and a carbon stock - http://bixn-andy.at/en/laeufe/ This looks good and I am getting in touch - I wondered what the import process would look like given the barrel will need to be proofed etcany thoughts on this and wider r8 barrel question? Thank you
